Not long after adding Ninja's skin to Fortnite's repertoire, Epic Games are pressing on with their efforts to involve the community with their battle royale giant. This time, it's all about emotes, and you could get your own to be featured in-game.
Ninja's skin was up there for the taking until yesterday if we recall correctly, but as things stand - there are many more creator skins to come. As for the emote contest, Epic will be involving more than just popular streamers this time.
"How’s it work? Take a video of yourself breaking into an original dance move, then share your submission on TikTok using the hashtag #EmoteRoyaleContest", Epic wrote. You can check out the examples from Pokimane and Jordan Fisher if you want to roughly see how it's done, as theirs were already added to Fortnite.
There's more, because the winner gets 25,000 V-Bucks and a Fortnite VIP giveaway package, just in case your likeness isn't satisfactory enough.
Fortnite's Emote Royale Contest runs until 24 January at 11:59pm PST. Entrants must be at least 13 years old and use the pre-selected Fortnite tracks that you can download here .
All the entries must not be longer than 15 seconds, which is actually quite long for Fortnite emote standards, and naturally - you need to polish those dance moves just right. It really shouldn't be said, but your dance should be original and you can count on Epic making doubly sure it is.
As you're probably well aware by now, Epic have had a number of dance copyright lawsuits, and even though they've all been promptly shot down by the legal system, we're confident they're not keen on opening up another can of worms on the account of Fortnite players.
