There have been some hints that a Chinese New Year event is coming to Fortnite.
Update: According to FortniteBR on Twitter, the event will be exclusive to China.
If you are Chinese, and want to know about the event – it will include double XP all day, and rewards will be up for grabs.
This includes a Lunar New Year glider and a wrap that will appear in the Item Shop. pic.twitter.com/cdHnnuHA1K

Fresh off a record-breaking Marshmello concert, it looks like Fortnite already has its eyes set towards the future.
The Chinese New Year is on February 5 and several other video games have events going on, so why not Fortnite?

The above image was found on a Chinese Fortnite site and it seems like there are more clues to back up a possible event.
We know a new item called ‘Bottle Rockets’ are coming soon to Fortnite.
It’s possible these rockets will act as a form of fireworks for players to celebrate the new year.
If this event does end up being real, it would make the most sense to host at Lucky Landing, due to the overall theme of that location.
Nothing has been announced by Epic Games as of yet so take all of this information with a grain of salt.
Time is quickly running out for an event to be launched so look for news in the very near future if Fortnite does plan on running something.
