The Fortnite island is getting a slight Valentine’s Day makeover in time for the Hearts Wild event that’s going to bring a ton of rewards for players to unlock. We have a full breakdown of the new event including start dates, a look at new cosmetics and more.
There are quite a few free in-game items up for grabs this time around as well as classic Fortnite cosmetics coming back to the Item Shop for players to buy into.
That’s not all: the Fortnite Hearts Wild Cup will give some of the strongest Duos in the game a chance to shine in the Hearts Wild Cup while Community Battles will let people earn everything from a new Valentine’s Day themed wrap to the new Breathless Blades Pickaxe skin.
The lovely festivities of the Valentine’s Day event won’t last long, so make sure to keep up with all of the new content down below.
Fortnite Hearts Wild start time
Fortnite’s next event starts on February 8, meaning players can get into the action right from the jump, but they’ll have to wait a bit for every other Wild Hearts offering to activate.
The Hearts Wild Cup will officially begin on February 9, 2021, the next Community Battles called Hearts Wild Team Battles will run through February 10-17, 2021, and expect the Fishstick’s Shot at Love Challenges to drop into the game on February 11, 2021, at 6 AM PST / 9 AM ET.
Hearts Wild Cup
Fortnite’s upcoming Hearts Wild Cup will Duos to complete 10 matches in the span of three hours to get the highest amount of points they possibly can to come out on top.
The best Duos in each server region will be rewarded with the Lovely Outfit and the Heartblast Back Bling to celebrate the event.
Aspiring Duos should be playing on accounts level 30 or higher and have 2FA enabled to be eligible to participate, but will have a great chance at free cosmetics if they can climb the leaderboards.
Hearts Wild Team Battles
Fortnite players will be able to team up with their favorite Creators to earn points in Challenges from February 10 to 17.
These community battles are always going to be hype, but Fortnite is going to facilitate the fun with a bundle of items to give the top team.
