Epic announces 14-day long Fortnite Winterfest 2020 holiday season event

14 Days, 14 Free Presents

This year's holiday season won't be any different for Fortnite players as Epic has always celebrated winter, bringing players content updates, challenges, and cosmetic rewards.

Epic has recently announced the Fortnite Winterfest 2020: a 14-day long event with a mixture of challenges and rewards, one each day, that gives a great chance to play some fun LTMS and mini-games with friends.

Very little information about Winterfest 2020 has been shared, but thanks to longtime Fortnite data miner HYPEX here's what we have so far.

Fortnite Winterfest 2020 Skins and Items

Fortnite data miner Hypex provided some leaks of future content that may come in Season 5. One of those elements was a “Snowman NPC.” (NPC- Non-Playable Character). If the NPC comes to Fortnite it will spawn somewhere holiday-related, and offer quests, bounties, and upgrades.

ShinaBR another popular data miner has leaked an image of a snowman skin called Snowmado. The image doesn't come with an Item shop tag which means that the skin may be free throughout 14 days of Fortnite Winterfest 2020 like we saw last season.

Fortnite Winterfest 2020: Release Date

Winterfest 2020 should be releasing with the V15.10 patch notes. As of now, we do not have a release date but last year's Christmas event came on 18th December. However Epic has said that the event will go on for 14 days.

Apart from the leaks, Internet sleuths predict that Epic may bring back items like Presents, Ice Machines, Snowball Launchers, and more. Epic may also give us some free cosmetics as they did with the last season.
