Popular online battle-royale game Fortnite is coming up with Valentine's Day special update with the v7.40 release.

The v7.40 update will also bring with it more Overtime Challenges. This set of skins will be available to any players who now support a Creator or choose to enter a Creator Code between February 8 and February 22.

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

Epic Games have announced the Fortnite Share the Love event which includes Overtime challenges and rewards, double xp and competitive.

The event will feature a few colorful reward incentives, including a free Cuddle Team Leader wrap for anyone that buys something using a Creator Code and some unlockable skin styles for Trog, Powder, and Onesie.

If you are trying to complete your Battle Pass and get level 100, your best bet is to get it done by the end of February.

Wait there more! Fortnite Creative will be celebrating the creativity of the community with a rotating set of featured islands every day.

Several placement matches will be run on the weekend of 9 and 10 February, and the top performing players will be placed directly into the higher divisions.

The four divisions for the series are the Open Division, Prospect Division, Contender Division, and Champion Division.

Time will surely tell whether the new competitive series is well-received by players, but it should at least calm the fears of those who thought Epic Games would fail to adapt in the presence of Apex Legends.

This event is all about you and your squad, enjoy it! If players manage to earn a pin during the Champion Division, then they will unlock access to the finals, which are set to take place on February 23 and 24. Earning a pin during a daily session will promote a player to the next division. 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.
