Welcome to Fortnite Winterfest!
Epic Games (the creator of Fortnite) put out an update patch 11.31 late last night / early this morning, which added a lot of updates to the game… from challenges, weapons, presents, and more..
There is a Winterfest Lodge where you can go and open a new present every day, for 14 days. According to the Epic Games website, presents will include gliders, outfits, wraps, pickaxes, emotes, and more. (You have until Jan. 7 to claim them).
Fortnite also announced LTMs (limited time modes) so you’ll get the chance to try out different events in Battle Royale.
In addition to the presents, Fortnite will be unvaulting weapons throughout the holiday season! The first unvaulting, for ONE DAY ONLY, is the double barrel shotgun.
Fortnite Challenges: With the upcoming in-game challenges players have the opportunity to earn extra experience points and add to the items they could potentially unlock. For day 1, the first challenge will be to deal damage with the snowball launcher. The reward is a new loading screen.
Time for Presents!
That’s right, for every day during Winterfest, Fortnite will give players the chance to claim a different present from the Winterfest Lodge. Here’s the video below covering the day 1 present EspressoMonkey got.
