Epic has posted a surprise blog post that allows players to give each other gifts for a week as a way of testing the system out. Remember, this initial gifting period will only last a week so check it out while you can.

Hey everyone,We know that many of you have been eagerly awaiting a gifting feature and today we’re excited to announce that for a limited time we’ll be offering it with the release of our 6.31 update! This initial gifting period will last one week after the release of the update.

Please note, gifting is not available on iOS devices because Apple’s policies prohibit it.

How Fortnite Gifting works

When you go into the Item Shop and choose an item to purchase, you will now be presented with two options: one saying “Purchase Items” and another saying “Buy As A Gift“.

Select “Buy As A Gift” and you’ll be able to choose which friend you want to send the gift to. You can then add a custom message if you would like. After that, you’re done! Your friend will receive a gift box with the item the next time they log in.
