Here’s everything you need to know about Fortnite New Years 2020 event including the event time.
Similar to 2019, there’s another Fortnite New Years event for 2020. It’s not a huge Fortnite event like the recent Star Wars event, or ‘The End’ Fortnite event to end Chapter 1, but it’s an event nonetheless.
Dataminers actually leaked part of the 2020 Fortnite New Year event a couple of weeks back, but they couldn’t get as much information as they would have liked. There isn’t much of a difference from this the 2019 new year event and the 2020 Fortnite new years event.
Fortnite Event time
The event doesn’t have a set time, it happens every hour until it’s 2020, so you have every chance to watch the small event in-game. That means players don’t have to wait until it’s midnight to witness the new years event in-game.
The event started playing hours ago, and players were quick to post their clips on Reddit, Twitter and Instagram. Here’s what to expect from the event, but it’s not much.
Fortnite New Years 2020 Event
If you didn’t witness the 2019 new years event, or don’t remember what happened, here’s a recap of what it looked like:
When dataminers leaked the Fortnite 2020 new years event, they stated that by the looks of things, it doesn’t seem like anything changed from what was in the files for the 2019 event.
It’s the same event in terms of the disco ball that appears out of the sky, the same sequence of fireworks, the same countdown 10 seconds before the event begins every hour, and the same ending. Obviously, the only difference is that the event says 2020 at the end instead of 2019.
If for whatever reason you can’t login to Fortnite to witness the 2020 new years Fortnite event, you won’t be missing much, but here’s a clip of the entire event just in case you want to view it if you didn’t experience last years event.
Although there’s nothing special when it comes to the event, at least Epic provided a free new years 2020 Fortnite wrap as a free cosmetic from the presents in the Winterfest Lodge/Cabin.
Not only is there the 2020 wrap from the Winterfest present, players can also earn a 2020 Fortnite glider for free by completing the second to last Winterfest challenge. To earn the Fortnite 2020 glider, players will need to light a Frozen Firework found on beaches in Sweaty Sands, Craggy Cliffs, or Dirty Docks. Here’s a look at the glider:
The Fortnite Winterfest event will end on January 6th, so be sure to drop in and get your challenges done before then in order to get all the free cosmetics from the challenges and presents.
