'Fortnite' partners with the National Football League to bring team jerseys, gliders, more

Fortnite's gorgeous Cube event sends players into a crazy void

Here's what has changed in Fortnite with this weekend's newest update.

The agreement represents the first time Epic has partnered on special outfits inside Fortnite, enabling players to blend their passions for games and sports.

Available in Rare, Epic, and Legendary variants, the Heavy Assault Rifle deals 44-48 damage with each shot (depending on the variant).

With the National Football League skins, Epic Games has said that you only need to buy it once and then you can change your team colours to one of the 32 teams available. The teams must work to eliminate the opposition while monsters spawn throughout the map. Epic Games explains on its blog, "Two teams battle it out while Cube Monsters add to the fun in this large team Limited Time Mode".

Farming resources increased 75% over default.

During the game the storm is already moving in at the start of the match and the wait between each storm is much shorter.

Elsewhere, another weapon, the Pumpkin Launcher has reverted back to a standard rocket launcher now that Halloween celebrations have come to an end.

Increased chance of treasure chests spawning from 50-70% to 80-90%. The uniforms will be accompanied by a Limited-Time Mode, Blitz, which speeds up the usual battle royale action.

Increased materials found on the ground from 30 to 60 per instance. Lastly, the new weapon addition is a Candy Corn LMG, a mid range scoped weapon which fires out candy corn shaped bullets.

Increased number of llamas spawned by 4x. Fans of professional American football will be able to purchase outfits from the Fortnite item shop with V-bucks.

The football craziness isn't just for skins, however. Fortnite only has the one matchmaking pool on mobile at the moment, and if players on controllers were dumped in with folks on touchscreens it could be a massacre.

Fortnitemares Part 2 quests are now available! The outfits will be available for purchase from Fortnite's in-game store, but Epic hasn't announced pricing details yet.
