It looks like we’ll be getting another Fortnite birthday event with the challenges and rewards leaked by dataminers from today’s v9.40 update.
Last year on the 20th July, Epic announced the Fortnite 1st birthday celebration event in a post. The post outlined the event and what it would include as well as the start date. The 1st birthday event included challenges and cosmetic rewards as well as the battle bus being redesigned for the event.
