On Wednesday, February 16, 2022, the NBA 75 All-Star event kicked off in Fortnite Battle Royale in celebration of the NBA's 75th anniversary. This event brings new NBA skins to the game, as well as a new hub for NBA-themed Creative Mode where we can complete challenges and missions to get free rewards. We tell you everything you need to know about this new Fortnite Season 1 Chapter 3 event just below:
New Fortnite creative hub: NBA 75 All-Star
For the first time in Fortnite, players will be able to vote in the game to choose an emote. From February 16 at 10:00 am ET until February 23, 2022, at 10 am ET, we will be able to tour the NBA 75th All-Star hub and its various facilities, such as indoor and outdoor basketball courts, photo booths or areas to relax. The outdoor area is a section of the "NBA Lane," a reference to this season's 75th anniversary celebration campaign.
In the "Vote to Emote" screen that is in the NBA Track is the place where we will be able to decide which NBA celebration we want to arrive as an emote to the store soon. To enter NBA 75 All-Star creative central, simply launch the Creative Mode.
NBA 75 All-Star Missions in Fortnite
What these three different missions ask us to do is to enter Fortnite's Creative Mode, and, once here, score baskets with our character. Throughout the stage there are a total of 30 baskets and garbage cans (they are recognizable). By collecting balls and scoring baskets in at least 27 of them we will get all the rewards (36,000 XP and the High Hoops Spray).
New NBA skins come to Fortnite
On the occasion of this event, new NBA skins have arrived in Fortnite; it is the NBA 75 set. You can find all these items in the ???? section of the store:
