Epic Games recently announced the collaboration with the NBA. On May 21st, players will be able to grab the In The Paint Fortnite set which is the NBA Fortnite skins in 31 different uniforms including all of the thirty NBA teams in the league.
There’s also Fortnite player locker bundles for Donovan Mitchell and Trae Young, but there’s no information regarding a release date for those. Next week, The NBA will crossover into Fortnite Creative. There will be a blog post showcasing the new NBA welcome hub on Tuesday, May 25th.
