In line with our announcements, Fortnite is headed to a new community event that you can sign up for now.
Nearly everything was known about this event, so we just waited for the official announcement. It came out today. As we read:
“Ahead of the 2021 NBA Playoffs, the league is joining Fortnite for the first time ever! Coinciding with the debut of the State Farm NBA Play-In Tournament, Fortnite x NBA: The Crossover brings basketball’s best into the Item Shop and Fortnite Creative, and with Team Battles, a unique experience featuring all 30 NBA teams in Fortnite.”
From 8 p.m. ET On May 21, 2021, players can jump into player kits and represent over 30 league teams. The Locker Bundle includes 31 costumes, and in it, the costumes of all 30 NBA teams.
How to get V-Bucks?
As part of the entire event, you will be able to claim V-Bucks by participating in a Community Battle. You need sign up for this one using this link:
In fact, everything we wrote proved to be correct. All players can now claim the Free Spray and Banner. Just join and complete 3 challenges.
Then it gets a bit more difficult. If the team we chose wins, then we get:
- For 3rd place, 100 V-Bucks for each team.
- For 2nd place, 300 V-Bucks for each team.
- For 1st place, in addition to 500 V-Bucks, there will also be an award in the form of a backpack. The backpack, however, is different than the one from leaks.
It promises to be really interesting. You can expect special cosmetic kits created by NBA players, special skins, and backpacks.
“Some of the league’s best are ready to share what they wear when they escape into Fortnite. Starting next week, Locker Bundles personally selected by NBA guards Donovan Mitchell and Trae Young will arrive in the Item Shop.”
