Fortnite: Soon You’ll Be Able to Play as Your Favorite NFL Team

In what is Epic Games’ biggest partnership to date, you’ll soon be able to play Fortnite wearing your favorite NFL team uniform.

The NFL is the biggest and most popular sport in the US and Epic Games’ Fortnite is one of the most popular video games around right now, so joining forces for a special partnership makes a lot of sense for the two properties. Unique outfits are a wildly popular method to customize your Fortnite character and beginning November 9 at 7 p.m. ET, you’ll be able to purchase any one of 32 NFL team uniforms from the Battle Royale Item Shop.

The team uniforms come with matching helmets that feature the same helmet and face mask color scheme as the teams. Players will be able to customize the uniform with any jersey number from 1 to 99. You’ll also be able to equip the same uniform and jersey number for your squad. The partnership doesn’t end there; gliders, emotes, harvesting tools and even a referee outfit will also be available.

In a bit of sad news, it seems you’ll only be able to select the home uniform for your favorite NFL team. No road or alternative uniforms will be available. That’s a shame because teams have some pretty sweet color rush uniforms.

This will mark the second major partnership Epic Games has entered with a big company. Earlier this year it teamed up with Marvel for a special Thanos skin complete with the Infinity Gauntlet.
