Nike has an exciting new collaboration with Fortnite and has released its very own UEFN-designed map, skins, challenges, and much more. Here is everything we know about the Nike X Fortnite collaboration. 

Nike and Fortnite have been long-time collaborators, coming out with exciting new updates over the years. Whether it’s Nike’s collab with Giannis Antetokounmpo or Travis Scott’s Air Jordan in the third-person shooter game, both companies have always managed to impress, and it seems like they’re all set to do it one more time. 

The air is buzzing with a brand-new collab between Nike and Fortnite that just dropped with the recently released v25.10 update for Chapter 4 season 3 of the game. Under its new partnership, the popular apparel brand is bringing more than a floating island to the table with unique skins, challenges, and much more on the way. Here’s everything you can expect from the Nike x Fortnite collab. 

Nike X Fortnite release date

The Nike x Fortnite collab was rolled out following the v25.10 update on Tuesday, June 20, for Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 3. The game was taken offline at the aforementioned time for the update with matchmaking disabled and was made available again at 7AM ET / 4 AM PT / 12 PM BST.

The update features a brand-new UEFN-designed map called Airphoria. Up in the clouds, the city features the best of sneakerhead culture, along with exciting new stomping grounds.

There is “Museum Max,” “Station 97,” and “Museum Wax.” Players will have to explore the city and hunt down missing Air Max Grails, while escaping the recently added drone-shaped villain, Maxxed Out Max. There are five Grails in total scattered across the cloud city. To make things even sweeter, anyone who plays on the map for more than 10 minutes can bag themselves the Air Max 1 ’86 Back Bling on June 28.

The island will be available until June 27, 2023, at 5 PM PT / 8 PM ET / 1 AM BST (June 28).
