The new Neymar Jr Fortnite skin has officially released in-game. Here's how to get it.

Neymar da Silva Santos Júnior, a professional Brazilian soccer player and long-time Fortnite fan, officially has some skin in the game—two, to be exact. Each bears a color scheme inspired by one of the teams Neymar Jr. is known to play for: the Paris Saint-Germain and the Brazilian national team.

Epic Games took to Fortnite's Twitter account to announce the launch date a few days before it's set to go live on Tuesday, April 27. As with any special cosmetic, players will need to complete a few challenges to unlock it for use in their game locker.

To unlock Neymar Jr.'s skin, players will need to find and accept five quests from soccer players taking up residence on Fortnite Island. Even better, every few quests completed unlocks a new related cosmetic from emotes to banners and, eventually, the skin. One quest rewards the Soccer Ball Emote and Neymar Jr. Banner, three quests gives the Matador Loading Screen, and all five gift the skin.

There are a handful of extra quests to be done once players obtain the skin, as well. The majority require players to be wearing the skin and, while they don't offer other exclusive rewards, they do give a decent amount of experience.

Additionally, players who have the battle pass for this season can complete Epic Quests for other parts of the Neymar "set." These include the Exhibition color variant skin, Jaguar Strike Pickaxe, Aerial Acrobat Glider, Hang Loose emote, I'm Ready! spray, and Stealth Shot emoticon.
