Fortnite and Verizon team up for in-game Super Bowl LV fan experience

Epic Games and Verizon have teamed up to create a massive Super Bowl LV celebration inside of Fortnite. The fan experience adds a full stadium to the game’s creative mode.

The event begins today and runs through Tuesday, February 9. During that time, players can pop into the game’s creative mode and explore the Verizon 5G stadium, built by Beyond Creative. Verizon says the stadium is the “largest activation ever built in Fortnite‘s creative mode.”

The celebration acts as a sort of all-access event where fans can interact with digital versions of players. Four football minigames will also be playable inside the stadium. Epic teases a few other surprises inside the stadium, including a scavenger hunt.

Verizon will host a digital competition inside the event where football players and popular streamers play some of the stadium’s games. The event will stream on Verizon’s Twitch channel and Twitter on Tuesday, February 2, and Friday, February 5.

Beyond the Verizon collaboration, Fortnite has other plans for Super Bowl week. Gridiron Gang outfits return to the game on Wednesday, February 4. The cosmetics include two outfits for every NFL team and the logo-a-go back bling.

Starting on February 4, Fortnite will get a new mode based on this year’s Super Bowl match-up. Players will be split into teams: The Kansas City Chiefs and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Epic says there’s no prize for the event other than bragging rights.

Finally, Twitch and the NFL Players Association will host the Twitch Rivals Streamer Bowl II on Wednesday, February 4. The event features streamers competing in Fortnite for a $1 million nonprofit prize pool. The event will have its own halftime show featuring T-Pain.

But if you’re like a lot of folks I’ve talked to over the years, you might also be about to make a big mistake. I'll get to that part in a moment.

This time last year I was lucky enough to go behind the scenes at Super Bowl LIV in Miami Gardens, Florida. No such luck this year, so, like you, I’m looking forward to watching the game at home and, naturally, I’m going to watch it on the biggest screen I can.
