Fortnite BR Playground Returns in New Birthday Update 5.10

Nichole VegaJul 30, 2018

Believe it or not, tomorrow is a whole year since the release of Epic Games' world-dominating shooter Fortnite. These birthday cakes have been added to the map with today's v5.10 update. The event tasks players with completing challenges and quests, which will earn them access to special birthday cosmetics.

The most substantial introduction is the game becoming birthday themed to tie-in with Fortnite turning one. Thankfully, you won't need to worry about providing a birthday llama piñata however, as Epic Games has decided the best celebration is to reward you, the player.

Manage to complete all three challenges, and you'll unlock a "Birthday Cake Back Bling".

Now, even though the 5.0 patch was quite huge, the latest Fortnite update does bring some cool new features into play, in addition to the return of the Playground mode (adored by so many fans in the past).

Playground Mode is making a comeback with a number of changes including the ability to switch teams and a significantly lower respawn time.

A new version of the recently included SMG is incoming as well called the P90, according to the popular Fortnite: Battle Royale Leaks twitter account. Here's all the locations of each Birthday Cake for the Dance Challenge.

"We are thrilled to be part of the Fortnite experience", said Judd Zebersky, CEO, Jazwares.

The last big piece of content arriving in the latest Season 5 patch is a new legendary weapon, the Compact SMG, a high capacity, fast-firing firearm that excels in close range combat.

The confirmation comes after a /r/FortniteBR subreddit user suggested that all the Slurp Juice's bonus should go towards healing if you have full shield and vice versa if you have full health.

Epic Games has also made a bunch of changes and improvements to both weapons and gameplay, you can read about them all in the v.5.10 patch notes.

We don't know for how long Playground or the birthday-related changes will be available.
