Fortnite Share The Love event has begun in Battle Royale on PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PCs, Macs, iOS and Android.

The Fortnite Share The Love event began last week and will run all the way until February 27.

And this week Fortnite players will see the Share The Love event get a big update with patch 7.40.

Fortnite update 7.40 is expected to drop on either Tuesday or Wednesday, and with it it will bring the new Overtime challenges.

The Fortnite Overtime challenges are for Battle Royale players who have completed all of the 10 weekly challenges in the Battle Pass.

Explaining how it works in a post online, Epic Games said: “Did you complete your 10 weekly Challenges and are looking for more?

“We have you covered! Starting with the v7.40 release, all players will have access to new, additional Overtime Challenges.

“Complete these Challenges by the end of the Season to unlock 5 new rewards including the Valentine Wrap and Vines Contrail.

“And for Battle Pass owners, the Overtime Challenge rewards will include new unlockable styles for the Trog, Powder, and Onesie outfits.”

A start time for the Fortnite Overtime challenges has not been revealed yet.

It remains to be seen whether the Fortnite Overtime challenges go live immediately after the rollout of update 7.40.

If that’s the case then past Fortnite patch releases may give an indication of when the Fortnite Overtime challenges will go live.

The last major Fortnite update – patch 7.30 – went live after server downtime scheduled at 9am.

Fortnite server downtime typically lasts between one and three hours, if all goes to plan.

So fans in the UK should be able be able to have access to the update 7.40 content – and maybe the Overtime challenges – by 12pm UK time tomorrow.

Here else is what Battle Royale fans can expect from the Fortnite Share The Love event:
