Presents

Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 4 is almost over, with the final 14.60 update releasing earlier today.

The new update has added all of the files for the upcoming Galactus event, which is expected to take place on November 28th.

With Season 5 on the horizon, there is a lot to look forward to.

Including Winterfest 2020.

Here's all we know about this years event!

Winterfest 2020 Release Date

No release date for Winterfest 2020 has been given yet.

But the last one was similar to the 14 Days of Fortnite in the summer and began on December 18th, taking players through the new year.

It will likely begin on or around that date too.

Snowman NPC

A Snowman NPC has been found in the game’s files according to @HYPEX on Twitter.

What is unique about this NPC, at least compared to others in Battle Royale so far, is that they have proper voice lines programmed in.

According to another HYPEX Tweet, they seem to suggest the snowman will give quests and grant players with loot.

  • Greetings my Hot blooded friend, which task would you like to perform for me?
  • You Look Hot...
  • Magic Claw
  • Thanks
  • Find Chests
  • Not Yet
  • Find those chests!
  • You won't ever see this
  • Here ya go!

We have no idea what this could mean, or if it could just be a cutscene we get to take part in!

Skins

No news on the skins coming this year yet.

Last year, Epic rewarded players with 2 free skins over the course of Winterfest.

This was the first time Epic granted players free skins to that degree, so maybe we can expect the same again?

We will have to wait and see for more news.

Snow Covered Map

Epic covered the map in snow for Christmas Day last year, so hopefully they do the same this year!

Presents

Last year the main premise around Winterfest was that players were able to open presents each day for two weeks.

All kinds of rewards were inside, including the Millennium Falcon glider.

Hopefully we see some insane rewards this year!
