Fortnite Season 8 has just started and there's a lot to look forward to. Toona Fish - a customisable skin - is here alongside Marvel Comics' Carnage. There's also a new Victory Umbrella for you to get if you can tackle the new Season 8 map! One thing we don't know too much about, however - despite the fact we know it's coming - is the Fortnite 4th Birthday celebrations and events. Here's everything we know about it so far and what to expect.
Update - Fortnite Birthday Celebrations this week!
The 4th Birthday celebrations begin on Friday, 24 September! Below you can see some of the cosmetics that will be coming to the game as part of the celebrations.
START DATE - When do celebrations begin?
Although Fortnite was technically launched in July 2017, we're under the impression that the Fortnite 4th Birthday celebrations will take place in late September.
September 26th is a date a lot of people are throwing around online and it seems accurate - as this was the date of Fortnite's 3rd Birthday celebration event. However, we'd advise you to take it with a pinch of salt until everything is confirmed by Epic Games.
If they follow the same formula as last year, expect a series of easy Challenges to be added to the game alongside a new Birthday Battle Bus appearance. It isn't going to change the game dramatically, but it'll be something to take your mind off of all the Cubes.
LEAKED COSMETICS - Of course, there's cake!
We don't know exactly what to expect just yet - even though we're under the impression that celebrations are going to be quite similar to last year's celebrations - however, we do have some leaked cosmetic items to talk to you about!
Luwani, a Fortnite data miner and leaker, has shared a new look at a Harvesting Tool - Pickaxe - and a Back Bling that should be available during the Fortnite 4th Birthday celebrations.
They're cake-related, as you can see below:
It also looks like there's going to be an Emote, but we don't have any visual footage or imagery of that just yet. We do have a look at a Spray, though - we all love a Spray, right?
Expect to see more in the coming weeks, ahead of the Fortnite 4th Birthday celebrations.
