Battle royale Fortnite has collaborated with some of the world's largest franchises in the entertainment world. We have seen crossovers of characters or items from Avengers: Endgame or John Wick.
Epic Games recently partnered with sportswear brand Jordan following the NBA Finals on May 30th. Jordan belongs to the legendary basketball player Michael Jordan, whose mythical Air Jordan sneakers are based.
Therefore, the characters in the game will be able to use the tennis shoes with the Jumpman symbol. However, unlike other items, tennis will not serve as a weapon or enhance the game's PvP mechanics.
Instead, there will be a new map of Creative mode called Downtown Drop. On this map, players can jump higher, skate, and collect fashions. This is all part of the so-called Hang Time Bundle, which brings new rewards.
Hang Time Bundle is a skate themed pack
If you want to spend a few vBucks, the Hang Time Bundle is Fortnite's latest item pack. The whole package has an urban theme based on skate and basketball culture.
The Hang Time Bundle includes two new facts and a whole new challenge pack. However, players who venture into the new Downtown Drop map are able to unlock various skate-based aesthetic items.
These items do not directly affect the game but are aesthetically pleasing to any player who wants to customize their players. A varied collection of Jordan sneakers will be available over the coming weeks.
As mentioned, the NBA Finals are taking place in the United States. Jordan's partnership with Fortnite will surely streamline the event by bringing together a clothing brand and an extremely popular game.
