Epic Games has officially revealed details around the Fortnite Spring Breakout event coming this month.

The developer posted the announcement on Fortnite's official Twitter page, teasing its audience with "new Items, a Duos Cup, Papercraft, and even an in-game reward to earn." From the looks of it, the Spring Breakout event will center around themes of the commercial Easter from players' childhoods with the usual sci-fi Fortnite spin.

Spring Breakout will be Fortnite's "first-ever spring event, according to Epic.

"Ah spring, what a lovely season. Flowers bloom, the weather warms up, and the Island sees the return of robotic ducks and pastel-suited bunnies. Wait… what?!" The developer began.

Starting Tuesday, March 30, several new items, quests, cosmetics and more will be "hatching" for players to find and claim.

A new character, Webster the mechanic duckling, will appear on April 1 with a Legendary quest that, when completed, awards players with the Tactical Quaxes Pickaxe. The Egg Launcher will also return with a new forageable egg that, when consumed, "will bring a hop to your step."

Additionally, duo teams will be able to compete in the Spring Breakout Cup on Friday, April 2, for a chance to win the Webster and his matching Mecha-Feathers back bling. Official rules and criteria can be found on Epic's website.

Four new papercrafts have been uploaded to Fortnite's cosplay page, including three masks—Webster, Stella, and Rabbit Raider—and models—Nitehare, Cluck, and Bun Bun.

Finally—who could forget about cosmetics? Epic is bringing back a host of fan-favorites to the Item Shop such as the Bunny Brawler and Quackling.
