It looks like Riot Games and Epic Games are partnering up as Jinx from Riot’s hugely popular MOBA League of Legends is coming to Fortnite. This is the first time a character from one of Riot’s properties has ever appeared in a game outside of their own titles, and marks an explosive start to a wider collaborative effort between the two studios.
The character skin, alongside a range of other thematically appropriate items such as a custom Jinx pickaxe, spray, back bling, and loading screens come out today at 8PM EST / 5PM PST / Midnight GMT. This comes only days before Arcane – Riot’s animated show – lands on Netflix, and marks the latest event in a wider push to promote the series.
In addition to Jinx’s inclusion in Fortnite, we’re seeing a wider collaboration between both studios, as a vast majority of Riot’s games including League of Legends, Teamfight Tactics, Legends of Runeterra, and Valorant are coming to the Epic Games to the Epic Games Store.
