Fortnite is hosting a special event to celebrate its first birthday – here’s how you can get involved

It’s one of the most popular games in the world, but amazingly Fortnite has only been around for a year.

To celebrate Fortnite’s first birthday, Epic Games is hosting a limited time in-game event, starting today and lasting until August 7.

In a blog about the event, a spokesperson for Fortnite said: “You can earn special birthday cosmetics by completing birthday challenges and quests in-game.

“From the birthday Battle Bus to the sploder husks carrying a tasty surprise, we can’t wait to party with you! The in-game celebration lasts until August 7!”

The birthday event is made up of three challenges – each of which will unlock a slice of birthday cake

The birthday event is made up of three challenges – each of which will unlock a slice of birthday cake.

The first challenge is to unlock the Fortnite Birthday! Emoticon, which can be achieved by dealing 1,000 damages to opponents.

Next, players must dance at different birthday cakes to unlock the Happy Birthday! Spray.

So far, these are the locations where users have found the birthday cakes:

– On the golf course South East of Lazy Links

– On one of the small hilltops West of Wailing Woods

– Behind the gas station at Pleasant Park

– In the centre of Fatal Fields

– On the grassy hill south of Risky Reels

The blog added: “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).”

Happy 1st birthday, Fortnite!
