Fortnite celebrates its first birthday

As Fortnite hits its first birthday, developer Epic Games is celebrating with a limited time in-game event.

Running from now until August 7th, the event will give players the opportunity to unlock special birthday cosmetics by completing birthday challenges and quests.

A post outlining the event on the Epic Games website reads:

“Each challenge you complete will unlock a slice of the birthday cosmetic set. Share your squad’s best birthday cake dance party with #Fortnite1st on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook.

  • Deal 1,000 damage to opponents to unlock the Fortnite Birthday! Emoticon
  • Dance at different birthday cakes to unlock the Happy Birthday! Spray
  • Play 14 matches to unlock 5,000 XP.
  • Complete all 3 challenges to earn the Birthday Cake Back Bling

Complete the Fortnite Birthday questline in Save the World and earn the Birthday Brigade Ramirez Hero! Earn tickets to spend on Birthday Llamas which can contain Heroes and weapons from every event this year (not including quest rewards).

Jump in-game and join the celebration on July 24. Happy 1 year everyone!

-The Fortnite Team”
