Neymar is coming to Fortnite

The Paris Saint-Germain superstar will be a key part of the game's Chapter 2 - Season 6 Primal Battle Pass, making him the first sports star in the game. He'll be joining video game icon Lara Croft and Rebirth Raven of the Teen Titans, among other new skins.  

Neymar is an avid gamer and is an apt addition to the game. As he's shown in the past, he's no slouch when it comes to video games.

Epic Games told Bleacher Report that more details on Neymar's inclusion in the game will be revealed over the coming months. There has been no word on whether using his skin will allow you to dive under bullets or occasionally leave you downed despite not being hit by any shots.
