Following a bunch of sports-themed Fortnite crossovers over the past few years – like ones based on footballer Neymar, the NFL, and Liverpool football club – Fortnite’s getting another sporty in-game bash. North America’s National Basketball Association (NBA) is the next on the battle royale game’s list of sporty tie-ins, and this crossover brings a five-day contest which features all 30 NBA teams and a bunch of new in-game rewards.
Called Fortnite x NBA: The Crossover, the event kicks off this very day (May 19) and runs through to May 23. The headline of the event is the five-day-long competition called Fortnite x NBA Team Battles, which gets players to sign up and ‘join’ their favourite NBA team in order to complete challenges and nab some rewards.
But, it’s worth noting you’ll have to be quick about it if you want to get stuck in – you can sign up to nab either a ‘member’ or a ‘fan’ spot, with the former being limited to just 15,000 places per team and latter only open to the first 500,000 players that sign up, after which time fan sign-ups will close.
