Rubie’s Masquerade has secured a new partnership with Epic Games to create a range of Fortnite dress up items for the European market.

The deal - brokered by the licensing agent IMG - will see Rubie’s add a new line up of Fortnite branded costumes, masks and accessories to its IP portfolio.

“We are absolutely thrilled to be part of the Fortnite phenomenon. Fans will soon be able to replicate their favourite Fortnite characters as they prepare for epic battles in our officially licensed costumes and accessories,” said Tania Hrycko, licensing manager, EMEA, Rubie’s Masquerade.

“We will be launching with some of the most sought-after character costumes and accessories for tweens and adults alike and will continue to strengthen our range alongside the ever-evolving skins from Epic. We are so excited to be part of this journey with Epic Games.”

Launching this autumn/winter, the range will be available to purchase from a variety of online retailers.

“A big part of Fortnite is letting players express themselves in the game,” said Mark Rein, Epic Games’ co-founder.

“We are thrilled to be partnering with Rubie’s to bring them high-quality costumes and accessories so they can express themselves outside of the game too.”
