Epic Games are giving Fortnite Battle Royale players the ochance to celebrate the game’s second birthday with some new challenges and great rewards.
Seasoned veterans of the popular battle royale title will know that the game has went through nine different seasons since it first launched in September 2017, with a plethora of different cosmetics being made available in that time – some purchasable and others granted as rewards.
Well, if you want to get your hands on a brand new pickaxe, weapon wrap, emoji and music pack, you’ve came to the right place.
The new birthday event is set to be officially confirmed by the game’s developer in due course, but has been revealed early by serial dataminer FortTory, who posted images of the challenges and rewards on July 17. Last year, the event was announced on July 20, so that might not be too far away.
