The "Refer a Friend" program in Fortnite might not have gone live just yet, but it looks as though it could very soon. According to @FortniteBR, a promotion for the event has been spotted on the Samsung Galaxy Store and is set to run until Nov. 14.
The program is a different spin on the "Reboot a Friend" event which Epic Games ran back in Chapter 2, Season 6. This version saw players earn rewards by inviting friends back into the game who haven't played in 30 days or more. The new "Refer a Friend" version follows a similar function but instead encourages players to invite friends who do not have an Epic Games account.

It's currently unclear if any rewards will be offered up for the new players. More information will likely be given in the official announcement.
Fortnite Refer a Friend Rules
The rules to take part and qualify for the rewards are fairly simple:
- Players can only invite friends who have never had an Epic Games account.
- Similar to before, the new players will have to play Fortnite for a certain period of time. The length of time has yet to be announced.
- The referring player will receive the rewards upon the new player's completion of the specified time.
Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 8 is live now and set to run until Dec. 5, 2021.
