Fortnite’s summer event will give players new challenges and game modes every day

Epic’s unvaulting a new weapon every day for the event

Epic Games

Epic has announced the latest seasonal event for Fortnite, a fortnight-long event called 14 Days of Summer. The event will include new rotating content likes skins, game modes, and challenges that change every day. The event starts on June 25 and will run until July 9.

The 14 Days of Summer event will also continue Fortnite’s trend of bringing back items from past versions of the game. Every day of the event, Epic will unvault a new weapon that’s been removed from the game in the last year or so. Each weapon will only be available for 24 hours before it disappears again.

The two weeks that this event will run for are also the same two weeks that Epic employees will be on vacation. The studio announced last week that employees will be off from June 24 to July 8 for a mandatory two-week vacation. However, as evidenced by this event, the game itself won’t be facing any downtime while Epic employees are away.

The Limited Time Modes for the event will feature 14 modes, most of which are new for 14 Days of Summer. While we don’t know for sure which days will feature which game modes, Epic did give us some details on which modes exactly would be included in 14 Days of Summer.
