Microsoft has announced that the company’s retail stores in the US, Canada, Puerto Rico, and Australia will be hosting Fortnite Fridays community nights. The events begin tomorrow, April 20th from 5:30 p.m. – 9 p.m. local time, with the promise of giving gamers more chances to meet up and play the popular sandbox survival game in person.

Anyway, everyone who attends each week will be eligible to take home the grand prize of gift cards applicable towards 2,500 V-Bucks in Fortnite: Battle Royale.
