Fortnite’s Season 8 Battle Pass is free if you complete these challenges
It’s Valentine’s Day today and we’re really feeling the love from Epic Games. After v7.40 dropped earlier today, players logging in received some very heartwarming news about Season 8:
“Save your V-Bucks, this one’s one us. Everyone who completes 13 free Overtime Challenges by February 27 will receive the upcoming Season 8 Battle Pass for FREE! Jump in and #ShareTheLove now.”
These Overtime Challenges can be completed until February 27 by everyone, so players who don’t have the current Battle Pass can enjoy this lovely gift as well. While several of the challenges are already online, the remaining challenges will be unlocked throughout the next two weeks.
Even better, by completing these challenges, players can also instantly unlock two Season 8 outfits. A third one can be unlocked when you reach Battle Pass Tier 87, so this skin is unfortunately only for Battle Pass owners.
There’s more! For a limited time, gifting is back. Be sure to give some heart-eyes to your friends, because for today only players can send the Heartspan Glider to their special someone for free!
Finally, a new tournament series called ‘Share The Love Series’ was added, in which players will compete across any of four division tournaments: Open Division, Prospect Division, Contendor Division and Champion Division. Sprays will be granted based on the highest division achieved, including the Champion Divisions Finals. The full schedule for your server region can be viewed from the Events tab. The event is available from February 14 until February 24.
