Fortnite Birthday Event Countdown: Start Date, Challenges, Rewards and More

Everything you need to know about Fortnite's big day.

Fortnite is set to turn 3 this year and so Epic plan to celebrate with a ton of awesome events, cosmetics and challenges.

While Epic is keeping its cards close to its chest, here’s what we know so far as we countdown to Fortnite’s 3rd Birthday!

Release Date

The Birthday event will start on 24th / 25th July 2020, as highlighted in RealSport.

Last year’s event kicked off on July 25 and ran until July 31.

Rewards and Challenges

It’s hard to say what Epic has in store for us, but let’s take a look at what they did last year for clues.

They wrote on their website at the time: “We’re celebrating all over the Battle Royale map with present supply drops, birthday cakes and a gift item you’ll be able to toss to your squad.

“The Battle Bus will have a music track and be thematically skinned just in time for the party. Additionally, you’ll have the opportunity to earn a Pickaxe, Wrap and more cosmetics over the course of the celebration.

“The Birthday Event is already live in Save the World! Complete Birthday Celebration Quests to earn Summer Tickets and unlock the new festive Hero: Birthday Brigade Jonesy.

“Don’t forget to grab Year 2 Birthday Llamas as they are filled with the “greatest hits” schematics from the past year of Fortnite.”

Players also got a free Year 1 Birthday Llama... On Epic! So we can expect to see something like this heading our way this weekend.

Of course, there were a load of OverTime challenges in the run-up to this, too.

We’ll have to wait and see – but keep it locked on Gfinity to find out more.
