Battle royale shooter Fortnite is adding a pair of real-life footballers to the game to celebrate the upcoming UEFA Euro 2020 tournament.
England Team Captain Harry Kane and two-time German Player of the Year Marco Reus will both arrive as part of the game’s Icon Series this week. You’ll be able to buy them as separate outfits or together in a Kane and Reus Bundle which also contains a unique emote and Back Bling for both players.
Of course, there’s also a special in-game tournament for players to earn exclusive rewards too. As detailed on the game’s official website, the Fortnite UEFA Euro 2020 Cup will take place over two days from June 16 through June 17. The best players after two rounds stand to earn a share of a whopping $50,000 USD prize pool. Not too shabby!
Kane and Reus aren’t the only real-world football stars added to Fortnite of late, with the game welcoming Neymar Jr just a few weeks ago. Meanwhile Chapter 2 Season 7 Invasion has also launched this week, bringing along the definitely-fictional Superman and Rick from Rick and Morty.
