NBA Superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo Joins the Fortnite Icon Series

Fortnite has held a strong place in history during its five-year lifespan. Whether you’re a fan of the game or not, there’s no denying that they’re pioneers in collaboration. Epic Games has teamed up with the world’s biggest brands, franchises, influencers and stars to create a world where Darth Vader Kamehameha Ariana Grande feels like an ordinary event.

You can see in the below screenshot that Fortnite announced brand new skins for Antetokounmpo on the right side you will see the suit while on the left side is the more stylish and eye-catching Hoplite Giannis skin.

Antetokounmpo is a Greek-Nigerian expert basketball player, so you can see some of his ethnicity personified through the designs and patterns of his skin and accompanying cosmetics. He also earned the nickname called “Greek Freak” for his playing qualities and additionally in terms of ball-handling skills, gaming speed, stability, stamina and many more.

The best feature I liked is Antetokounmpo’s skin colour changes once it strikes 100 shields but that is a characteristic exclusive to that particular skin and it is not accessible in the Hoplite version.

Here is the summary of a set below:

  • Fortnite back bling the wings of victory: this will include an Antetokounmpo outfit as well.
  • Victory in flight Glider: It is not just a court you can fly through
    • If the player has both this and the wings of victory back bling prepared this leads to the glider becoming the back bling.
