The Paris Saint-Germain star had already teased his arrival in the popular battle royale game a few days ago, but the official confirmation came with the launch of Fortnite Season 6, with banners in the game's menu.

The Terminator, Batman, and even Lara Croft (Tomb Raider) have all featured in Fortnite, but fans of the Brazilian footballer will not be able to play as Neymar just yet - no matter how far they move through the ranks on the Battle Pass.

Neymar will be a midseason unlockable character in the game - similar to the likes of Wolverine and Predator from previous seasons.

The advertising in-game confirmed that Neymar will only become available around 27 April, but you can preview what accessories the footballer comes with.

In the Battle Pass tab, there is a '?' page that shows six rewards for Neymar. However, you cannot see what they look like just yet - but it indicates that fans will be able to get a loading screen, two banners, an outfit, a harvesting tool, and an extra style option.
