Fortnite: 14 Days Of Summer Event Now Live, Features New Challenges And LTMs
Sun's out, guns out.
Summer is here, and Fortnite is celebrating the season with a new multi-week event called 14 Days of Summer. The event is now live on PS4, Xbox One, PC, Nintendo Switch, and mobile devices following the game's first 9.30 content update, and it's bringing a load of new things to see and do in Fortnite's Battle Royale, Creative, and Save the World modes. That includes new daily challenges to complete, such as dancing at six beach parties and bouncing a giant beach ball.
On the Battle Royale front, developer Epic will unvault one weapon for only 24 hours every day during the 14 Days of Summer event, giving you a chance to play around with some of the items that have been removed from the game. The latest unvaulted weapon is the Burst Assault Rifle. As previously mentioned, there will also be new challenges to complete and rewards to unlock each day of the event, as well as new outfits and other items to purchase from the in-game shop.
Finally, Battle Royale players will be able to jump into a new limited-time mode every day during 14 Days of Summer. Epic hasn't yet revealed the order these modes will arrive, but it has given fans an overview of all 14 LTMs on the Fortnite website, and they include the John Wick crossover, Wick's Bounty, as well as a handful of new modes, such as the summer-themed Splashdown Squads--in which players will try to eliminate opponents with a new water balloon item--and Storm Chasers Surfin' Squads.
In Save the World mode, meanwhile, players will be able to complete new quests every day during the 14 Days of Fortnite event. Clearing these quests will earn you Summer Tickets, and if you mange to complete all 14 before the event ends, you'll unlock a "new explosive weapon." Fortnite Creative will also feature a new island every day during the event.
There are still a few weeks left in Season 9 of Fortnite, but Epic has already announced it is making some changes for next season. Specifically, Fortnite's minimum requirements on PC will change beginning in Season 10. In the meantime, you still have a few weeks left to complete any remaining challenges from this season. If you need help, you can find tips and guides for all the trickier tasks in our complete Fortnite Season 9 challenges roundup.
