Fortnite’s Rainbow Royale celebrations return with free items with another event in September

We’re halfway through Pride month, but the celebrations don’t stop yet. Now the hugely popular battle royale, Fortnite, is entering the fray to commemorate Pride Month. To celebrate the LGBTQIA+ community, Fortnite’s popular Rainbow Royale is returning, but in September. It seems a bit odd that the event is coming back a few months after the Pride celebrations have ended, but then what is the reason you need to celebrate Pride? Any time is ideal to raise awareness and include the LGBTQIA+ community.

Of course, that doesn’t mean there isn’t anything happening in Fortnite right now to celebrate Pride. Epic has brought back items from last year’s Rainbow Royale to the Item Shop. Plus, all of these are available for free! All players need to do is jump into the game and claim all of these items by June 16 at 8 PM ET. Here is a list of available free items that can be used to color the island in all shades of the rainbow:

  • Four Rainbow Royale sprays that encompass the vibrancy of the event – Vibrant Heart, Vibrant Llama, Vibrant Boogie and Vibrant Star
  • The Sunshine and Rainbows envelope
  • Grab a bow emote

While we don’t know much about this year’s Rainbow Royale, here’s a quick recap of what happened last July. Fortnite saw the addition of rainbow flag props and pieces from Love ISLV’s playlist of LGBTQIA+ artists such as Lil Nas X, King Princess, Ben Platt, Daya, Kim Petras, etc Expect the same, if not more, fun to return with Rainbow Royale 2022!

Show your support for the LGBTQIA+ community and download Fortnite for free via the official website for Android users or use XCloud if you want to play on iOS. Don’t forget to claim the free items before tomorrow.
