Perhaps due to Apex Legends’ huge popularity, genre juggernaut Fortnite is hosting back-to-back double XP weekends, and the chance to earn a free battle pass for season eight. The Valenine’s Surprise event closes out the Share the Love event of February, and season seven overall, which ends Feb. 28

The big surprise is that anyone who completes 13 overtime challenges by Feb. 27 will receive season eight’s battle pass for free. The seasonal battle passes normally cost about $10 in V-Bucks.

You can earn season seven skins by completing five, 10, and 15 challenges. Unlocking five challenges will also reward the Valentine Wrap and Vines Contrail rewards. The first three overtime challenges are:

  • Collection 15 Coins in Featured Creative Islands
  • Search loot boxes at a motel or RV park (7 times)
  • Place Top 15 in Duos with a friend (3 times)

More overtime challenges will become available on Saturday, Tuesday, and next Friday. As further incentive, Epic Games is hosting two double XP weekends. Earn twice the XP when playing between Feb. 15-17 and again during the weekend of Feb. 22-24.

Fortnite is in the midst of the Share the Love event for February. Players can still earn a Culled Hearts Wrap skin by supporting a creator through the Support-A-Creator program, until Feb 22. It’s essentially an affiliate program. When earning or purchasing V-Bucks, your chosen creator will receive a share. To support a creator, enter their Epic game tag in the creator section of the item shop.

Fortnite is available for free on PC (Epic Games store), PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and mobile devices. It’s rated T for Teen.
