Epic Games Signs Deal With Hasbro For 'Fortnite' (ALL) Toys and Games

Fortnite invites players to team up as they build massive forts and battle against hordes of monsters, all while crafting and looting within giant worlds where no two games are ever the same.

In Fortnite, players and their friends lead a group of Heroes to reclaim and rebuild a homeland that has been left empty by a mysterious darkness only known as “the Storm.”

Players will band together online to explore the world for resources, build extravagant forts, find or build insane weapons and traps as they protect their towns from the strange monsters that emerge during the Storm.

Hasbro announced a partnership with Epic Games to introduce a range of Fortnite inspired play experiences, including a line of officially licensed NERF Fortnite blasters, and a Monopoly: Fortnite Edition Game.

The NERF Fortnite blasters will immerse fans into the player-versus-player action of the game, letting them play out the Battle Royale in real world settings with blasters and accessories that emulate the amazing onscreen battles Fortnite is known for, and Monopoly Fortnite will bring a battle building twist to the iconic Fast Dealing Property Trading game.

The Monopoly: Fortnite Edition game will debut at most major retailers in the U.S. and the U.K. this Fall, with additional markets to follow in 2019. The battle continues to build with an epic line up of additional licensed games, role play and NERF Fortnite blasters and accessories debuting in 2019.

“Fortnite has quickly become a cultural phenomenon with legions of players worldwide, many of whom are already searching for NERF blasters to host their own Fortnite battles,” said Jonathan Berkowitz, president, Hasbro Brands. “Through our collaboration with Epic Games, fans will now have the ability to experience the Battle Royale in all new ways, whether it’s the active and adventurous fun of a NERF Fortnite blaster battle or the exciting strategizing of playing Monopoly Fortnite with friends.”

“Hasbro is well-known for bringing iconic brands to life, and we’re honored to collaborate on an awesome lineup that delivers on the fun of Fornite,” said Epic Games co-founder Mark Rein. “NERF blasters are truly the best way to reenact Fortnite battles outside of the game, and we can’t wait to see our fans create Fortnite stories all of their own with the iconic accessories seen in the game, or by bringing the battle offscreen with Monopoly.”

Fortnite Battle Royale is free and available on PC, Mac, PS4, Xbox One, Switch, iOS, and Android.
