"Fortnite" Commemorates Its First Birthday With Celebratory Update

Fortnite Playground Mode V2 is coming out later this week Fortnite Playground Mode V2 is coming out later this week

A quick way to level up is by doing the weekly challenges which grant a good chunk of experience to players in comparison to a standard fight to the death in the game. But the third challenge is a little more unorthodox: You'll need to dance in front of 10 birthday cakes scattered around the island.

The latest update includes the addition of a series of challenges which, if completed, allow players to unlock new cosmetic items in game. There is also cake scattered around the world in both Save the World and Battle Royale mode, which is a consumable that gives the player +5 health and +5 shield. The practice mode was removed for maintenance a few weeks back, but now, gamers will be able to dive back into the popular mode.

NEW Fortnite 5.10 patch notes have arrived this morning as part of the games new content update for the game.

On top of that, the game's Save the World mode is getting a special birthday questline that unlocks the Birthday Brigade Ramirez Hero when you complete it.

Based on how things have been done in the past, it seems likely that the Playground will be back in the late morning, United Kingdom time. And among several other minor changes, rocket launchers get a max ammo of 60, so those tougher constructs may not last very long.

In order to celebrate Fortnite's first anniversary, Epic Games is giving players the chance to grab the World Founder's Packs at 50% off until July 30.

As Epic teased yesterday, the new Playground update adds additional team options, namely the ability to switch teams while in a game.

The Compact SMG joins the game as the newest weapon, following up on the recently added Submachine Gun and Drum Gun. Loot drop rates have also been increased nearly across the board, so you'll have more chances to find the guns and items you want. The company has also decreased bandages while increasing Slurp Juice and Chug Jug spawns and adding Chug Jugs to the floor loot.
