Today makes it one year since Fortnite took over the gaming world with the Battle Royale mode. Today is all about celebration for Epic Games and today they also released a great patch to help commemorate this special day.
We have some big changes coming and even the loved Playground mode making its return and it also adds a compact SMG gun. he playground mode still works the way it did last time, except the spawn rate of nearly everything from bounce pads to ammo boxes has increased.
The most exciting additions are the ones related to Fortnite’s first birthday. When you log on, you should see a handful of new “birthday” challenges, one of which tasks players with dancing in front of birthday cakes on the map. For this, you’ll get a cake cosmetic set. The bus has also been decked out with streamers and balloons.
Epic Games also added a hidden easter egg hat commemorates a recent viral clip about a Fortnite rescue mission that goes horribly wrong.
Congrats to Epic Games on this big milestone to a game that changed the landscape of twitch and streaming, in general, the past year.
