Fortnite is increasing its Icon Series lineup of skins and cosmetics by adding players, like Harry Kane and Marco Reus, who are currently competing in the UEFA Euro 2020 Cup.
Fortnite continues its fast-paced release schedule for partnered skins and cosmetics with more footballers joining the lineup as Harry Kane and Marco Reus are being added alongside previous addition, Neymar Jr. While sports-themed skins are just one small section of what Fortnite offers, they are commemorating the UEFA Euro 2020 competitors with this release.
