Fortnite has finally revealed its trailer for the big seasonal update “No Sweat Summer”, where fans will get new quests, cosmetics, and challenges.
You can watch the full trailer from Fortnite’s official YouTube channel here, which focuses on gameplay instead of explaining the event details outright:
The new trailer shows off loads of fun on the beach, mainly revealing the upcoming boat races. Through August 9th, 9 AM eastern time, players will be able to challenge friends to boat races and vote on rebuilding the Tilted Towers.
There will be new quests to complete, for new rewards. But fans will also get another chance to pick up some returning items, such as Heist, Midsummer Midas, Scuba Crystal, Summer Drift, and Boardwalk Ruby. Some of the upcoming emotes are also clever spins on existing ones.
For a closer look at all of the summer event rewards, you can check out this YouTube video from Fortnite enthusiast FNBRIntel:
A new “Discover Row” will allow players to check out some Creative Experiences like the Eclypse Festival, where you can find the races, surf, complete an obstacle course and more. There will also be two different prop hunts, Golf-Nite, Fishing Legend, and more.
According to some recent leaks from reliable source @ShiinaBR, players can also expect to see the “Boardwalk Warriors” pack sometime tonight, with more cosmetics rolling out soon:
Now’s as good a time as any to jump into Fortnite, whether you’re a longtime fan, new or returning. The game just announced their new “Refer-a-Friend” program, featuring Xander-themed rewards for players who complete challenges with a friend that’s played less than two hours of certain modes.
Overall, fans are pleased with the new summer event, praising the focus on BR instead of creative content. And more than a few are intrigued by some of the potential emotes shown off in the trailer, like this one:
