Although there have been a total of eight weeks that the weekly Friday Fortnite celebrity tournament has been played, the Grand Final of the latest running on June 29th is being called the best so far.

The winners-take-all matchup featured some of the best Fortnite players in the world, as Twitch extraordinaire Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins and Cloud9 Fortnite pro Jacob ‘Hysteria’ Reiser defeated the FaZe Clan pro duo of Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney and Dennis ‘Cloak’ Lepore.

The matches were as intense as advertised, as Ninja and Hysteria had to win two matches in the Grand Final since they were coming from the Losers Bracket.

They managed to do just that, thanks to a masterclass and brilliant performance from the pair in the first match and a swift victory in the second.

Sometime after the match, Ninja posted a video on his Twitter page offering to winning the competition that had eluded him for the previous six weeks, and started it off by paying homage to their final opponents.

“First and foremost, great games to Cloak and Tfue, absolutely dominant freaks of nature. The games were incredible. Happy they got knocked out early in the last game to be completely honest.”

He also had strong compliments for his teammate Hysteria, who got to claim a Friday Fortnite championship in just his second week of competing.

“Hysteria, great job man, love you brother. So happy we got both our first wins, that was only your second week. So, pretty litty!”

He concluded the video by offering his own afterthoughts about the competition as a whole.

“Obviously GGs to everyone that we played. Some incredible, incredible matches that we overcame. Another huge shoutout to KEEMSTAR for hosting these, they’re absolutely incredible, they give so much entertainment. If you guys were watching, I really appreciate it.”

The National Football League and Epic Games have announced a continuation in their partnership, which is allowing for a slew of new NFL-themed skins in the mega-popular battle royale game Fortnite within the next few days. 

NFL skins in Fortnite are nothing new. Back in 2018, a slew of skins based on NFL football teams made their way into the game, much to the excitement of fans of the sport.

Unfortunately, while the skins returned to the Item Shop in early 2020 due to the Super Bowl, they never really gained notoriety, with the only exception being when Epic gave players a free refund for the skins after the Washington Football Team’s name and logo was changed a few months back.

Despite this, it seems like more NFL skins are on the way.

The new NFL skins will feature a redesigned look compared to their old versions.

The two mega companies have recently announced that they will be “extending” their partnership to allow for more NFL skins in Fortnite. According to a joint press release from both companies, the new skins will be completely redesigned from their previous looks and will have a “more athletic” and “aerodynamic look and feel”.

This new selection of skins will be called the Gridiron Gang Outfits and will represent all 32 NFL teams in both the AFC and NFC.

In addition to the newly redesigned skins, fans will also have a chance to get their hands on a brand new Back Bling for their NFL skins, named Logo-a-go-go. While the name’s a bit of a tongue-twister, these new items are basically just the logo for the team you want to represent stuck onto the back of your character.

Release Date and Time

According to the company, the skins and back bling will be added to the Fortnite Item Shop in just a few days, on November 25. Like every other item added to the in-game store, it should appear when the store gets updated that day.

Currently, the big unknown is how long the items will be in the shop for. Surely, they’ll only be available for a limited time, however, the exact time frame is unclear. It could be in their for as short as a day or maybe a bit longer.

Chances are though that Epic will give fans a few days to get their hands on it before pulling it from the store. Regardless, NFL fans should be ready to grab these items if they want it because with Fortnite, you never know when they’ll come back.
