Fortnite Celebrates Valentine’s Day With New Hearts Wild Event

Valentine’s Day doesn’t come around until next week, but Fortnite is starting the fun early with its new Hearts Wild Event. During the event, you’ll find a tournament, new Creator Challenges, online papercraft, new “lovely” outfits in the Item Shop, and more.

One of the new items to hit the Item Shop this week is the Lovely Outfit. You’ll have a chance to score the new costume early by taking part in the Hearts Wild Cup on February 9, which sees you accruing points over three hours of game time with your Duos partner – top-performing teams in each region will earn the Lovely Outfit and the Heartblast Back Bling.

To participate in the tournament, you’ll need to have an account level of 30 or above and have two-factor authentication enabled. If you’re thinking of tossing your hat in the ring, be sure to read the Hearts Wild Cup official rules.

Once the Hearts Wild Cup concludes, a new Community Battle called Hearts Wild Team Battles will make an appearance. From February 10 to February 17, you’ll team up with popular creators to earn points in “unique Challenges.” Place high enough, and your team could win some of the following swag:

  • First place: Breathless Blades Pickaxe, Shufflly Shapes Wrap, Reel Love Spray, Perfect Match Emoticon, & Hearts Wild Team Battles Banner
  • Second place: Shufflly Shapes Wrap, Reel Love Spray, Perfect Match Emoticon, & Hearts Wild Team Battles Banner
  • Third place: Reel Love Spray, Perfect Match Emoticon, & Hearts Wild Team Battles Banner
  • Fourth place: Perfect Match Emoticon & Hearts Wild Team Battles Banner
  • Fifth place: Hearts Wild Team Battles Banner

Fortnite Creative is also getting a lovely makeover on February 9, and will feature plenty of cutesy new content in the Creative Hub. The renovation will go live on February 9 at 10am ET and will stick around until February 16 at 10am ET.

This week’s quests will go live in a few days on February 11, which see you helping Fishstick get a date – and earning plenty of XP in the process.

The Hearts Wild Event is also bringing back papercraft cosplay, and templates are now available on the Fortnite Cosplay website. Mask printouts include designs for Wild Card, Lovethorn, and Heartbreaker, and mini-models of Cuddle Team Leader, Cuddle King, and Love Ranger.
