With Euro 2020 just around the corner, Fortnite is getting in on football’s popularity. The battle royale titan is bringing two major football stars, England’s Harry Kane and Germany’s Marco Reus, into the game. Here’s how you can use these stars to get a Victory Royale.
How do you get the Harry Kane and Marco Reus skins in Fortnite?
The Harry Kane and Marco Reus skins in Fortnite are available from June 11, the starting date of Euro 2020. Like most special skins, they’ll be available in the Fortnite Item Shop. Harry Kane will appear in the white England kit, and Marco Reus in the striped Germany kit. You can either buy them separately, or as a bundle, which comes at a discount.
Currently, the official price for the Harry Kane and Marco Reus skins hasn’t been announced. However, looking at the Item Shop, you can get a good idea of how much they’ll cost. Individual skins tend to cost between 1,500-1,700 V-Bucks, with two-skin bundles at the 2,000 V-Bucks mark. Therefore, to get both skins you’ll need to purchase the 2800 V-Bucks bundle in the store. This costs $19.99, or £15.99.
On top of the cosmetic skin, the Harry Kane costume also comes with an emote called the “Hurrikane.” It’s currently unclear what this is, but it’s likely his trademark fist-pump celebration. Marco Reus comes with the Marcinho emote and back bling, named after his nickname from German fans.
Harry Kane and Marco Reus aren’t the first footballers to step onto the Battle Bus. Earlier this year, Brazilian star Neymar Jr. made his way into Fortnite, along with his own mech companion.
In other news, Battlefield 2042 was officially revealed yesterday. Leaks suggest it’ll contain a robot dog as a companion, and a grappling hook for traversal. It’s also thought that an open beta will be available to players before its October release date.
