Cosmic Summer Celebration Event

What Is The Cosmic Summer Celebration Event?

Fortnite have announced that they're hosting a new event to celebrate Summer and our new friends from outer space.

Titled 'Cosmic Summer Celebration', this in-game event will take place on the 22nd June at 9AM ET on Believer Beach. It is believed to run for two weeks.

They have yet to confirm the details, but they have teased that this new event will include new quests, rewards and a whole lot of fun!
