The latest Fortnite patch notes have been published that bring a number of cool things into the game. This week marks the first birthday of Fortnite and Epic has a "party planned" for #Fortnite1st. Players will be able to "eat cake, party and bring your friends" to the celebration. Along the way, everyone can complete challenges to unlock the brand new cosmetic birthday set.

For those who really loved the recently added and removed Playground LTM, we have great news: It will be making a return on Wednesday, July 25th. Players will find some neat new additions including the new "team selection options that let you and your squad set up team battles for practice and training".

Lastly for Battle Royale, players will be able to get hold of the Compact SMG that is a high-capacity, fast firing, up-close-and-personal weapon.

Save the World players will find the brand new location, Canny Valley. "Adventure into the desert of Canny Valley and explore Thunder Route 99...Immerse yourself in the story, uncover its secrets and explore the new Arid Biome with your friends".

Save the World players will also be able to celebrate the game's first birthday with a cake, loot and a special celebratory questline. Once complete, players unlock Birthday Brigade Ramirez and find event tickets that can be spent on a special limited-time Llama.

Check out the full update notes on the Fortnite site.
