It’s time for a Fortnite event.

Epic Games said earlier today it would provide details on the first big Fortnite event of the year, and it has: it’s called Love and War.

Love and War is a new community-made Search and Destroy LTM. In it, teams of six will play up to 11 rounds. Win six rounds and you will achieve “total victory.”

The goal for Attackers is to destroy the bombsite, while Defenders will try to protect the bombsite.

You can also eliminate the enemy team in order to win gold. You can also earn gold by planting or defusing objectives and completing rounds. Gold is used to purchase weapons, shields, and additional building materials.

Gold will carry over between rounds but will reset after switching sides.

Playing in the new event will earn you a new pickaxe and emote and competing challenges in Love and War will unlock free cosmetic rewards.

There will also be all-new outfits available in the Item Shop.

The event is live now through February 17.

Sometimes we include links to online retail stores. If you click on one and make a purchase we may receive a small commission. For more information, go here.

Buy our t-shirts, yeah

They're far more stylish than your average video game website tat.
