A Fortnite leak has brought us two New Year’s-themed weapon wraps and some additional details of what to expect from the New Year’s Eve event.

With Christmas behind us, the next major holiday we’ll be celebrating in the Fortnite world is New Year’s. Epic will be hosting a small event to celebrate the end of 2019 and the beginning of 2020.


According to Fortnite data miner @Lucas7Yoshi the event is going to be similar to the one from last year. For those who don’t remember, this means a forced dance party every hour as it becomes 2020 in a new part of the world.

We already saw some leaks that show a disco ball in the sky, which lends credibility to the idea that the 2020 event will be similar to the 2019 event. Hopefully, we won’t be forced to dance for 30 seconds every time this year.

Lucas7Yoshi also found a couple of New Year’s weapons wraps in the game files. The first will reportedly be available through the item shop and the second will come by way of Winterfest challenges. We could also be getting the wrap from last year’s celebration.

Apart from that, we’ll have to wait and see what Epic has in store for us. A reemergence of the Disco Domination LTM would be a welcome sight. A brand-new LTM that would allow us to emote together at a party would be an incredible addition that could rotate based on our time zones – although this might be too much to ask.

What do you hope to see from Fortnite in 2020? Let us know in the comments.
