Fortnite meets the NFL with football themed skins, emotes, and gear

Epic Games and the NFL are partnering to bring football-themed items to Fortnite.

It was announced Monday morning that the National Football League has agreed to a partnership with the video game developer behind Fortnite that will bring National Football League team "skins" to the game.

With the purchase of an outfit, players can choose a uniform modeled after any of the 32 NFL League Teams.

Millions of Fortnite players put away their pickaxes and holstered their weapons for a brief moment of solidarity to witness one of the battle royale's most ambitious in-game events to date.

As pointed out in the report, this event has allowed the developers to make some changes in the game map to hopefully make the overall experience more intuitive.

NFL.com reports that players only need to buy the skin once.

Other cosmetics will be available to go along with the outfits, including NFL-themed gliders, harvesting tools, emotes, and skins, the latter category housing a nice referee skin, we're told.

"Fortnite" previously added branded outfits to the game's shop, but it's the first time it has developed a partnership of this kind with other companies, according to Engadget.

Some of the NFL's biggest stars are avid "Fortnite" players, including Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster and Oakland Raiders quarterback Derek Carr.

"We have so many football fans at Epic and we know a lot of the game's fans share that same enthusiasm", said Epic Games co-founder, Mark Rein.
