Fortnite Adding NFL Themed Skins Friday November 9th
NFL uniforms will be available for purchase from Fortnite's in-game store this week.
Since exploding onto the scene and becoming one of the most popular games in 2018, Fortnite dances have become a key in most sport celebration dances after scoring. Most common among those sports? The NFL. That is why the next round of skins released by Epic Games makes sense. Epic Games has announced it is partnering with the NFL to offer a new set of football skins in Fortnite, and they're set to arrive later this week.
Starting Friday, November 9, NFL outfits will be available for purchase from Fortnite's in-game store. Epic hasn't announced pricing details for the new skins, but you'll be able to choose between uniforms of all 32 teams in the NFL. Epic says you'll also be able to customize your jersey with any number from 0-99. The skins will be available in the store beginning at 4 PM PT / 7 PM ET.
Along with releasing the new NFL outfits, Epic Games has been teasing a new weapon with Fortnite's in-game, a Heavy Assault Rifle, feed is coming soon. Epic hasn't announced when the new gun will be added, but it will presumably arrive as part of this week's Fortnite patch.
This comes as a wave of new content releases starting at the end of Season 5 and the continuing on with the recently ended Halloween event, Fortnitemares. At the end of the Fortnitemares event, the mysterious purple cube that has been a part of the game since it first appeared toward the end of Season 5 exploded, sending players to a strange realm of light. After the players were sent back to the island, a new item had replaced the vortex that had been in the middle of Loot Lake. Epic has also rolled out a set of Li'l Kev challenges named after the community's nickname for the purple cube that will give you the chance to unlock the new Li'l Kev back bling.
So load up, ask the boys where we are dropping and make sure to dodge any players trying to tackle you as you enjoy the newest wave of releases this week from Epic Games.
