Jumpman has arrived in Fortnite. Epic has partnered with Nike’s Jordan brand to deliver branded content to the game. As part of the collaboration a new specially themed game mode has been added as well as some Jordan cosmetic gear.
The in-game gear comes as part of the new Hang Time Bundle and includes two outfits featuring Jordan gear. The outfits, called Grind and Clutch, both feature a red and black color scheme with the Jumpman logo. Of course, the centerpiece of any good Jordan skin would be the sneakers. Both come with Air Jordan Is that can be be changed to a variety of alternate color styles. The skins also have an exclusive challenge pack associated with them, used to unlock new color variants.
Along with these two skins, this collaboration is also bringing players a brand new game mode. The mode is called Downtown Drop by Jordan and it was specially designed for this crossover event by Creative mode artists NotNellaf and Tollmolia. The mode focuses on skateboarding and has players jumping and doing tricks around a custom map to collect coins. To go with the skateboarding theme there is also a new skateboard Back Bling with nine different style options. It can be unlocked by completing challenges in the new game mode.
While this is the first specific clothing brand partnership that Fortnite has had, it isn’t the first time the game has featured licensed products and skins in game. Just last week Epic released a John Wick skin and game mode. Two weeks ago Marvel and Epic teamed up for the Avengers: Endgame mode. And last year, the developer partnered with the NFL to release skins for each of the National Football League’s 32 teams.
The Hang Time bundle is available in game for 1,800 V-Bucks but will rotate out of the shop in the near future just like the game’s other skins. It’s still unclear how long the skateboarding mode will stick around, but a week or two is usually a safe bet.
