Fortnite fans were already celebrating after the launch of Chapter 3: Season 4: Paradise, which added a new battle pass and many more features. Despite all that, Epic Games is giving fans an even bigger reason to celebrate. Fortnite, the battle royale that took the gaming world by storm thanks to its unique building mechanics and gameplay, turns five and a whole party is planned.
Fortnite’s 5th birthday celebration begins tomorrow, September 23rd at 9 a.m. ET, where players can also participate in in-game quests and out-game trivia events on social media. As every year, the island will be completely decorated with a party theme and a fantastic Fortography showcase.
Players can take a trip to the island in style with the birthday-themed Battle Bus. On the island itself, numerous gifts will be scattered around all POIs, which will contain high-quality loot and a birthday cake that can restore health. The event even returns balloons, allowing players to float around the map to get to their destination faster.
Additionally, the fifth birthday quests will be available until September 27th. On the Quests page, they can be found starting tomorrow and will reward players with cosmetics like Fuzzfetti Cake Back Bling, Celebratory Slice Pickaxe, and Sparklecake Emoticon upon completion.
Fortnite’s birthday photography event is a great way to get featured on the game’s official blog. This time the theme is simple – it could be players celebrating their birthday or a friend’s or just their favorite Fortnite memory from the last five years.
It can be a snapshot from the past or even one taken during this event. And for those with a creative flair, Epic Games also encourages players to build special birthday-themed islands on Creative and share them on social media. The winners will be featured in a blog post on October 7th.
