Last year, Epic Games released a 14 Days of Summer event in Fortnite. This year, however, the company is gearing up for something slightly different.
Epic Games released a new update earlier today and now they have officially announced Fortnite Summer Splash 2020 in a recent blog post.
Fortnite Summer Event 2020 Release Date & End Date
Fortnite Summer Splash is now available until the end of Season 3.
Although dates can subject to change, Season 3 will end on Thursday, August 27. This means you have just under two months to make the most of this event.
Rotation of Classic & New LTMs
This event brings back some classic LTMs with some new summer-themed features. These classic LTMs include Fog of War, Close Encounters, Unvaulted, Catch! and more.
You can also expect to see new LTMs launch in a future update. The official Epic Games also blog mentions “new takes on Operation: Knockout, a reel ‘em in royale, and a game of elimination-powered upgrades.”
New Summer-Themed Outfits in Item Shop
This event will also introduce plenty of new summer-themed outfits and items to the Fortnite Item Shop.
In celebration of Fortnite Summer Splash 2020, these new skins are inspired by most things related to summer including sand, sea, sports, and good food.
This event also welcomes back the Summer Drift and Beach Bomber.
