Epic Games have officially announced the Fortnite Winterfest Christmas event.
In the v11.30 Fortnite update, dataminers leaked the upcoming Christmas event. This year, the event will be called Winterfest instead of 14 days of Fortnite, which we had for Christmas last year.
The challenges, rewards, and other features including the daily item and weapon unvaulting, old LTM’s returning each day and more. Yesterday, dataminers leaked the animated lobby screen along with the free presents game feature for Winterfest.
Epic have now officially announced the Winterfest in a blog post today.
‘Tis the freez-on!
Welcome to Winterfest. Throughout the holiday season, we’re getting festive with free gifts, new Challenges, and more.
WINTERFEST PRESENTS… PRESENTS
Drop in the in-game lobby to see a brand new snowflake tab. By clicking on it, you’ll be taken to the Winterfest Lodge.
Every day for 14 days, you may unwrap a new Present at the Lodge. Inside are two Outfits, two Gliders, two Pickaxes, two Wraps, one Emote, and more — all exclusive to this years’ Winterfest!
You might be wondering: how do I get all the things? Just prepare your shaking and guessing skills — the Presents are free for everyone to open. The Lodge is full of Presents, and each day you can return and unwrap a new one. If you miss any days, simply come back before January 7 to open them up.
CHECK YOUR STOCKING FOR WINTERFEST CHALLENGES
Don’t forget the stocking stuffers! Hanging on the fireplace of the Winterfest Lodge is a stocking full of more rewards to unlock. Check your stocking each day to get a new Challenge that you can complete for rewards and XP. And as with the Presents, don’t worry if you miss a day — visit the stocking before January 7 and grab all the goodies waiting for you.
