Battle royal video game Fortnite has kicked-off its first major event of 2020.
The event, named Love And War, launched today and will reportedly run to February 17th. Love And War, as suggested in its name, is Valentine’s Day-themed and will introduce a new limited-time mode called Search And Destroy which splits players into two teams of six.
One team will be focused on attacking a bombsite while the defenders will be required to defend against the attack. Players are required to eliminate the opposing team to win and players can earn gold through the mode.
The gold can be earned by eliminating enemy players, winning rounds or completing objectives. Gold can then be spent on special weapons, shields or building materials. According to Epic Games, the studio behind Fortnite, the gold carries over between rounds but resets whenever you switch sides.
Users who participate in the Search And Destroy mode can unlock various cosmetic items including a pickaxe, new skins and emotes. The event will also feature new cosmetic items which can be bought in the Fortnite item shop during the event with real cash.
In addition to the Love And War event, Fortnite has been updated with Epic Games’ Chaos Physics Engine which should change the game’s visuals, although nothing too different has been implemented and Epic has said it will be “closely monitoring feedback”.
In a statement on the Fortnite website, Epic Games says: “It’s the perfect time to party up with that special squadmate for the first big Fortnite event of 2020: Love And War! Drop in and play the new community-made Search And Destroy LTM and earn a free Pickaxe, Emote and more as you complete Love And War challenges.
“Step up your combo with all new Outfits, Pickaxes in the in-game Item Shop. Don’t miss your chance to play the Love And War Event, ending February 17.”
The Harley Quinn Crossover
Warner Bros’ latest film in the DC Comics franchise Birds Of Prey And The Fabulous Emancipation Of One Harley Quinn releases this week, and new leaks suggest that Epic Games will reportedly launch a crossover to celebrate its release.
The crossover will reportedly coincide with the Love And War event. It allows players to purchase Harley Quinn skins which are based on the new Birds Of Prey film and 2016’s Suicide Squad movie. The skins come with Quinn’s baseball bat or mallet as replacements for her pickaxe.
According to reports, Harley Quinn will also come with several challenges including placing in the top 30, 20, and 10 in Solos, Duos, or Squads, dealing damage to opponents with pickaxes, and more.
Unfortunately, Epic Games hasn’t yet announced the Harley Quinn crossover event, but since the film is set for a release this weekend, an official announcement should be imminent, followed shortly by the crossover’s launch. Until then, however, keep on the look-out for any official news from Epic Games!
