The 2nd half of Fortnite x NBA: The Crossover arrives on May 25, 2021 in Fortnite Creative with an all-new NBA-themed Welcome Hub.

NBA Welcome Hub

This hoops-inspired haven, built by Atlas Creative, brings the NBA to Fortnite Creative. As you explore the Welcome Hub, you’ll find a wide array of basketball-themed areas to explore and you can view and purchase the new NBA Outfits directly from the Welcome Hub!
