Fortnite is no stranger when it comes to collaborations with pop culture and famous personalities. Last year, Fortnite had an in-game concert, and this year it welcomed Neymar Jr.
While some fans cried out about the unnecessary collaboration, it’s no secret that the world of Fortnite will continue to have these crossovers despite backlash from a few fans.
Season 6 doesn’t have anything to do with Neymar Jr, but there is a lot of in-game material centered around him. Fortnite’s soccer-themed content includes everything from missions to new skins that can be unlocked.

- The second and third place will earn 400 and 300 V-bucks respectively.
THE GAME PLAN
