Fortnite celebrates its first birthday with rewards for players

"We are thrilled to collaborate and partner with Epic Games to create the inaugural Fortnite product collection and to bring these characters to life for the first time", Brian Mariotti, CEO of Funko, said in a news release. Viewers watched more than 574 million hours of Fortnite on streaming platform Twitch, easily outpacing other video games, according to the SuperData report. In a more specialized challenge, you'll need to dance in front of ten different birthday cakes in order to get a celebratory spray. That precise recipe for success is working wonders for Epic Games, which is raking in cash hand-over-fist from Fortnite.

Fortnite is getting ready to celebrate its one year birthday and the team wants you to celebrate with them.

And the rewards don't end there either, because with each challenge you complete, you'll unlock a slice of the birthday cosmetic set, which we're hoping is that awesome sprinkle suit in the Fortnite Birthday Celebration image. Complete all three and you'll be given the "Birthday Cake" back bling. Completing the Fortnite Birthday questline will grant players a new Hero, Birthday Brigade Ramirez.

Season 5 of Fortnite gives players plenty of new locations to explore, new weapons to master, and new challenges to undertake.
