Fortnite Battle Royale players from the Asia region had the opportunity to earn the “Lovely” skin and back bling on the Nintendo Switch had first dibs during the Switch Cup 2 tournament just over a week ago. Now, players from all regions and platforms have the same chance. Here is the tournament’s general format.

  • Duos
  • Open to all regions
  • Three-hour session
  • A maximum of ten matches
  • Top-performing teams will collect the cosmetic prizes

Hearts Wild Team Battles

Six Fortnite cosmetic items from the Hearts Wild event are shown, with two pink machetes with black and gold handles in the middle and on the outside are a heart with a flame on top of it and an arrow through it with the letters "GG" on it, a humanoid fish creature holding up his hands in the shape of a heart, another heart with an arrow through it and a flame on top, but this one with a smily face, and a multi-colored assault rifle

Starting February 10, players can queue into Hearts Wild Team Battles to compete for more in-game prizes. Epic’s blog post states, “Fortnite players will have an opportunity to team up with their favorite Creators to help them earn points in unique Challenges.” It sounds similar to the Winter Trials from last month, with more prizes available.

Fortnite’s Valentine’s Day-themed Creative Hub will go live on February 9 at 10 AM ET. Those looking to showcase their cosplay abilities can do so from now until February 15 by visiting this link, where you can download and craft different ‘Hearts Wild’ masks and foldable art. The final shoe to drop during the event is a set of new quests named Fishstick’s Shot at Love. These quests will not be available in Fortnite until February 11, but Epic teased that players “will also have to help Big Chuggus and Lovely spread the spirit of love on the Island.”

That covers all that we know so far about Fortnite’s Hearts Wild event. Stay tuned to ESTNN for more Fortnite news and updates!
