It seems like the famous Battle Bus might be getting a birthday makeover for the event, too.

As mentioned above, Epic Games will be changing the format each week to keep things fresh and has also confirmed that they have made backend changes to try and avoid the problem that hit during week 1.

AWS has helped Fortnite's developers deal with huge spikes in traffic.

Epic Games had planned on hosting the Summer Skirmish events on a Saturday as to not clash with NerdOut's Sunday tournament and Keemstar's Friday tournament. That's according to a new report by SuperData, which estimates that the game has generated more than $1 billion in revenue across all platforms.

According to a new study conducted by research firm SuperData, Fortnite has amassed over $1 billion since it was released previous year. Fortnite Battle Royale is free and available on PC, Mac, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, iOS, and soon, Android.

Trump says he has 'full faith' in United States intelligence after Putin summit
It was the first vote testing how Congress will react to Trump's remarks. But a handful of Trump loyalists remain in the president's camp.

It's pretty incredible when you think about the amount of dollars Epic Games has generated from Fortnite, given that the game is free to download and play. Ironically, its initial release into early access with Save the World was largely ignored, and it wasn't until Battle Royale was released that the game became an worldwide phenomenon.

Since Fortnite has skyrocketed the battle royale genre to worldwide popularity, several other video game series have sought to emulate their success, and they're right to do so.

At that time, we knew that there were errors with the matchmaking system the game uses. "It represented the first time we've been able to bring together a high concentration of some of Fortnite's most talented players and community creators all in one game". Hopefully, for fans, this birthday is the first of many. You can shell out your hard-earned cash for everything from new outfits to dance moves for your character, and it won't give you any advantage whatsoever in the game.

Jump in-game and join the celebration on July 24. More details and pictures of the figures should be released shortly.
