Epic Games Fortnite has announced it is teaming up with the Air Jordan brand to create exclusive in-game items.
You can expect new skins - as well as shoes - for your character starting today.
The battle-royale superpower took to Twitter to tease the news with simply a goat emoji, along with a basketball, a sneaker and a red arrow emoji. The translation here is Michael Jordan – the G.O.A.T. of basketball – will be joining Fortnite in some fashion.

The game has had its fair share of success stories with collaborations. These include working with the NFL to celebrate last year’s Superbowl, a celebration that gave players new skins and a special game mode. Epic Games has also paired up with Marvel during its two huge Avengers movies. Very recently also there was a partnership with John Wick for the third iteration of the movie.
Nothing is 100 per cent concrete just yet, but Fortnite players can expect new skins, game modes, and potentially a more sporty game mode. The additions will become available with the 9.10 update coming today.
