Fortnite to hold a 14 Days of Summer Event

 

Much like the UK, Fortnite is to have fourteen days of Summer. Rather than each day involving people on Facebook complaining about it being far too hot and then moaning when it starts raining again, the Fortnite event will bring back weapons from the vault and new game modes.

In Battle Royale, each day will feature:

  • A weapon unvaulted for 24 hours only.
  • A new LTM to play (check out the full selection of LTMs that will debuting below).
  • A daily challenge and free reward.
  • New outfits and more in the Item Shop.

Save the World will also be updated with a new quest every day “to help Homebase host the hottest summer party around and score some summer freebies in the store.” I’m not sure what the British DIY store has to do with the game but I guess they will promote anything in Fortnite these days. You will need to complete all fourteen quests in this mode to unlock “a new explosive weapon.”

The fun starts tomorrow, June 25th, and will run until July 9th.

The fourteen Limited Time Modes that will be available have been detailed by Epic.
