A Fortnite taco store is opening in Los Angeles, California for a limited time starting on July 20.
Taking a page out of the Mr. Beast playbook, it seems that Epic Games will be opening its own restaurant. However, it won’t be a lasting part of their brand. Instead, this Fortnite taco store will only be around for a few days before it’s gone forever.
This isn’t the first time that Epic Games has brought its massively popular Battle Royale into the real world. Close to the start of Chapter 1 Season 5, iconic symbols from the game started appearing in the real world. And a week before Chapter 2 Season 7, crop circles and billboards advertised the alien-themed season.
LA Eater reported that LeBron James would be hosting a pop-up taco store in partnership with Fortnite. The restaurant would be called El Rey’s Taco Tuesday and will be open from 1 p.m. to 8 p.m. on July 20. It will also be open from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. on July 21, and from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on July 22.
Each day, the Fortnite taco store will move to a different location in Los Angeles. On Tuesday it will be at 8175 Melrose Avenue. On Wednesday it will be in West Hollywood. And on Thursday, the address is listed as 90046.
LA Eater also reports that the event (including food) will be free for all who attend. The pop-up stores will also feature items, decor, and food inspired by Fortnite. Promotional material and footage of one of the restaurants were found online today and can be seen below.
This type of advertisement isn’t something Fortnite has ever done before. Sure, Epic Games has hosted IRL puzzles and has posted real people in the middle of the desert to guard a giant burger statue. But it’s never opened a physical establishment and invited the world to lunch.
Fans are already speculating that attendees will receive codes for free in-game goodies, while others believe that LeBron James will be in attendance. We don’t know for sure what will come of this event, but the grand opening of El Rey’s Taco Tuesday is only a day away.
The Fortnite Cosmic Summer challenges offer a lot of free rewards. Hop into the events Creative Island and start unlocking cosmetics.

Fortnite’s annual Summer celebration is back, and it’s offering a ton of free rewards. Here are all of the Fortnite Cosmic Summer challenges and rewards.
The Fortnite Cosmic Summer Celebration was advertised as a welcoming party for the aliens. The same aliens that stole the Zero Point and are now abducting players. However, there are still some inhabitants on The Island who believe the aliens are good.
Regardless, players can participate in the summer festivities to earn free rewards. Similar to Fortnite’s Winter events, new challenges will unlock daily for players to complete. The Summer event is meant to last for two weeks, so Epic Games is stretching out the quests to last just as long. Players will want to complete these challenges to unlock some pretty sweet rewards.
Below is a list that contains every Cosmic Summer challenge and the reward players earn by completing it. These challenges can’t be completed by playing normal game modes. Instead, players will have to visit a Creative Island by using the code 4059-2791-0712. There are 17 challenges in total.
Here is when and how players can attend the Fortnite x The O2 interactive musical experience to claim the free UFOs & Aliens lobby track.

Fortnite is teaming up with The O2 to put on a special musical event in-game. Those who attend the Fortnite x The O2 event will receive the free UFOs & Aliens lobby track.
The O2 is a large entertainment district in London, England. This massive space houses an indoor arena, music club, movie theater, and more. It is teaming up with Epic Games to bring The O2 to life in Fortnite.
The digital venue is filled to the brim with activities for players to enjoy. The O2 features mini-games, rides, and places to hang out with friends. Fortnite x The O2 will also include a special interactive musical performance. As well, players can earn a couple of free rewards.
Players can already get the free Squeezy Life Spray by visiting the O2 Blueroom at The O2 Island in creative mode. The code to visit the island is 2500-3882-9781. The Squeezy Life Spray can be obtained by using the code found in the Blueroom at Fortnite.com/redeem. The code is 8Z35X-3ZWAB-BC57H-EQTQZ.
Players will be able to get the Aliens & UFOs lobby track starting on June 24. If they visit The O2 between June 24 and 27 and participate in the interactive music experience, they will unlock the lobby track. To get to the musical experience, players will have to enter a portal at the Main Stage area of The O2 Island.
The set will last roughly 20 minutes, and players have to complete the entire experience to unlock the reward. The set features songs from the breakout band easy life. The Aliens & UFOs lobby track is a collaboration between the band and Fortnite’s Sound Team. Jumping into the Fortnite x The O2 easy life experience is the only way to obtain this special lobby track before it’s gone for good.
Easy life will begin playing at The O2 at 3: 30 p.m. EST on June 24. Get ready for the musical ride of a lifetime and claim your free exclusive goodies. This is just one of the many events Fortnite has planned for the Summer, so get ready for a season full of themed events and rewards.
