A 400 percent match XP increase is pretty crazy, but for those getting close to the top tier, this weekend should be a great opportunity to unlock those final sweet in-game items.
Aside from the start date, no further details have been released at this time. But since it's less than a week away we can expect some teases to start appearing. The biggest one so far has been the mysterious purple cube, which has in the last couple of days migrated to and melted into Loot Lake, turning the water into a trampoline.
What other fun and games are in store only time will tell, but knowing Epic Games, it's unlikely it'll be too long before we see something.
