Just in time for the 2021 NBA Playoffs, Fortnite developer Epic Games is launching an in-game event deemed “The Crossover” in partnership with the NBA.
There are three components to the virtual event. First is the debut of NBA team outfits in-game. Fortnite players can now purchase new skins representing each of the 30 NBA teams. In addition to the skins, a new Hookshot Emote and Mini Hoop Back Bling are also available.
Debuting in “The Crossover” are locker bundles. Each locker bundle contains three in-game items and an emote selected by NBA players. The two locker bundles available currently are the Donovan Mitchell Locker Bundle as well as another bundle curated by Trae Young.
Last, Fortnite is debuting Fortnite x NBA Team Battles. Players can visit the Fortnite X NBA Team Battles webpage to sign up and support their favorite NBA teams. On the website, players also have the opportunity to earn V-Bucks and in-game rewards.
For fans looking to kill time during commercial breaks during this year’s playoffs, Fortnite’s “The Crossover” may be the perfect option.
