Fortnite Announces It’s Adding NFL And Football Skins So Players Can Rep Their Favorite Teams

Epic Games

If there’s one thing we know about Fortnite and Epic games it’s that they aren’t afraid to get a little silly. Remember when they gave players the ability to play as Thanos and use the Infinity Gauntlet?

All the dances you can do throughout the game merely add to the silliness. And, you know, the fact that you can build structures while hoping around and ride a bicycle into battle, just as one so often does in the real world.

You know what else has been silly lately? The NFL. Yes, the league known for cracking down on fun has loosened their ties a bit and have allowed players to start celebrating when they score touchdowns. So of course, some players like Eric Ebron used this as an opportunity for Fortnite inspired celebrations.

The NFL and Fortnite seemed like a match made in heaven. Epic and the NFL must have realized this, because fans will now get to wear skins of their favorite NFL teams.

Epic announced Monday that users will now be able to buy NFL themed skins to wear while they play. Want to represent the Patriots on your way to the No. 1 spot, or maybe you just want to run around as the Browns and frustrate people that they’re getting dunked on by someone in a Browns jersey? You can do that now.

This was just one of those crossovers that made sense. Not only because of Fortnite’s immense popularity with athletes, but when fans are given the opportunity to represent their favorite teams they’ll take them. Even in a competitive shooter.
