Fortnite gets its own Valentine’s Day cards for anyone to download

Epic has another treat for Valentine’s Day, one that comes in the form of digital and printable cards for players to send their friends. The new offering features a number of popular and love-themed Fortnite characters, including Cuddle Team Leader, Lovely, Stoneheart, Love Ranger, Wild Card, and more. Players can download them now.

The Hearts Wild event to celebrate Valentine’s Day is still underway, giving players access to new emoticons, banners, wraps, and more. The Valentine’s Day cards are part of this overall theme, and they’re free for anyone to download and send digitally or print and give to someone in person.

Each card features the aforementioned characters, as well as a blank space for you to write a message and your name. The images can be saved from Epic’s website here, where there’s also a link to download them all in a ZIP file for printing at home.

If you haven’t yet, you can sign into Fortnite to play the weekly Hearts Wild quests. The rewards include a number of Valentine’s Day-themed items. Epic notes that because these are ‘Epic’ quests, they will remain available for the rest of the season — meaning you don’t have to rush to get them done in the next few days.

If you complete at least one of the epic season five Hearts Wild quests, you’ll unlock the Breathless Blades pickaxe, which features pink blades. There’s also a Hearts Wild event planned for teams to battle it out in different regions for glory and an array of goodies.

Digital Trends may earn a commission when you buy through links on our site.

A tablet can make one of the best Valentine’s Day gifts, and Amazon makes some of the most affordable ones (compare and contrast with these tablet deals). Right now, at Amazon, you can score $25 off the 8-inch Fire HD 8 tablet, with 32 GB. It’s down to $65, a significant drop from its regular price of $90. Give that special someone what they really want this year — A tablet opens up a world of apps, browsing, and content, for way less.

Some great news; now that so many of us are spending so much time on Zoom and other video chatting apps, The Fire HD8 has front and rear 2MP cameras for 720p HD video recording (and pics, too). This is not only great news for chatting to friends and family, or for work calls, but you’ll know you can record great video whenever you want. There’s a built-in microphone, and this tablet comes with dual-band Wi-Fi support, not to mention Dolby Atmos audio with stereo speakers — so all your recorded content, and other videos, will look and sound amazing.

But this tablet has so many other uses; they’re inexhaustible. The Fire HD 8 opens up an entire world of e-books and audiobooks (and because it’s an Amazon product, you’ll have easy access to their selections, as well as access to Audible). And there’s also access to all the great content that you’d find through other tablets, like streaming music, and video from Amazon Prime, as well as Netflix, HBO Max, Disney+, and all your favorite streamers. The Fire HD 8 also connects you with your social media accounts, as well as web browsing, email, and more — it’s got many of the features we’ve come to expect from the best tablets.

And of course, like all the best Amazon products, this tablet has built-in Alexa, so your access can be touchless. This is especially helpful when you want to use Fire HD 8’s Show mode. It’s like having an Amazon Echo built in. Using Show Mode, you can watch the live feed from your Alexa-compatible security cameras or Ring Doorbell (and communicate via two-way-audio), as well as manage your smart home, from temperature control to smart lights. How awesome is that? There’s even Game Mode for maximum enjoyment while gaming, as well as USB-C for faster charging.

Who wouldn’t want this amazing tablet for Valentine’s Day? It’s an e-reader, content center, and smart home hub all in one. Other tablets can cost upward of $800. Right now, at Amazon, the Fire HD 8 is only $65. Act now, just in time for Valentine’s Day, and you can get $25 off from its regular price of $90. What are you waiting for?
