ESTNN breaks down the different offerings in this year’s Fortnite Valentine’s Day event.
Fortnite Battle Royale is gearing up for a Valentine’s Day event, dubbed Hearts Wild, where players can earn in-game awards and purchase new cosmetics. Epic Games has a lot to offer this year, including Community Battles, a slew of new love-themed items, emotes, skins, harvesting tools and more. Some other notable inclusions in this year’s Valentine’s Day event are a fresh Creative Hub and free cosplay masks. Epic is also hosting a Hearts Wild Cup, where players can win the “Lovely” in-game cosmetic outfit and back bling. Let’s take a look at all that Epic has in store for the Hearts Wild event.
Hearts Wild Cup
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.
- Open to all regions
- Three-hour session
- A maximum of ten matches
- Top-performing teams will collect the cosmetic prizes
Hearts Wild Team Battles
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. Here is a list of rewards:
- 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

Creative Hub, Cosplay and Fishstick’s ‘Shot At Love’
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.”
