One might think that the hype around Fortnite is tending to fade, however, the license developed by Epic Games continues to federate as many followers. As soon as a Fortnite event or announcement takes place, fans are there. We saw it recently when the Spanish streamer TheGrefg unveiled his Fortnite skin on Twitch, the latter broke the record of viewers on the platform owned by Amazon.

A new game mode and many other surprises

Obviously, Fortnite is now far from its heyday, but Epic Games continues to innovate in order to offer more and more content to its users. Fortnite has just announced that football will make its entry into the most famous battle royale. Yes, you read that correctly, Epic Games has just formalized partnerships with several professional football clubs to offer outfits and other accessories in the colors of your favorite club. For the moment, 23 clubs have responded to Fortnite’s call, and from January 23, players will be able to enjoy these new skins.

Epic Games to unveil new mode for Fortnite on PC

Above all, Fortnite is preparing a new game mode. In creative mode, players will be able to find a new island entirely dedicated to football. During 4v4 matches, Epic Games invites its players to score points using their bodies or even their pickaxes.

Here is the list of the 23 clubs concerned:

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

If Epic Games aims to satisfy football fans by presenting these collaborations, we will say that it is half successful. Indeed, the idea of ​​Epic Games is great, but a lot of big European clubs are missing. For the moment, this list does not include Bayern Munich, FC Barcelona, ​​Real Madrid, let alone Liverpool. In addition, no Ligue 1 club is on this list, nor even PSG, which has not hesitated to invest in e-sport for a few years.

Epic Games could only be at the beginnings of this concept, it is a safe bet that new clubs will appear without delay if this operation is a success. Can’t wait to enjoy the AS Saint-Étienne skin!
