Epic Games are giving Fortnite players an Afterparty wrap and Verve emote via the Party Royale mode, and we’ve got everything you need to know to redeem them both for free.

Party Royale has been a very well-received mode in Fortnite since being added back in May. Not only is it a safe space in which players can enjoy fun mini-games and live entertainment, but Epic are also giving away free cosmetic items to users for simply being there.


There are two items currently available for free, the first of which is a wrap called Afterparty, which features a black, light blue, pink and yellow color scheme in a leopard pattern design.

This wrap was released in celebration of Diplo’s upcoming final Party Royale show called Higher Ground, which will be 30-minutes long and take place on Friday, July 31 at 11 AM PT / 2 PM ET.

It must be pointed out that you don’t have to watch the Diplo show to earn this free cosmetic. The promotion will be available to everyone who’s in Party Royale at any point from Thursday, July 30 (8 PM ET/5 PM PT) to Saturday, August 1 (8 PM ET/5 PM PT).

The other cosmetic that players can unlock for free is the Verve emote, which is part of We The People x More Than A Vote – a “series of conversations that bring together a coalition of athletes and entertainers to inspire and empower young adults to take action against the voter suppression crisis that is disproportionately impacting Black communities.”

We The People is making its Party Royale debut on Tuesday, July 28 at 4 PM PT / 7 PM ET and will be re-aired every other hour for 22 hours into Wednesday, July 29.


It’s during this span that any player who attends an in-game showing will receive a free emote called Verve, which is modeled after a dance created by TikToker Michael Mejeh, who won Fortnite’s Emote Royale Contest.

In order to redeem this emote for free, all you have to do is simply log into Fortnite anytime from July 27 at 5 PM PT / 8 PM ET to July 29 at 5 PM PT / 8 PM ET and it’ll automatically be gifted to you.

The Fortnite Champion Series (FNCS) is back for Chapter 2 Season 4, with a return to the beloved Trios format that fans have been clamoring to see make a return. With the action kicking off on October 9, here’s everything you need to know to make sure you catch all of the action.

FNCS is making its return to trios in Season 4 for the first time since the inaugural Season X event. While it’s been a pretty poorly kept secret, there are some changes to the format from when it last appeared in August 2019.


With qualifiers now completed, we’re heading into the main stage of the FNCS Season 4 event, with a full month of competitive Fortnite on the way featuring some of the biggest names in the game competing for their cut of the prize money.

FNCS Season 4 format

FNCS Season 4 returns to the Trios format that has been used in the past, and is arguably the most popular competitive format in the tournament’s history, with past events filled with massive plays and huge battles that make for the ultimate Fortnite viewing experience.


As always, FNCS runs on a points-based scoring system, with your final placement in matches contributing to your overall score at the end of the weekend. Those who manage to win a game will receive 25 points as their reward, with the values decreasing incrementally down to 17th place, with anyone finishing below that scoring nothing. There are points for finding eliminations though, so players will be on the lookout for enemies to wipe out and add to their tally.

FNCS scoring system

  • Victory Royale: 25 Points
  • 2nd: 20 Points
  • 3rd: 16 Points
  • 4th: 14 Points
  • 5th: 13 Points
  • 6th: 12 Points
  • 7th: 11 Points
  • 8th: 10 Points
  • 9th: 9 Points
  • 10th: 8 Points
  • 11th: 7 Points
  • 12th: 6 Points
  • 13th: 5 Points
  • 14th 4 Points
  • 15th: 3 Points
  • 16th: 2 Points
  • 17th: 1 Point
  • Each Elimination: 1 Point

FNCS will be running in all the same regions it has been for the last few seasons: NA-West, NA-East, South American, EU, Middle East, Asia, and OCE, with the competition running on PC and consoles.


FNCS Season 4 will feature three weeks of qualifiers, with the top 15 teams from each week qualifying for the Grand Finals, who will be joined by the 87 teams with the highest cumulative points over the three qualifying rounds, with up to 132 teams competing in the Grand Finals on October 29.

As always, Epic Games will be hosting their own broadcast for the FNCS Season 4 events, complete with commentary and analysis to make sure you catch all the action as it happens. You can check out the official Fortnite FNCS stream on their official Twitch channel, which has been embedded below.


FNCS Season 4 dates

FNCS Season 4 will run across four weeks ⁠— three weeks of qualifiers, and one week for finals. If you want to sign yourself up, these are the dates you need to know.

  • FNCS Week 1: October 9 – October 11
  • FNCS Week 2: October 16 – October 18
  • FNCS Week 3: October 23 – October 25
  • FNCS Finals: October 29 – November 1

The first day of each week will be an open qualifier. If you make the top 33 teams, you’ll be invited to play in the next two days for a chance to make it to the Finals.


FNCS isn’t the only competition coming to Fortnite Season 4. Weekly Cash Cups for Solos and Trios will be returning, while the Dreamhack Online Open (Solo) will also take place across NA and Europe.

With players set to earn up to $111,000 for winning the whole tournament, you can rest assured that there will be plenty of action when the action kicks off.
