Fortnite developer Epic Games is getting into the Valentine’s Day spirit with the release of a new patch and event called “#ShareTheLove Valentine’s Surprise.” As part of this, it is launching a series of challenges which, if completed, will unlock a free Battle Pass for Season 8 of the game.
“Everyone who completes 13 free Overtime Challenges by February 27 will receive the upcoming Season 8 Battle Pass for free,” Epic explains on the Fortnite website. “If you don’t have an outfit, now is your chance to get several for free. With the Battle Pass, you’ll receive two Season 8 Outfits instantly and you can earn up to five more. Save your V-Bucks, this one’s on us.”
This is quite a big deal, as the Fortnite Battle Pass enables players to unlock a huge variety of cosmetics that can be used to customize their character. Additionally, it grants owners access to an exclusive set of weekly challenges, which are crucial to levelling up the Battle Pass and getting those cosmetics quicker.
The first set of Overtime Challenges that can be be completed to work towards that free Fortnite Season 8 Battle Pass are now available in the game, and will require players to spend some time in the Creative mode, hunt for chests or ammo boxes, and play with a friend in duos.
