If you can quite believe it, Fortnite: Battle Royale is turning half a decade old. From struggling PVE game to one of the biggest PVP games in history, Fortnite’s life has never been boring. To celebrate the landmark, Epic is releasing Fortnite’s 5th Birthday challenges with free rewards up for grabs by all.

This year, despite it being such a momentous occasion, is unfortunately very similar to previous birthday events in Fortnite — you probably know the routine by now. Find cake, presents, and balloons to get yourself some free rewards before the event ends. While nobody is using them all the time, it’s quite satisfying to look back on the birthday cosmetics in your locker and think back on how much Fortnite has changed over the years.

Here’s everything you need to know about Fortnite’s 5th Birthday, including what the challenges are, which free rewards are available, and when all the fun kicks off.
