Valentine's Day 2019: Fortnite gears up with Share the Love Event

Epic's also hosting two double XP weekends: February 15 to 17 and 22 to 24.

According to reports, it is speculated that there will be no hike in the price of Fortnite battle Pass and Epic Games will stick to their 950 Vbucks as earlier.

Finally, Share The Love will include a Competitive Series. When that v7.40 update releases, players will also be given access to new Overtime Challenges that can be completed to unlock 5 new rewards such as the Valentine Wrap and Vines Contrail.

Fortnite's "Share the Love" event kicks off tomorrow running until the 27th, and as is tradition, will come with a set of event exclusive challenges and rewards for players to complete and unlock. In celebration of Valentine's Day, you're invited to join us for the #ShareTheLove event.

Once the event is underway, players who support a Creator or enter a Creator Code will receive the Cuddle Hearts wrap for free. In addition to new challenges and cosmetics, the event brings double XP weekends, a bunch of Fortnite Creative highlights, a new competitive series, and bonus rewards for participating in the Support-a-Creator programme.

There'll be a few new features to the tournament structure added throughout the Share the Love Competitive Series, with more unlocking with the v7.40 update. Upgrading the pass will reward the player, as well as existing Battle Pass owners, with new unlockable styles for the Trog, Powder and Onesie outfits.

If you're a fan of Fortnite's Creative mode, then the Share the Love event also has a nice update for you to look forward to. Competition will be split across four separate divisions which will run simultaneously each day in the following format. The blog post says it's "right before the arrival of Season 8" which could mean that Season 7 ends on February 28 when the 8.0 patch drops but that's still unconfirmed. If you progress to that last tier and earn a pin, you'll get a spot in the finals on February 23 and 24.
