Epic Games

We might already have a bunch of soccer skins already available in Fortnite, but Epic Games is on the verge of adding a whole lot more, and even immortalizing a FIFA icon in the process.

Pele will be getting his own emote in the called, officially called the Air Punch, and you’ll be able to get your hands on it by purchasing it in the Item Shop, but if you want to go an alternative route, you can actually get it for free.

As is the case with many of these special events that bring new skins or emotes into the game, there’s a free option available.

That’s no different here because by placing high in the Pele Cup, you can win both the emote and the set of soccer skins completely for free.

Here’s what you need to know.

The cup kicks off on January 20, so you’ll need to check your in-game tournaments tab for the exact starting time in your region.

This will be a Solo tournament, so you won’t have to worry about getting a team together for this one, but it does mean you’ll need to perform at the best of your abilities.

On top of winning the cosmetics for free, some players will even have a chance to a signed jersey.
