National Football League teams up with Epic Games, enters world of 'Fortnite'

Fortnite: Here is What Happened During the Cube Event

Fortnite's gorgeous Cube event sends players into a crazy void

"Fortnite" has become a cultural phenomenon and mega-hit for video game developer Epic Games, boasting 125 million players around the world.

The cool thing about these NFL uniforms is that each NFL outfit can be swapped to any of the 32 official teams in the league.

The Fortnite server status has gone haywire following the conclusion of Epic Games Cube Event in the game this evening. The way it works is simple: you buy the "NFL Outfit" item from the shop, and from there you can choose which team you want and the number that'll show on the back.

The team outfits will be available in the Fortnite shop from Friday, November 9.

This is the first time Epic Games partnered on in-game outfits with another company, and Mark Rein, co-founder of Epic Games, expressed his enthusiasm for the new National Football League team outfits and what it will mean for National Football League fans who play "Fortnite".

The NFL deal is the first time that Fortnite has reached a partnership with an outside company to bring branded skins to the game.

"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.

Unlike Fortnite's weekly challenges, which are usually catered toward some specific seasonal content, these challenges will be naturally obtained if you play some Fortnite over the coming week.
