CARY – Epic Games and the National Football League are returning the “Gridiron Gang” to Fortnite and also partnering for a soccer deal of sorts – the world’s football – with a partnership bringing in Epic’owned eSports Rocket League.

And players can put on new NFL “skins” to battle in Fortnite as of Nov. 25.

“All 32 NFL teams are represented with two styles to select, along with the new Logo-a-go-go Back Bling that lets you rep any team’s logo. Additionally, these Outfits let players customize the jersey number and toggle whether they want a reflective visor on the helmet,” the NFL announced Monday.

“Additionally, later this year, the NFL and Epic Games will also bring new NFL-themed content to Psyonix’s Rocket League, the globally popular game featuring rocket-powered vehicular soccer. Football fans who enjoy cars and soccer can experience it all in one game with this latest NFL and Epic collaboration.”

By renewing its deal with Epic, the NFL is teaming with a company that has so far this year delivered more than 1 billion hours of streaming entertainment, second only to Riot Games despite Apple banning Epic in an ongoing legal dispute.
