Jazwares, the new master toy partner for the hit video game franchise Fortnite has declared the title a “global movement” as it readies to launch an extensive new range.

The toy company has partnered with Epic Games to develop a new Fortnite branded collection that will feature true to game figures, Domez, loot boxes, play sets, environments, game-replica weapons and tools, plush vehicles and more.

It stated that the range will push the boundaries of traditional toys.

“We are thrilled to be part of the Fortnite experience,” said Judd Zebersky, CEO of Jazwares. “This is more than just an entertainment property with product; it’s a global movement.

“Our product line will push the boundaries of traditional toys, bringing the digital world to physical product unlike anything fans have ever seen. We are so excited to be going on this journey with Epic Games.”

Launching in December 2018, the collection will be available for purchase at retailers around the globe.

Mark Rein, vice president of Epic Games, added: “Jazwares have been so awesome to work with, and from the start have shown that they really understand the Fortnite universe and what makes it unique.

“They’re working on stuff right now that I think our players are really going to love. I can’t wait for them to see all of it later this year.”

Fortnite is Epic Games’ massive 100-player PVP Battle Royale title in which players can go head to head or team with friends in a co-op campaign to save the world from a horde of monsters.

They can craft and loot in giant worlds where no two games play out the same. Fortnite Battle Royale is free and available on PC, Mac, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, iOS and soon Android.
