Fortnite is one of the most popular live-service games that marketers may work with. Epic Games has proven its capacity to negotiate contracts with a variety of companies. The business has been concentrating on sports brands over the past year and has partnered with both the NBA and the NFL. And now, according to sources, there may be a crossover between Fortnite and the FIFA World Cup 2022.

Epic is extending its sports offering even further with this crossover. The first game of the 2022 FIFA World Cup is slated to take place on November 20 in Qatar. On December 18, around the time of Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 5, the competition will come to an end.

There is a ton of potential in the Fortnite and FIFA World Cup pairing, and soccer fans will greatly benefit from it. Since Epic Games has already collaborated with a variety of sportsmen and sports organizations, it shouldn’t come as a surprise if the next relationship turns out to be yet another successful project.

Fortnite x FIFA World Cup crossover is expected to bring new skins and challenges

With Epic’s new screen watching feature in Creative, users may be able to see live footage of the games as they happen. How this works will depend on whether Epic created a map for the event, as it usually does. In keeping with previous sports-related partnerships, Epic may use unique characters sporting jerseys that represent the many competing teams or logos for this year.

According to leaks from Hypex, each Fortnite FIFA World Cup 2022 crossover challenge will provide competitors 26,000 XP. Although the leaker may have overstated the number of difficulties, there should be enough for at least two Battle Pass levels.

It’s likely that the Fortnite and FIFA World Cup crossover will continue throughout the important occasion. There should be other leaks towards the end of September or the beginning of October because Epic Games is probably going to provide more details about the cooperation.
