Epic Games has continued its spree of bringing more and more crossovers to Fortnite by welcoming the NBA to the title, featuring not only some new skins but also a few new modes as well.

The NBA crossover will bring a new skin called the In The Paint skin that includes 31 uniforms, including all 31 teams from the league. Then, there will also be a Shoot & Score pack including the Hookshot Emote and Mini Hoop Back Bling, and a Dribblin' emote is also expected to be landing. These cosmetics are looking to arrive on May 22, at 1am BST / 2am CEST.

On top of all these goodies, Fortnite is hosting an NBA-themed team battles mode, a five-day competition that started yesterday and runs until May 23. This asks the community to join with an NBA team in-game and then complete challenges to amass points for that team. At the end of the event, teams with the most points will be awarded V-Bucks and various other cosmetics.

To round it all out, Fortnite is also looking to expand its Creative mode with a new NBA Welcome Hub, set to arrive in the mode on May 25.

Take a look at the trailer for the event below.
