Epic Games have announced an event for Fortnite’s second birthday, which will begin on Thursday, 25th July.
Last year, Epic created an in-game event for Fortnite’s 1st birthday, which included a few challenges along with rewards for completing the challenges. There were also a few cosmetic changes to the map including decorations and birthday cakes. The Battle Bus design and music was also changed for the occasion.
In last week’s v9.40 update, dataminers leaked a bunch of new content that would be coming to the game including the event for Fortnite’s second birthday. The leaks confirmed Epic will be releasing challenges, which upon completion will reward players with cosmetic rewards including a pickaxe, wrap emoji and music pack.
The event will take place on Thursday, July 25th and will end on Wednesday, July 31st. The challenges for the event have already been leaked by data-miners and can be seen below:
