Fortnite players will now be able to put their Giallorossi pride on virtual display in the battle royale game - with brand new emotes, outfits and tournaments.
This week, AS Roma and Epic Games (‘Epic’) are celebrating global football in Fortnite, alongside more than 20 other top clubs around the world.
Starting January 23, players can choose from 10 different variants of new “Kickoff Set” outfits to represent their favorite club in-game. Each outfit can be swapped to any of the 23 football clubs participating, including AS Roma.
Additionally, players will be able to earn or purchase two new emotes, including a “Fancy Footwork” dribbling emote and the iconic “Pelé’s Air Punch” celebration.

Anyone playing the game can also visit the Creative Hub for an immersive football experience throughout the week, and join select clubs around the world in hosted Fortnite tournaments.
“Football is consistently one of the top sports that our players tell us they want to see and experience in Fortnite," said Nate Nanzer, Head of Global Partnerships at Epic Games.
"We’re excited to partner with AS Roma to bring ‘the beautiful game’ to Fortnite fans around the world as they face off in competitive tournaments, experience new creative modes of gameplay, and celebrate global football.”
