Cosmic Summer Celebration Event

What Is The Cosmic Summer Celebration Event?

Fortnite have announced that they're hosting a new event to celebrate Summer and our new friends from outer space.

Titled 'Cosmic Summer Celebration', this in-game event will take place on the 22nd June at 9AM ET on Believer Beach. It is believed to run for two weeks.

They have yet to confirm the details, but they have teased that this new event will include new quests, rewards and a whole lot of fun!

It's no surprise to see Fortnite run a seasonal event as they tend to do this often.

Patch Notes


Competitive pre-season will come to and end with the new update and Arena Hype points will be reset.

New Content

If you were watching the Battle Pass Trailer carefully, you'll probably have spotted a few items that haven't yet released in-game.

These included:

  • Rick's Cowinator - this lifts objects and throws them
  • Plasma Shotgun
  • No Gravity Throwable

Big thank you to @HYPEX for pointing these out.

We may also get the 'Bad News' heavy weapon as the killfeed reads the following:

  • [PlayerName] ZAPPED themselves to oblivion
  • [PlayerName] ZAPPED [EnemyName] (Distance)
  • [PlayerName] nearly ZAPPED [EnemyName] (Distance)

Credit goes to @HYPEX again.
