Fortnite Chapter 2’s holiday-themed event for 2019 is no doubt on the horizon, with Christmas getting ever closer as the days go by, but what can we expect to see added to the game for it? Well, we’ve got five ideas.
The last 12 months have been a wild ride in Fortnite Battle Royale with Epic Games securing a number of amazing crossovers with world-renowned franchises, pulling off some insane events and eventually moving players to a brand new map.
With the bar raised so high heading into the holiday season, the game’s developers have already confirmed that a number of surprises are on the way for players, but haven’t really given any hints about what could be coming soon.
So, let’s take a look at five things we would like to see return this year…
Snow is falling, all around us
We might as well get this one out of the way first because it’s more or less a certainty to be included in Epic’s festive plans for Fortnite – snow.
There’s nothing like celebrating Christmas with the good old white stuff falling from the sky, Christmas lights all around us and that’s exactly what we got last year.
Unlike Season 7, though, it might be a good idea not to build a whole area of the map around a snow biome again. It looked very dated and pretty fast.
Frosty the snowman
A few hiding items have been added to Fortnite Battle Royale since the game was first launched in 2017, including bushes, invisibility items and so on, but nothing quite topped being able to hide in plain sight using a Sneaky Snowman item.
It’s unclear as to whether or not snowmen will take over the map once again, although it’s certainly a possibility.
If snow really is going to fall on the Fortnite Chapter 2 map this year, players might need some help shifting some of it and what would be better than a Quadcrasher equipped with snowplow features?
There’s a real lack of vehicles in the battle royale game right now, with motorboats being the only form of transport, and it’s about time they brought back the fun of being able to boost yourself high into the sky.
It’s very disappointing to see so many cars laying around the island but it’s not possible to enter them to escape the storm. It’s high time they brought back the Quadcrasher!
One of the biggest differences between the original Fortnite island and the one introduced in Chapter 2 is the sheer amount of water that’s been added.
As the cold weather comes in and half of the characters will probably want to start wearing gloves, it would be cool to see many of the water streams completely ice over – just like we saw at the frozen lake that replaced Greasy Grove in Season 7.
There’s a secret vault in Fortnite Chapter 2 that’s remained unopened since players made the switch from one island to the other at the end of Season 10.
Nobody yet knows what’s inside, despite suggestions from YouTuber Ali-A who thinks it could soon be a portal to Save the World mode.
With that being said, imagine it was actually hiding the dreaded Infinity Blade!
There’s absolutely no doubt that this sword’s addition would be hugely controversial among the game’s community, after being vaulted in Season 7 for being way too powerful.
Those who wielded the weapon would be handed full HP and shield just for picking it up, with those bars restoring to full health every time an elimination was picked up – not to mention the deadly leap you could perform when using it!
Even if it was brought back as part of a limited-time mode, it could work out quite well – not interfering with Epic’s competitive plans over the Christmas period, with the game’s developers confirming a Winter Royale will once again take place.
