NFL Superstar Patrick Mahomes Joins Fortnite
Touching down this week
Fortnite’s last big update brought the world of Dragon Ball to the biggest battle royale, but now it’s time for something a bit more grounded. Quarterback, record-breaker, and NFL and Super Bowl MVP Patrick Mahomes is heading to Fortnite, and his alter-ego Mahomes Saucy Style is also dropping in.
Both of these Outfits — as well as Patrick Mahomes accessories — will be available in the Fortnite Item Shop starting Wednesday, August 24th, at 8 PM ET. But here’s the blitz: on August 23, players have the opportunity to earn the Patrick Mahomes Outfit early with the Patrick Mahomes Cup!
Make an impact with the Patrick Mahomes Outfit, which comes with two alt Styles in addition to his default, ready for practice Style:
- Gladiator Mindset Style: Shades on and arm enhanced.
- Gameday Gladiator Style: Fear not a sack or pass rush.
And make your way to the end zone final circle with the accessories related to the Patrick Mahomes Outfit:
- Gridiron Gladiator Back Bling: Suit up for battle. (Included with the Patrick Mahomes Outfit.)
- Snap Axes Pickaxe: Expertly handled. (Glows red when swung!)
- Endzone Elite Wrap: Gear for your gear.
- Showtime Emote: Back in the game.
One day, you’re scrambling, the next, you’re putting ketchup on scrambled eggs. It wouldn’t be a Mahomes rest day if he wasn’t eating something with ketchup on it, so the Mahomes Saucy Style Outfit is also entering the Item Shop! This ketchup-embellished Outfit includes The Good Stuff Back Bling, which is, yes, a bottle of ketchup.
Take the snap before Patrick Mahomes enters the Shop! In the Patrick Mahomes Cup — a Zero Build Squads tournament happening Tuesday, August 23 — compete with your team for a chance to earn the Patrick Mahomes Outfit (+ Gridiron Gladiator Back Bling) early. Also, collect at least eight points to unlock the Secret Sauce Emoticon!
Competitors can play up to ten matches within their region’s approximately three-hour time window, and the specific event timing for each region can be found in the Compete tab in-game.
