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. 

In the meantime, check out the full list of tasks that players will have to complete, as well as what they’ll pick up once they’re completed.

Whether or not this new unlockable pack will be announced or not in the near future remains to be seen, but the source of the leak has been pretty accurate in the past. 

It’s highly likely that a new event will be revealed before the end of July and if things are eventually made official, we’ll be sure to keep you posted. No doubt some players will want to have their cake and eat it by the time Season 9 comes to a close. 


Did The Rock just tease he’s getting a Fortnite skin?

After an appearance by a very cartoony-looking float during the Macy’s Thanksgivings Day Parade, The Rock hinted that he may end up getting a skin in the popular battle royale game Fortnite, although he’s being a bit vague. 

The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade floats are known their pop culture references. Between Pikachu, Goku, and others making appearances, it shouldn’t really come as a surprise that one based on the popular young Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson meme a few years back would make its way into the 2020 version of the parade.

Seemingly because it’s a float, the giant balloon itself seems to be a cartoon representation of the meme, rather than a hyper-realistic one. After one person seemed to point out that it looks a bit like a Fortnite skin, the former wrestler now actor responded in a way that’s raising a few eyebrows.

In response to the comment about his float looking like a Fortnite character, The Rock simply responded with “way ahead of you” and “great minds”. This obviously caused a few people to pause and ask themselves if he just hinted at a Fortnite skin.

Unfortunately, we don’t have any official comment from Epic but the comment is certainly suspicious. While one could make the argument that The Rock was saying that he also had the same thought before the original tweeter, the wink face emoji seen after the tweet is a bit peculiar. Surely he would know not to put that kind of statement out with that emoji unless he meant to hint at it, right?

It’s also a bit odd that he also responded to someone who tweeted that they “shouldn’t give them any ideas”, meaning he could have been totally knowledgable in what he’s doing.

His inclusion in the game also wouldn’t be surprising. Fortnite is known for its crossovers at this point, even allowing for some Icon Series skins based on celebrities like Ninja and others. It could also be a part of a larger WWE crossover, considering there’s a plethora of characters there to make skins out of.

Still, until nothing official is announced, take this with a massive grain of salt. Here’s hoping that if it is real that it will get announced soon, however.
