It’s the crossover that you always wanted. Harry Kane in Fortnite.
Harry Kane will become available to buy in Fortnite this weekend, just as the Euros kick off.
German player Marco Reus is also joining Epic’s beautiful game, and the two will come with the usual array of emotes and back blings. Fortnite has added real-world people to the game before, though typically this has been streamers and musicians with big Fortnite audiences.
Additional rewards and prize money will be available via Fortnite’s in-game UEFA Euro 2020 Cup, which kicks off next week on 16th June. This two-round tournament will have a $50,000 prize pool.
That all changed last Fortnite season, however, when the game added Neymar Jr as part of its battle pass. Documentation that became public as part of the Epic v Apple trial revealed early plans for a LeBron James skin alongside an NBA tie-in mode. While that tie-in eventually happened, the LeBron James skin is yet to appear.
Harry Kane has been urged to join Manchester United instead of Manchester City this summer if he chooses to leave Tottenham Hotspur. The forward has been linked with a departure from north London since the closing weeks of the season, having expressed his desire to win trophies.
Manchester City, Manchester United and Chelsea have already been talked up as potential destinations for the England captain ahead of next season. Pep Guardiola and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer have both been coy on the links with Kane, but it has been reported that Man City could sanction up to £70m worth of departures to fund the transfer. Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy has reportedly slapped a £150m price tag on his star striker.
