It's summertime and Fortnite is having a party and you're invited! Epic Game's battle royale is set for a celebration, a self-described "welcome party", that will go by the name Cosmic Summer Celebration.
The two-week event promises "new quests, new rewards, and a whole lot of fun" and is directly tied to the Invasion theme of Season 7 which has already seen players collect Alien Artifacts and be able to use a number of sci-fi weapons.

Not much else is know, though more information is expected soon, though when you are talking about extra-terrestrials how that information will arrive is anyone's guess.
We will, of course, keep you updated until then; here is everything we know about the Cosmic Summer Celebration.
When does it start?
This one we know for certain, the Cosmic Summer Celebration will kick off on Tuesday, 22nd June at 9 am ET (6 am PT / 2 pm BST).
The event is expected to last two weeks, finishing on Tuesday, 6th July.
All Cosmic Summer quests and rewards
Check out the full list of Fortnite Cosmetic Summer Celebration quests and rewards. These quests will unlock three at a time over the next nine days.
What can we expect?
A follow-up tweet told players to expect "festivities (including) new quests, new rewards, and a whole lot of fun with your friends!"
So we will likely see an overarching questline, new cosmetics in the shape of skins and backbitings etc, and some casual party elements.
What is no doubt is that it all ties in with season 7 and its invasion theme. A "welcome party" that takes place on "Believer Beach" points to the game getting a few new intergalactic guests.
