Fortnite has also partnered with the legendary Brazilian soccer player Pelé to bring his iconic air punch celebration to the game. Players can now celebrate their victories in style, just like the iconic player did throughout his career. 

Fans will have an opportunity to unlock the Air Punch Emote and Kickoff Set for free by participating in the Pelé Cup on Jan. 20. The top player in each region will earn a signed FC Santos shirt and the runner-up in each region will get the emote and outfit set. Official rules for the Pelé Cup can be found here.

A new soccer-inspired Creative island has also been added to Fortnite that will let players participate in their own soccer tournament. Players must use their bodies, axes, power-ups, and speed boosts to score on their opponents in the four-vs-four bracket-style game mode. Each match has two rounds and the winners move on to face another team fighting for their spot in the grand finals.
