“Each Outfit can be swapped to any of the thirty-two NFL teams, plus an additional unique Fortnite team. You’ll also be able to choose any number from 1-99 to place on your jersey to complete the official NFL look,” reads the announcement.
This isn’t the first time that Fortnite has partnered with a major company or brand. Last May, Fortnite teamed up with Marvel for a cross-over for its latest blockbuster film, Avengers: Infinity War. This brought custom game elements and even allowed players to take the form of Thanos, the movie’s main antagonist.
News of the NFL partnership comes just a week after Fortnite creator, Epic Games, raised $1.25 billion in a financing round that values the company at nearly $15 billion, with participation from major investors including Kleiner Perkins and Lightspeed Venture Partners.
