Absolutely nothing is stopping the steamroller that is Fornite. While we wait for the reveal of the next guest star to land in the game, we learn that the title of Epic Games will welcome the world of football. This will be reflected on the screen by the appearance to start of new outfits, necessarily related to the sport of round ball. We learn that 10 different outfit variants, men and women, are included in the game, knowing that each jersey can be changed to display one of the 23 football clubs around the world with which we have partnered. It will be from January 23, but from the 20 on the other hand, it will be possible to participate in the Pelé Cup which will provide an emote and its famous celebration on the field. We leave you more details later.
The clubs offered are as follows:
Manchester city fc
