Fortnite: Football

Well, here's a crossover you might not have expected. Epic Games has announced that Fortnite will soon be teaming up with the beautiful game, as a number of football teams (or soccer, for our American chums) will appear as in-game outfits.

Starting from 23rd January, players will be able to choose from ten different variants of male and female 'Kick Off set' outfits that represent the clubs listed below. With a decent chunk of the Nintendo Life team supporting the fearless foxes at Leicester City, we can't help but feel a little left out – but hey, you can't have everything, right?

  • Manchester City FC
  • Juventus
  • AC Milan
  • Inter Milan
  • AS Roma
  • Seattle Sounders FC
  • Atlanta United
  • Los Angeles FC
  • Santos FC
  • Wolves
  • West Ham United FC
  • Sevilla FC
  • Sporting CP
  • Borussia Mönchengladbach
  • FC Schalke 04
  • VFL Wolfsburg
  • Rangers FC
  • Celtic FC
  • Cerezo Osaka
  • Melbourne City FC
  • Sydney FC
  • Western Sydney Wanderers
  • EC Bahia

There's also a special event taking place in celebration of legendary Brazilian football star, Pelé. His iconic 'Air Punch' celebration will make it into the game as an emote on 23rd January, alongside a Pelé Cup which kicks off slightly earlier on the 20th. Players participating in this cup will have a chance to win the Air Punch Emote and Kickoff Set for free.

Will you be dropping into a new game with your favourite team's kit later this week? Feel free to Air Punch your thoughts into the comment box below.
