Fortnite’s Next Crossover Features Nike Air Jordans
By Colin Stevens
Joining the growing list of Fortnite crossovers is Fortnite X Jumpman for Creative: a new set of cosmetics and a Limited Time Mode (LTM) centering around Nike Air Jordans. Announced by Epic Games, Fortnite X Jumpman is available now and features the Downtown Drop LTM by Jordan featuring creative artists NotNellaf & Tollmolia. In this, players launch off jumps, grind down the city streets and collect coins to win in a decidedly more skateboard-centric than basketball-centric mode. Players can complete free challenges and unlock the Back Board Back Bling (skate boards that are affixed to your character’s back) and its nine style variants.
The crossover also features the Hang Time Bundle, where players can get the Grind Outfit, Clutch Outfit and a challenge pack unique to the set – here’s where those sweet, sweet Air Jordans come from. Players who own the Hang Time set will have access to more challenges, which unlock additional rewards, which include more styles for the Grind and Clutch outfit along with two unique sprays. Fortnite X Jumpman comes with the Fortnite v9.10 update. New to Battle Royale are Hot Spots: here, randomly selected locations on the map will have a high loot rate with an increase of supply drops. The LTM rotation includes Sniper Shootout Duos (sniper rifles only, downed players are eliminated instantly), Unvaulted Squads (battle royale with limited set of weapons made up of items that are vaulted in standard modes) and Close Encounters Squads (close quarters combat with shotguns and jetpacks).
Fortnite Season 9’s patch notes have been revealed, and it’s currently in its second week of challenges. Other recent Fortnite crossovers include Fortnite X John Wick and Fortnite X Avengers: Endgame. Have a tip for us? Want to discuss a possible story? Please send an email to email@example.com.
