Collect Wins For Real Life Prizes
Alongside the cosmetics coming to Fortnite, Epic is hosting the Neymar Jr. Cup on April 28th, giving players a chance to win a real-life soccer boot inspired by Neymar Jr.’s Primal form, which is shown up above. The tournament will be a solo queue affair, and the top player from each region will get a prize, which makes it a hot commodity. Players can also pick up the Spinner Takes All emote as part of the tournament, so at least if you don’t win, you have something to look forward to.
