MILAN – This week Inter and Epic Games are celebrating global football in Fortnite, alongside more than 20 other top clubs around the world.
Starting 23 January, players can choose from ten different variants of new “Kickoff Set” Outfits to represent their favorite club in-game. Each Outfit can be swapped to any of the 23 football clubs participating, including Inter. Additionally, players will be able to earn or purchase two new emotes, including a “Fancy Footwork” dribbling emote and the iconic “Pelé’s Air Punch” celebration.
Fortniteplayers and footballers around the world can jump into the game on 20 January for the opportunity to earn rewards even earlier by participating in the Pelé Cup. Anyone playing the game can also visit the Creative Hub for an immersive football experience throughout the week, and join select clubs around the world in hosted Fortnite tournaments.
