'Fortnite' Overtime Challenges Guide

For those looking to cozy up and get down on some of that Fortnite action before season 7 tapers off long after Valentine's Day, there's a new lovely challenge called Overtime going on now that offers some festive rewards and a chance at a free Battle Pass.


"The response we’ve seen to the #SharetheLove event has been amazing," began the team over at Epic Games in their latest blog post. "And with the arrival of Valentine’s Day, we’re here to share one more surprise."
