LeBron James, Naomi Osaka, Neymar, Harry Kane, Marco Reus, Chloe Kim, and now… Patrick Mahomes will be a playable character in Fortnite.
Mahomes was revealed as the latest entry in the Fortnite Icon Series on Monday.
The NFL and Super Bowl MVP also brings several new looks to the game, including a Mahomes Gladiator Mindset Style, a Gameday Gladiator Style, and a Mahomes Saucy Style Outfit featuring lots and lot of ketchup.
On August 23, Fortnite players will have the opportunity to earn special Patrick Mahomes gear, including a Secret Sauce Emoticon, by participating in the Patrick Mahomes Cup. Mahomes, his outfits and accessories will be available to everyone else in the Fortnite Item Shop starting on Wednesday.
The Kansas City Chiefs star quarterback’s Fortnite accessories include Gridiron Gladiator Back Bling, Good Stuff Back Bling (AKA a bottle of ketchup), Snap Axes Pickaxe (glows red when swung), Endzone Elite Wrap and a Showtime Emote.
Won’t go down for anything but history.
It’s time for Patrick Mahomes to step foot in Fortnite!

But not everyone…
“Who is that guy?” one person asked on Twitter. “No, really instead of putting on a skin for Messi or Cristiano, who are the most popular football players in the world, you make us this guy there? I’m not disrespecting this guy, but I’m just saying that preferably you should have put something else.”
