What is it that makes this game so immensely popular, and how did it come to be?

With the purchase of an outfit, players can choose a uniform modeled after any of the 32 NFL League Teams. Which team's jersey will you be sporting this Friday?

Aside from the NFL team outfits, "Fortnite" will add various other football-themed items, including special character "emotes" and harvesting tools.

Epic Games did not say how much all of the in-game accessories will cost.

Elsewhere, Epic Games also announced several changes it will soon bring to Fortnite.

Fortnite has changed the face of console gaming over the past year or so, with a whole generation of gamers now obsessed with the title. Speaking of which, don't forget that you can probably pair a Bluetooth-compatible Xbox One controller with your phone if they're both reasonably up to date.
