Latest - Cosmic Summer Event Has Begun

The Cosmic Summer Event has begun in Fortnite Season 7, so you can jump in to check it out.

It's not the party/live event that many people expect, but it's instead focused on challenges, Creative, and returning LTMs.

Believer Beach Has Disappeared

Shortly before the start of Fortnite's Cosmic Summer Event, and after the release of update 17.10, the Believer Beach area of the island disappeared due to a bug.

It should be back now, but it was funny to see for a little while.

Since that's where the Cosmic Summer Event is taking place, it'll need to actually be there for everything to work.

Start Time & Duration

The Fortnite Cosmic Summer Event began at 9am ET/2pm BST on June 22, so is live at the time you're reading this.

Again, since this isn't a live event in the usual sense, it's not a short ordeal. It will last for two full weeks, taking us to around the release of the 17.20 update.

Cosmic Summer Event Skins

A lot of new skins have been added to Fortnite following 17.10. Although not all of them are Cosmic Summer related, iFireMonkey has put together a great video showcasing all of the new cosmetics.
