With the Share The Love event, Epic is making sure to give Fortnite players a lot to look forward to around Valentine's Day-even if you're single.

Running from today (8 February) until 27 February the #ShareTheLove event, brings special rewards and challenges to players of the massively popular Battle Royale game. In addition to new challenges and cosmetics, the event brings double XP weekends, a bunch of Fortnite Creative highlights, a new competitive series, and bonus rewards for participating in the Support-a-Creator programme.

Will you be supporting a creator in order to get the free Fortnite Cuddle Hearts wrap?

Also included in the update are additional Overtime Challenges, which serve as an extension to the regular 10 weekly challenges.

There's also going to be two double XP weekends leading up to the end of Season 5, on running from February 15th to 17th, and the other from the 22nd to the 24th. Those with the Season 7 Battle Pass will be able to unlock new styles for the Trog, Powder, and Onesie outfits. Placement matches will be available on February 9 and 10, and the best performing players will be put directly into the higher divisions. The Featured Island Frenzy runs from February 12th - 22nd. Show your support by jumping into Creative each day and playing with friends. Some new features in the tournament system will be used during the "Share the Love" Competitive Series with more unlocking with the v7.40 update. These islands will showcase the overall creativity of the community, so you won't want to miss out on experiencing them for yourself.

Access to the next division up is unlocked by earning a pin during any daily session. The blog post says it's "right before the arrival of Season 8" which could mean that Season 7 ends on February 28 when the 8.0 patch drops but that's still unconfirmed. Players who earn a pin during a session in the Champion Division will gain access to the Champion Division Finals, which will take place between February 23rd and February 24th.
