Fortnite birthday celebration kicks off next week with free cosmetics, more

After server lag cut the first Summer Skirmish event short a week ago, Epic Games was back to host a highly-anticipated $500,000 Solo tournament today.

Whether or not your going after those challenges, you'll see plenty of birthday festivities in game, from a redecorated battle bus to StW's husks carrying treats around. Completing the challenges will get you certain cosmetic rewards in a similar fashion to the usual challenges that appear throughout each season. The second one will give them a happy birthday emote for dealing 1,000 damage.

Fortnite Battle Royale went live in late September 2017, but Fortnite as it was originally conceived-a base-building zombie defense game, kind of a mashup of Minecraft and Left 4 Dead-came out on July 25.

Starting next week on July 24, Fortnite will be receiving a new limited time in-game event that will allow players to receive birthday themed rewards by completing quests and challenges. You can also earn tickets and use them to purchase Birthday Llamas, which have a chance of dropping heroes and weapons from every event that's occurred throughout the previous year.

What do you love most about the Fortnite Birthday Celebration? It'll last three days, and the first challenge will award players with 5,000 experience points for playing through 14 matches.

Save the World players will also get some fun stuff, with a birthday questline that offers a Birthday Brigade Ramirez hero. Share your squad's best birthday cake dance party with #Fortnite1st on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook.

The wildly popular online game Fortnite has surpassed $1 billion in revenue, according to a new report from research firm SuperData.
