Fortnite Is Celebrating Its First Birthday With Free In-Game Cosmetic Items

They said, "Earlier this year we stopped charging a monthly service fee for GeForce NOW and closed down our game store".

Week 2 of the Fortnite Summer Skirmish Series saw a much different format than Week 1, as each of the competing players played 10 public matches. When the game came out in March, Epic Games had already announced that an Android version of the game would be coming out as well.

"We are so excited to be going on this journey with Epic Games". The Fortnite one-year anniversary celebration kicks off July 24. However, shortly after launch the Playground was closed, leading to complaints from players and pressure on Epic Games to fix the issue. But even beyond that, it could be a pretty consistent source of new, limited run releases - something that Funko loves to do. There are rumors that Epic Games could change certain aspects of the tournament to force players to be more competitive during matches, but nothing has been confirmed yet.
