Epic Games has announced this years alternative to the 14 days of summer event.
Last year, Epic introduced the 14 days of summer event. During the event, there was a daily Fortnite challenge for players to complete and a cosmetic reward for each completed challenge.
Weapons and items were also unvaulted each day for 24 hours along with a fresh rotation of both new and old LTMs. Although there’s not going to be a 14 days of summer Fortnite event, Epic have announced a different event for summer 2020 called Fortnite Summer Splash 2020.
Fortnite Summer Splash 2020
Epic Games updated the news feed on the Nintendo Switch to announce the Summer Splash Fortnite event. However, as of writing, there’s been no update to the pc or console news feed with any information on the event.
Summer Splash will be similar to the 14 days of summer event, however, it appears as though there’ll be no daily challenge for players to complete and no rewards to earn. From the news feed information, it also appears as though there’ll be no old weapons and items being unvaulted for the day.
There will be a daily rotation of both classic LTMs as well as new ones. Some of the classic LTMs that’ll be available during Summer Splash include Fog of War (Sneaky Silencers), Close Encounters, Unvaulted, Catch!, and more. Some of these classic LTMs will have some new features since they were last available to play.
New Fortnite Summer skins and the return of Summer Drift and Beach Bomber
Similar to the 14 days of summer event last year, there’ll be new and old summer-themed Fortnite skins and other cosmetics hitting the Fortnite Item Shop each day. In today’s v13.20 update, data-miners leaked a number of different summer-themed skins including Dad Bod Jonesy, and you can take a look at the full set of skins leaked today over here.
The announcement also mentions the return of the Summer Drift and Beach Bomber skins, but there’ll be a bunch…
