Gamers soaking up the sun, who would have thought it? Well, sort of… Fortnite Cosmic Summer starts now.
Following a series of leaks and teasers, Epic Games has officially confirmed the Fortnite Cosmic Summer celebration. Rather than a concert or in-game event as some predicted, this will be a two-week party, with plenty of summer-themed goodness to sink your teeth into.
Cosmic Summer is live now, in the wake of the jaw-dropping v17.10 update. It will run until July 5, when the Fortnite dev team return from a well-earned break.
Earn cool rewards
Complete Cosmic Summer Quests to unlock some fresh swag for your locker. The Brain Freeze Back Bling is an ice pop with multiple colors to collect, and the Cloud Llama Board Glider also includes a bevy of alternative style options.
That’s not all, work through more Quests to net these bonus cosmetics:
Complete 2 Cosmic Summer Quests to earn the Believer Beach Loading Screen
Complete 6 Cosmic Summer Quests to earn the Icy Pop Wrap
Complete 12 Cosmic Summer Quests to earn the Lil’ Treat Emote
Some of these Quests will require you to play one of the exciting Creative LTMs. Fan-favorite modes like Bios Zone Wars Trio 1.0 – Custom Teams, Pro 100, Freaky Flights – Air Royale, and The Pit – FFA are set to return.
