Fortnite players will celebrate the game's birthday next week through a limited time, in-game event. It's hard to believe the game has already been out for a year but on July 24th, Fortnite will be 1 year old.

Challenges include playing matches, dealing damage to opponents and even dancing in front of birthday cakes in the game.

While it's not necessarily stealthy, which can be a really important quality in a Battle Royale game where you need to avoid conflict until you stand a good chance at winning, it still looks hilarious.

The number-crunchers over at SuperData are reporting that the global craze that is Epic Games' Fortnite has absolutely raked in the gold with its in-game purchases, with estimates popping the $1 billion dollar mark.
