As many Fortnite fans are well aware, Epic Games has remained diligent when it comes to providing a continuous amount of tweaks and updates for the title's free-to-play Battle Royale portion. The timing of the outage was meant to minimize impact on players.

For those unaware of what this oddly-named consumable does, it essentially grants 1 HP and 1 Shield per second, for 25 seconds, essentially giving you a 25 HP and 25 Shield boost over time. Some happy news, in fact.

While it's not necessarily a bad thing to want players to engage and fight more, there seems to be a large contingent-especially within the competitive community-that want to see building made more of a priority, as it is what singled Fortnite out from the pack in the first place.

"Fortnite's" popular limited-time mode, Playground, returns to the game on Wednesday, the day after the game's one-year anniversary. A quick way to level up is by doing the weekly challenges which grant a good chunk of experience to players in comparison to a standard fight to the death in the game.

Naturally, the birthday challenges are cake-themed. If you complete the new Save the World quest line, you can unlock the Birthday Brigade Ramirez skin. Once you've completed all three challenges, you'll earn the Birthday Cake Back Bling for your character.

Can't see birthday challenges?

Those additions will definitely help Fortnite players get in the birthday spirit. This was problematic for many players who complained on Twitter and Reddit, prompting Epic to tweak the mode. In celebration of the game's success, developer Epic Games is hosting a first birthday event in-game, which officially kicked off on Tuesday morning. This allows players to use "ew team select options letting you and your squad set up team battles for practice and training".
