Epic Games announced a new event called Best Friendzy, focusing on in-game rewards for Fortnite players who play with friends.

The event will run from Aug. 31 until Sept. 12 at 3:00 p.m. ET.

Fortnite Best Friendzy Event Explained

As with most tournaments or in-game events, players will need to link their Epic account. Visit and link your account. Your friend doesn't need to link their account to receive points, but if they want to check on the point total at any time, they'll need to be registered.

Here is the point system.

  • Every 10 Minutes Played Together in Battle Royale = 1 Point
  • Every 10 Minutes Played Together in Creative = 1 Point (maximum of 6 points per day)
  • Bonus: During your selected 60-minute Daily Bonus you will receive a 3X bonus for your time spent playing Fortnite (i.e., every 10 minutes played together = 3 points).

Best Friendzy Rewards

These are the cosmetics you'll be working toward.

  • Outer Space Handshake Emoticon = 3 points
  • Invasion Remix Track = 10 points
  • Life’s a Beach Wrap= 20 points
  • Aquari-Axe Pickaxe = 50 points

This isn't the only event added to the game recently. Epic Games partnered with TIME Magazine to create the March Through Time project. The controversial event has split the internet on the appropriateness of such a topic inside a video game.

The Best Friendzy event, however, will have no such controversy.
