Fortnite Summer Skirmish

Epic Games

July 24th marks the start of a new Fortnite event that gives players the chance to unlock special birthday-themed items by completing certain challenges. In-game purchases include player skins, new maps and custom vehicles etc.

Don't miss out on any of the action in the best multiplayer games on PC. Fortnite's latest content update (5.0) rolled out Tuesday and as with every new patch released by Epic Games.

By the end of 2018, SuperData Research predicts games with a battle royale mode will collectively earn 12 percent of all digital games revenue. It's hard to believe the game has already been out for a year but on July 24th, Fortnite will be 1 year old.

Whether or not your going after those challenges, you'll see plenty of birthday festivities in game, from a redecorated battle bus to StW's husks carrying treats around. Fortnite in particular is seeing massive numbers, more so than PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, which it surpassed in popularity several months ago.

While the success of Fortnite's in-app purchases are likely disheartening to anyone who wishes they would vanish entirely, it's worth noting that they are purely cosmetic in function. One of the main contributing factors in the game's fame is Twitch, the live-streaming platform. Many people are buying consoles just to be able to play Fortnite battle royal. In the game, an entirely optional $10 Battle Pass allows players to earn and collect in-game currency called V-bucks, which they can spend on costumes, accessories and dance moves for their playable character.

While FORTNITE: The Movie, hits numerous notes of the gaming phenomenon, it's important to know it is not related to a Fortnite television show that was rumored to be in the works.
