“Fortnite” players will be able to purchase and customize up to eight in-game outfits in the Battle Royale Item Shop starting on Friday, Nov. 9 at 4 p.m. PT.
With the purchase of an outfit, players can choose a uniform modeled after any of the 32 NFL League Teams. The outfits are available as both male and female figures, and once a user purchases anoutfit, they can customize the number on the jersey, between 1 and 99.
This is the first time Epic Games partnered on in-game outfits with another company, and Mark Rein, co-founder of Epic Games, expressed his enthusiasm for the new NFL team outfits and what it will mean for NFL fans who play “Fortnite.”
Brian Rolapp, chief media and business officer at the NFL, commented on the new partnership and opportunity.
