In just a few days (24th July, to be exact), global phenomenon Fortnite is celebrating its first birthday. Considering you can barely turn a computer on or look at your phone for five seconds without seeing the game pop up on your news feeds, it's pretty surprising that it's only been around for a year, but we're about to get some free goodies so we're not complaining.

To celebrate the occasion, in-game challenges will start to appear on that special day. Completing the challenges will get you certain cosmetic rewards in a similar fashion to the usual challenges that appear throughout each season.

  • Deal 1,000 damage to opponents to unlock the Fortnite Birthday! Emoticon
  • Dance at different birthday cakes to unlock the Happy Birthday! Spray
  • Play 14 matches to unlock 5,000 XP.
  • Complete all 3 challenges to earn the Birthday Cake Back Bling

If you're a fan of the game, make sure to jump into the fun next Tuesday. It seems like the famous Battle Bus might be getting a birthday makeover for the event, too.

Will you be celebrating with a few games next Tuesday? Let us know with a comment below.
