On top of that, you'll have double XP weekends on February 15-17 and 22-24 if you need some help finishing out that battle pass. Upgrading the pass will reward the player, as well as existing Battle Pass owners, with new unlockable styles for the Trog, Powder and Onesie outfits. The Share the Love competitive series will run placement matches on February 9 and 10. Players who now support a Creator in the game or enter a Creator Code between February 8 - February 22 will receive the free Cuddle Hearts Wrap as a gift. "Don't worry, we're keeping track", say Epic. To celebrate the love-themed occasion, Fortnite will be getting a special "Share the Love" event. From February 12 to 22 there will be a rotating set of community made featured islands for players to enjoy. There will be a new tournament system that will be implemented with the v7.40 update. Competition will be separated across four different divisions that will run simultaneously every day, starting with Open Division, moving into Prospect Division, then Contender Division, and finally, Champion Division.

Access to the next division up is unlocked by earning a pin during any daily session. The event starts tomorrow and lasts until the end of the month and the start of Season 8.

Those who manage to go all the way and earn a pin during a Champion Division session will unlock access to the Champion Division Finals to take place on 23 and 24 February.
