But if you don’t want to spend your V-Bucks, you will have an opportunity to take part in the Pelé Cup on January 20. Tournament participants will have a chance to win the «Air Punch» emote and the «Kickoff» pack! Here are the rules of the tournament:

There will also be a limited time mode in Creative, but unfortunately, Epic gave us only a very short description of the game mode:

Players will use their bodies, Pickaxes, power-ups, speed boosts and more to try to outscore their opponents and come out the winner in this 4v4 bracket style gamemode. Each game features two rounds, with the winners advancing to face off against and the other team battling for 3rd and 4th in the other match.

And that’s it for the upcoming collab. If you’re a fan of Pelé or football, this will be a great event for you.
