Epic Games have released information on Fortnite Battle Royale’s 4th Birthday Party including the release date and free cosmetics rewards players can get their hands on.
We’re more than a week into the new season and we have our first content update of the season. We have the Armored Walls item make it’s way into the game today along with players being able to vote which item makes it’s way back from the vault.
In the blog post announcing the update, Epic Games also provided information on the upcoming Fortnite 4th Birthday event. Here’s everything you need to know about the event including the free rewards players can get as well as the start date.
When is Fortnite’s Birthday (fourth Birthday)
Fortnite’s birthday is on the 27th September. However, the fourth Fortnite birthday event will begin on September 24th at 9 AM ET and will end four days later on September 28th at 2 AM ET.
Fortnite Birthday 2021 Challenges & Rewards
We’ve always had challenges to complete during these events and the 2021 Fortnite Birthday event is no different. The blog post didn’t mention what the challenges are, but we know what they are thanks to data-miners leaking them from the new files added at the start of the season.
Epic did however list the free cosmetic rewards that can be unlocked during the event which we’ve listed below:
- 4 Me??? Back Bling
- Hooplah Hammer Pickaxe
- 4? Score! Emoticon!
We’ll also be getting the usual birthday cake slices and presents around the map. We’re guessing presents will be added as an item again that can be found around the map as floor loot or from chests. These presents provide players with shields, and a Epic of better item. The Cake Slices provide health and shield to players and are usually found in every major POI.
We’ll be releasing guides for the birthday quests once they go live in three days time. Be sure to check back on September 24th for a guide on how to complete each quest.
