As Epic heads off on a two-week summer vacation, they drop a summer event with new LTMs, cosmetics, challenges and more. Kicking off with a party at Believer Beach.
Fortnite’s latest Cosmic Summer event is now live and scheduled to run until 11:59 PM ET on July 5th. Many were expecting an game live event to launch the new summer-themed festivities, but it seems that wasn’t in Epic’s plans this time around. Instead, we were met with a fairly straightforward launch packed with new challenges, creative LTMs and cosmetics.
Many popular Creative LTMs have returned with the update, including Bios Zone Wars Trio 1.0 – Custom Teams, Pro 100, Freaky Flights – Air Royale and The Pit – FFA.
By participating in these LTMs you can complete quests and unlock a range of beach party themed rewards, including the Brain Freeze Back Blin and the Cloud Llama Board Glider surfboard, each with various color pallets and designs to unlock.
All of the LTMs and their associated rewards will be released sequentially throughout the event, staying until the events conclusion.
Completing all twelve Cosmic Summer Quests will net you a bunch of rewards including the Icy Pop Wrap and the Lil’ Treat Emote.
New and returning outfits
Also included in the event are new outfits and bundles, all as you would expect, fitting the beach and summer theme. Including a bodyguard themed Beach Brutus skin and a Midsummer Midas skin with three different styles, one of which enables all of his tattoos to turn golden.
