The latest Fortnite update has brought gamers the Rise of Midas, bringing special quests, game modes, and competitions. Here's what you can experience during Rise of Midas in Fortnite. 

Rise of Midas Quests

Midas has escaped from The Underworld and is accusing Brutus of treason. Now, Midas and his crew are attempting to get onto The Marigold yacht to escape Hades' wrath. If you follow this storyline and complete the Rise of Midas quests, you will be able to unlock in-game rewards.

Rise o Midas quest rewards

The Quests are split into five phases, each going live sequentially. All the phases will be available until Rise of Midas ends (Apr. 2, 2024, at 9 AM ET):

  • Midas Rises: available right now!

  • Jules vs. the Golden Touch: available March 25 at 9 AM ET
  • Myths of Midas: available March 27 at 9 AM ET

When you complete these six quests, you'll unlock the Cerebrus Medallion spray. If you complete 12, you'll unlock the Rose of Avarice Back Bling. Then at 18 completed quests, you'll unlock the Queen in Gold glider. 

Floor is Lava is Back in Fortnite

During Rise of Midas, you can play a returning popular game mode: Floor is Lava. But there's a twist. Unlike the previous versions of Floor is Lava, this time you'll see items rom Chapter 5 Season 2 — and gold lava. 

There are also Floor is Lava-specific quests that will go live sequentially. When you complete them, you'll unlock in-game rewards like the Lightning King and Zeus Medallion sprays as well as the Gilded Vengeance Pickaxe.
