Fortnite announces Valentine's Day event

Fortnite announces Valentine's Day event

Valentine's Day is fast approaching, and many fans of Fortnite are wondering just how the massively popular game will celebrate the romantic day. The event will include special rewards and challenges for players over the next few weeks.

Perhaps because my significant other walked out of the room when I asked her to spend Valentine's Day with me in Fortnite making a very large and powerful rendition of Shaggy out of van-sized bricks, Epic has announced the Share the Love event. You can sign up in your item shop, you can't miss the giant button.

This set of skins will be available to any players who now support a Creator or choose to enter a Creator Code between February 8 and February 22. We have you covered! Don't sweat it, Epic is keeping tracking of things, so you'll receive your goody pack as soon as the update releases. Starting with the v7.40 release, all players will have access to new, additional Overtime Challenges.

Complete these new challenges by the end of Season 7 (expected to finish on 28 February) to unlock five new rewards including the Valentine Wrap and Vines Contrail.

Epic's also hosting two double XP weekends: February 15 to 17 and 22 to 24. More than enough time to make that big boy on my own.

And for Battle Pass owners, the Overtime Challenge rewards will include new unlockable styles for the Trog, Powder, and Onesie outfits.

The developers will also be featuring a rotating set of islands created by the community in Fortnite Creative - the "Featured Island Frenzy" will start on 12 February, and ends on 22 February.

How do you feel about the Feel the Love event?

New Valetine Wraps are coming to Fortnite.

A new "Share the Love" competitive series will be starting, with placement on February 9 and 10.

New features will be a part of this event, so get used to seeing insane items and dealing with them.

Earning a pin in any daily play time will move you up a tier. If players manage to earn a pin during the Champion Division, then they will unlock access to the finals, which are set to take place on February 23 and 24.
