  • Funko lands another huge partner and will produce ‘Fortnite’ toys and collectibles

In brief: It's no secret that Fortnite: Battle Royale has been a phenomenal success since it launched in September a year ago, but is the free-to-play title making the kind of cash that reflects its popularity? Epic Games is making hand over fist, and Fortnite is the most-played game in the world right now.

"In the 2018 - 2019 season, Epic Games will provide $100,000,000 to fund prize pools for Fortnite competitions".

Completing all three challenges will get you a birthday cake back bling, an appropriately tasty-looking cake with lit candles.

It also seems that you'll be able to dance in front of 10 birthday cakes spread throughout the map in order to unlock a birthday-themed spray. Next, 1000 total damage has to be dealt to enemy players and will unlock the birthday emoticon.

Epic Games has apologised for server issues crippling the inaugural Fortnite Summer Skirmish tournament. By completing this questline, players will earn the new Birthday Brigade Ramirez hero.

Either way, the birthday challenges begin on July 24. This include special birthday cosmetics that can only be earned via special challenges to unstable husks carrying a tasty surprise - there's something for everyone!

As mentioned above, Epic Games will be changing the format each week to keep things fresh and has also confirmed that they have made backend changes to try and avoid the problem that hit during week 1.

Fortnite downtime tends to last a few hours, and will affect players on all platforms - so that's PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PC, Mac and Mobile. Using visuals and sounds from the game, FORTNITE: The Movie follows a group of battle royale participants dropping from the party bus and fighting to the death. SuperData predicts that the battle royale market revenue will increase 625% by next year when games like Call of Duty: Black Op 4 drop (COD has implemented battle royale style games into their newest title).

Thankfully, you won't have to spend hours grinding for the rewards either, as the birthday challenges are even easier than the typical daily challenges.
