A huge Neymar Jr update is coming to Fortnite

Better yet, there’s even a chance to win a real custom football boot inspired by Neymar Jr’s “primal form” in-game.

The Neymar Jr quests are available as part of the Chapter 2 Season 6 Battle Pass.

That’s live from April 27 with the new Fortnite v16.30 update.

There are loads of quests available, including:

  • Talk to an Island soccer player
  • Complete three quests from Island soccer players
  • Complete five quests from Island soccer players
  • Dropkick the soccer ball toy 500 metres as Neymar Jr
  • Eliminate three opponents as Neymar Jr
You’ll need to complete quests to unlock the best new gear

But wait, there’s more: Fortnite has also added rewards for Season 6 Epic Quests.

Completing those will let you unlock the Exhibition version of the Neymar Jr outfit.

You’ll also get other items, based on his yellow, blue and green strip.

The rewards obtainable include:

  • I’m ready! spray
  • Stealth Shot emoticon
  • Hang Loose Celebration Emote
  • Aerial Acrobat Glier
  • Exhibition Style of Neymar Jr outfit, Jaguar Strike pickaxe and Aerial Acrobat Glider

Fortnite Creative is being taken over by Neymar Jr and Puma between April 27 and May 4.

“During this time, check out the Paris-themed Welcome Hub made by community creators Kryw and Iscariote,” Epic Games explained.

“After unlocking the soccer ball from the first Neymar Jr Quest, bring it with you to this Hub’s soccer field!

“Additionally, when you’re ready to get into the action, you can queue up for the “Go Crazy Arena” playlist made by community creators Madmoods and Immature.

“This casual combat experience, made in celebration of Neymar Jr’s arrival, will be featured as a playlist from April 27 at 9 AM ET to April 30 at 9 AM ET.”

Finally, there’s a Neymar Jr Cup on April 28.

This gives you a chance to win a custom-designed soccer boot inspired by Neymar Jr’s primal form – Exhibition.

A special Neymar Jr cup gives you the chance to win even more prizes

The top player in each region in this Solo tournament will receive the prize.

You can also win the Spinner Takes All emoticon as part of the tournament.

Gamers can play up to 10 matches during your region’s three-hour time slot.

You can find your area’s timing in the Compete tab in-game.

Competing players will need to have Two-Factor Authentication enabled on their Epic Account.

And they’ll need to have an account level of at least 30 or higher.

 The new Neymar update is live from Tuesday, April 27.
