Fortnite Turns Two! What Fortnite’s Birthday Bash means for Battle Royale

Fortnite Birthday Bash

Fortnite is now officially two years old and it is hard to overstate how much the gaming world has changed in those two short years following the release of the sprawling battle royale shooter. Epic is celebrating in a big way with special drops, birthday cakes and presents. The event starts Thursday, July 25th and wraps up on Wednesday, July 31st — just before the start of Season 10.

What to Expect

The Battle Bus is decorated in a birthday theme with a special music track. Say happy birthday to the bus driver before you drop!

Special Birthday Bash supply drops will appear as large Birthday Packages! We don’t yet know if these will be giant packages similar to last Christmas, but they are rumored to have blue wrapping paper.

Birthday Bash Challenges will let players unlock a pickaxe, custom wraps and other cosmetics during the event. Leaker @Lucas7Yoshi has given us an early look at what to expect:
