Game developers have aimed to keep the title up to date with trending figures and topics, as collabs and other events have regularly featured. Professional athletes like Naomi Osaka have recently been included, among other celebrity icons.
The next event keeps up with Women's History Month as Fortnite is celebrating women in March. Here's how to get some free items, featured islands, and more when Fortnite celebrates International Women's Day.
