Epic Games has announced the Rainbow Royale, an in-game event meant to celebrate the Fortnite LGBTQIA+ community.
Fortnite wants players to know that everyone is welcome aboard the Battle Bus, and as such, it is throwing an in-game celebration for a portion of its community. The event is called Rainbow Royale, and Epic Games invites everyone to see what’s happening in-game and beyond during this celebration.
To start, Epic Games is giving away free cosmetic items that represent the Fortnite LGBTQIA+ community. As well, various LGBTQIA+ musical artists are featured on the in-game radio when driving vehicles. There are also new Creative Mode items that add a splash of color to any player’s build.
Free Cosmetic Items
For the next week, Fortnite’s Item Shop will have six free items that players can claim and gift to friends. These Rainbow Royale cosmetics can be used to support diversity as well as battle in style. Players will have to manually purchase the items, but they are all listed at a price of 0 V-Bucks.
The free Rainbow Royale cosmetics include the Take A ‘Bow emote, Wild Rainbow Wrap, and four sprays. The sprays are colored to represent a wider spectrum of the Fortnite LGBTQIA+ community.
Fortnite Rainbow Royale Radio changes
Last month, Rocket League added several free tracks to the game through the Love ISLV playlist. Now, these songs have made their way into Fortnite via the game’s own radio stations. Eight different songs from LGBTQIA+ artists can be heard across three different radio stations. Here are the tracks and their respective station:
- Big Freedia – Platinum
- Lil Nas X – Montero
- King Princess – Pain
- Troye Sivan – STUD
- Ben Platt – Imagine
- Daya – Bad Girl
- Hayley Kiyoko – Found My Friends
- Kim Petras – Malibu
Creative rainbow flag
Lastly, Fortnite has added a Rainbow Flag prop to the Creative Mode building assets. This ensures that no matter how you decide to play, you can support the Fortnite LGBTQIA+ community.
Fortnite Season 7 live event date, time, countdown, and Season 8 Start
There will be a Fortnite live event for the end of Season 7. The start date and time for the event, and for Season 8 have been revealed.
Thanks to a recent leak, we now know when the Fortnite Season 7 live event will take place, and when Season 8 starts.
Fortnite is known for its flashy and exciting live events. Whether they’re at the start of a season or the end of one, these events are a spectacle to behold.
These live events have evolved over time. They started with a live rocket launch in Chapter 1 Season 4. And now, players are taken on immersive trips in front of Ariana Grande and Travis Scott.
However, the most exciting events are the ones focused on the game’s storyline. The events that end seasons are among the most anticipated. And luckily, Season 7 has a Fortnite live event.
Will there be a Fortnite Season 7 live event?
Yes, there will be a Fortnite Season 7 live event. The official Fortnite Twitter announced the Season 7 live event today! The event is called Operation Sky Fire and will take place on September 12.

This event will be the conclusion to the battle between The IO and the Aliens. However, we don’t know exactly what will happen. However, we can assume it will be big as it is supposed to make major changes to the Season 8 map.
Season 7 live event date and time
Operation Sky Fire will take place at 4 PM EST on September 12, 2021. Players will want to log in to Fortnite at least 15 to 30 minutes prior to the event. This will ensure that players are able to reserve their spots.
This event will only take place once, so make sure not to miss it. As well, replays of the event will not be available so make sure you are recording during the event.
What will happen during Season 7 live event?
We don’t know for sure, but we can make educated guesses based on the story leading up to the end. We know that Doctor Slone has placed several explosive devices underneath Corny Complex.
The Mothership is currently abducting Corny Complex. Slone’s plan is to detonate the explosives once they are inside the Mothership. However, the event could go one of two ways.
Either Slone will succeed and the Corny Complex will be fully abducted. Or, the Aliens could realize the explosives are underneath Corny Complex and drop the POI. We will also see how the Zero Point plays into the storyline since it was also abducted.
Fortnite Season 8 start date
Fortnite Season 8 will start sometime on September 13th according to leaker iFireMonkey. Epic Games will take the Fortnite servers offline immediately after the live event. This is for downtime for Season 8.
Downtimes usually last 3 – 4 hours, however, this one seems like it’s going to be a fair bit longer. iFireMonkey tweeted an official email he received from Stream Elements stated Season 8 would start on September 13th. This means that the Downtime for Season 8 will be fairly long.

Fortnite Taco store opening in Los Angeles for a limited time
Epic Games is opening an IRL Fortnite taco store in Los Angeles for a limited time in partnership with LeBron James.
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.
When and where to get Fortnite tacos
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.

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.
