Love is in the air for Fortnite in February, as a special Valentine’s Day event has been discovered in the game files following the v7.30 content update, with a new set of challenges.
Fortnite developers Epic Games have been upping the frequency of these ‘events’, which come with unique challenges and rewards, such as the recent Showtime event and the 12 Days of Christmas challenges too.
The Valentine’s Day event will presumably go live on Valentine’s Day (shocking), which of course is February 14. As part of the event, the ‘Love Ranger’ skin will be available in the item shop, according to the leak.
As with other temporary events, there is also a set of challenges. These challenges are ‘daily’, according to the files in the leak.
It appears that the daily challenges will reward players with items that compliment the main Dark Love Ranger skin.
These challenges will apparently increase each day, according to leaker, u/Shwubblz: “It is a challenge bundle. with different sets. 4 daily challenges, 5 then 6 then 7 – so maybe a themed pickaxe or back bling with the challenges.”
One of the rewards has also been discovered, a pretty basic banner.
The full list of challenges will be expected to drop on February 14, and could replace the weekly challenges for the end of season 7, which was extended until February 28. It’s likely data miners will get their hands on the challenges ahead of their official release though.
