"Fortnite" Commemorates Its First Birthday With Celebratory Update

Share

Fortnite is available now in early access on iOS, PC, PS4, Switch, and Xbox One. And, as you'd expect, Epic Games has prepared an in-game birthday event, with challenges that you have to complete for XP, Sprays, Emoticons, and Back Bling.

"They'll arrive when the Store refreshes at 8pm Eastern Time (0000 GMT)".

Deal 1,000 damage to opponents to unlock the Fortnite Birthday!

Epic Games has announced that the fan favorite Playground Limited Time Mode or LTM will be returning to Fortnite this week on July 25th.

The birthday celebration includes birthday cakes placed around the map with consumable slices next to them.

The Battlebus and Supply Drops have been decorated to celebrate #Fortnite1st. It's a cartoonish, last-character-standing, fight-to-the-death battle royale where players thrash one another in a struggle for weapons, resources and survival on a shrinking, storm-ravaged island.

As for Save the World itself, it's an incredibly dense and overstuffed game that you have to dig deep into to get anything out of.

Birthday Llamas have also been unleashed, which can contain Heroes and weapons from every event this year (not including quest rewards). Back in March, Epic confirmed that Founder's Pack owners would also get some new skins, although a date hadn't been set at that time. Thankfully, each of the challenges are fairly easy, though one of them will require you to spend a little bit of time running around the map and getting your dance on.

It should be noted that while most of the seven newly leaked challenges will likely remain the same, some might change before Thursday.

The building nerfs have caught the attention of more than a few players so far with some lamenting the fact that building structures to defend yourself seems like a less viable strategy after the nerfs. We're not sure how dancing constitutes a challenge in this instance, but there you have it.
