Battle Royale, the virally popular video game, has generated more than 1 billion dollars in revenue through in-game purchases alone, estimates gaming intelligence company SuperData.

Funko and Epic Games have signed a new deal to launch a new line of Fortnite-themed toy, collectibles, and other related products. To celebrate, players will be getting a slew of bonuses as part of an in-game event.

Fortnite is celebrating its one year anniversary with a special prizes and an in-game event on July 24. Once you've completed all three, you'll earn the Birthday Cake Back Bling for your character.

Week 2 of the Fortnite Summer Skirmish Series saw a much different format than Week 1, as each of the competing players played 10 public matches.

Epic Games' released a postmortem yesterday detailing Fortnite's playground LTM (limited time) mode, which was initially released June 27 and gave players one hour to build, explore and hone their skills without being placed in an ongoing match. The game's latest season just started and changed the dynamic of Fortnite's map fairly significantly.

Meanwhile, the battle royale genre continues to be the most popular for streaming, with viewers having watched almost 700 million hours - 83 percent of which were from Fortnite - of battle royale gaming in May.

Additionally, a new birthday questline will be added to Fortnite's Save the World mode.

Thankfully, you won't have to spend hours grinding for the rewards either, as the birthday challenges are even easier than the typical daily challenges.

While FORTNITE: The Movie, hits numerous notes of the gaming phenomenon, it's important to know it is not related to a Fortnite television show that was rumored to be in the works.

Each challenge completed will unlock a piece of the birthday cosmetic set.

It now looks like another event is making its way to the game next week with its own unique challenges and quests.
