Epic Games have extended its partnership with the NFL to bring new digital content to “Fortnite” and Rocket League.”

Starting Nov. 25, new Gridiron Gang Outfits will be available in “Fortnite's” in-game shop. Outfits will come in the form of redesigned NFL uniforms for all 32 NFL teams. Each outfit is made to look more aerodynamic and features a logo-a-go-go back bling. Additionally, outfits let players customize the jersey number and toggle accessories.  

"We are thrilled to expand on our partnership with Epic to bring more NFL integration into Fortnite and Rocket League," says Rachel Hoagland, vice president and head of gaming and eSports, NFL. "The response we saw from our initial integration within Fortnite coupled with the popularity of Fortnite among NFL players and fans has been incredible, and we're excited for another opportunity to give gamers a chance to express their NFL fandom within Rocket League."

Later this year, the NFL and Epic will also bring new NFL-themed content to Psyonix's “Rocket League.” This expanded partnership between the NFL and Epic paves the way for future collaborations that will reach a global gaming audience.

The move adds to the growing list of digital content partnerships for “Fortnite” and “Rocket League.” Last year, Epic Games brought characters such as Batman and John Wick to “Fortnite.”
