Hasbro has announced the launch of a new range of Fortnite blasters and has partnered with the team of esports, Team SoloMid (TSM), to promote it.
Although they will not wear their branded TSM jerseys in the promotion, the team of three competitive players – including "Myth", "Daequan" and "Hamlinz" – will be part of Hasbro's international commercial campaign. . TSM's "uncompetitive influencers" would also be involved and talk about "their best Fortin battle moments in real life".
According to The Esports Observer, TSM has negotiated directly with Hasbro, which has paid "sponsorship fees" to TSM under a separate agreement relating to the license agreement with the Epic publisher Fortnite Games.
