Harry Kane will become available to buy in Fortnite this weekend, just as the Euros kick off.

German player Marco Reus is also joining Epic's beautiful game, and the two will come with the usual array of emotes and back blings.

Harry Kane has an emote named "HurriKane". That's some top punning there.
