Fortnite players are about to be treated to two weeks of challenges, items, Limited Time Modes, and more during the game's 14 Days of Summer event that's starting soon. This event has something for both the Battle Royale and Save the World communities, but the majority of the event will be geared towards the former. Fortnite's 14 Days of Summer kicks off tomorrow on June 25th, according to an announcement from Epic Games, and many of the event's details have already been revealed.

Throughout every day of the event, new features will be cycled in to give players something to do. A new weapon will be unvaulted, a new LTM will be playable, and a new daily challenge will appear each day. There will also be more outfits and other items that'll rotate into the store, and in the game's Creative mode, there will be a new featured island each day.

Throughout all the LTMs that'll be featured, some of them are new while others are either returning modes or variants on ones that we've seen before. You can see the full list of LTMs below, though they could appear in any order.
