Fortnite's one-year anniversary to be celebrated with in-game events


If you complete every single one of the challenges, you'll unlock a birthday cake bake bling for your trouble.

Jump in-game and join the celebration on July 24.

We're sure there will be some birthday-themed skins and cosmetics that appear in the store as well, but if that's the plan, they haven't been detailed yet.

Season 5 of Fortnite gives players plenty of new locations to explore, new weapons to master, and new challenges to undertake.

It's pretty incredible when you think about the amount of dollars Epic Games has generated from Fortnite, given that the game is free to download and play.

The glitch was only recently discovered today, so it's likely that Epic Games won't be able to fix it for a good while, unless they think it's amusing enough that it would be better to just leave it in. If, due to some odd quirk of fate, you haven't yet encountered Fortnite, check its website out here.
