Fortnite developer Epic Games is in the spirit of Valentine's Day with the release of a new patch and event called "#ShareTheLove Valentine's Surprise". As part of it, it starts a series of challenges that, once completed, unlock a free Battle Pass for the 8th season of the game. This move may not be so coincidental shortly after the launch of Respawn's Apex Legends, which already had over 25 million players.
"Anyone who completes free overtime challenges by February 27 th will be able to get the upcoming Season 8 Battle Pass for free," explains Epic on the Fortnite website. "If you do not have an outfit, you now have the chance to get several for free, and with the Battle Pass, you can immediately get two outfits for the 8th season and earn up to five more. Save your V-Bucks, this one us. "

In addition, owners will have access to a number of exclusive weekly challenges that are critical to advancing to the Battle Pass and speeding up these cosmetics.
