Fortnite Winterfest 2020 is expected to come soon. Here’s everything we know about the event including dates, leaks, and more.

Fortnite Winterfest 2020 is right around the corner. Here’s everything we know.

Epic Games have always celebrated the holiday season in Fortnite, bringing players content updates, challenges, and cosmetic rewards. We don’t expect 2020 to be any different, as we prepare ourselves to unlock all of these new holiday-themed additions.

Ahead, we’ll give you a glimpse of everything we know about Winterfest 2020 so far. Check back later for updates, as we’ll be keeping this article up to date with all of the latest Winterfest leaks, rumors, and more.

When does Fortnite Winterfest 2020 start?

We don’t have an exact date of when Winterfest 2020 will begin, but we do have some clues based on past seasonal content.

The original Fortnite Christmas event lasted from December 20 to January 2. Last year, Winterfest ran from December 18 to January 6. We expect something similar to the latter this year.

With updates traditionally coming on Tuesday or Thursday, we expect Winterfest 2020 to begin on December 15-17 and run until January 5-7.

Fortnite Winterfest leaks & rumors

We’ve already seen a ton of leaks and rumors regarding Winterfest 2020 – dating back to before Season 5 even began.

Back in October, Fortnite data miner Hypex provided some leaks of future content that may come in Season 5. One of those elements was a “Snowman NPC.”

At the time, no one knew what this meant. Now, after playing Season 5, it’s fair to assume that a new snowman NPC will come to Fortnite, spawn somewhere holiday-related, and offer quests, bounties, and upgrades.

ShiinaBR, another Fortnite data miner, leaked an image of an upcoming Fortnite skin that, reportedly, doesn’t come with an Item Shop tag. He took this to mean that Snowmando – as the skin is named – could be a free skin for 14 Days of Fortnite like we saw last season.

Whether or not this is the case, it stands to reason that Snowmando will be the rumored Snowman NPC that will come to Fortnite this Winterfest season.

Epic Games have been focused on the Flopper loot pool in recent seasons, so it makes sense that they’ll be giving this a change for Winterfest, as well.

According to LunakisLeaks, We’ll be getting a “Christmas Flopper” this Winterfest season. As to what it will do: your guess is as good as ours.

Along with these leaks, we have rumors of returning items like Presents, Ice Machines, Snowball Launchers, and more.

Hopefully, Epic give us some free cosmetics as they did with the last season. The Star Wars Sith back bling is still one of the most popular cosmetic items in the game – a year later.

We’ll keep you posted with everything we learn ahead of the 2020 Winterfest patch. Make sure to follow us on Twitter, so you never miss anything, @FortniteINTEL.

Thanks to a recent leak, we now have details regarding the end of Chapter 3 Season 1, including the specifics of a live event.

Fortnite is known for its flashy and exciting live events. Whether they’re at the start of a season or the end of one, these events are a spectacle to behold.

These live events have evolved over time. They started with a live rocket launch in Chapter 1 Season 4. And now, players are taken on immersive trips in front of Ariana Grande and Travis Scott.

However, the most exciting events are the ones focused on the game’s storyline. The events that end seasons are among the most anticipated, and usually draw in the most players.

Will there be a Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2 live event?

With the final update for Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2, we now have confirmation that there will be a live event at the end of the season!

With the Resistance fighting back against the IO and taking back POIs, the waging war is pretty easy to follow. The live event will be the culmination of the season long war between the IO and the Resistance.

What will happen during the Season 2 live event?

All season, the Resistance has pushed back the IO’s invading forces. With the latest update, the IO have lost control of every POI except Command Cavern and a new POI at Loot Lake.

This new POI is home to yet another Doomsday Device that the IO intends to set off. The Season 2 live event will likely focus on stopping this device. It is a very similar tower to that of Midas’ Doomsday Device in Chapter 2 Season 2.

Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3 start date

Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2 is slated to end on June 3, 2022. This means Season 3 could start as early as June 4.

However, notable leaker Shinna believes there will be an extended period of downtime between the seasons. Usually, players participate in the live event and can hop into the servers a couple of hours later. But that may not be the case this time around.

Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 1 Wild Week leaked: Primal Bows unvaulted, Bownanza challenges, and more

Fortnite Wild Weeks are back, and the first Chapter 3 Season 1 Wild Week focuses on the use of Primal Bows from Chapter 2 Season 6.

Epic Games is bringing back Wild Weeks at the end of Chapter 3 Season 1, and we have the details for the upcoming Fortnite event.

Wild Weeks have become a tradition in Fortnite that spices up the end of each season. For three weeks, Epic Games gives each week a specific theme that drastically changes one aspect of the game.

In the past, we’ve seen Wild Weeks geared toward fishing, fire, and mobility. Thanks to a few leaks, we have an idea of what to expect when it comes to the first Wild Week in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 1.

Fortnite Mythic Bows Unstable Explosive

Fortnite Bownanza Wild Week

According to iFireMonkey, the first Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 1 Wild Week is called Bownanza week. It will focus on the use of bows, specifically Primal Bows introduced in Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 6.

If this Wild Week is to be like the ones in the past, players will see a drastic increase in the spawn rate of bows. However, since crafting isn’t of use in Chapter 3 Season 1, it will be interesting to see if players can craft new bows.

Fortnite Bownanza week challenges

The Bownanza Wild Week challenges have already been leaked. The tweet below shows all six challenges.

Each challenge will reward the player with 8,000 experience points. Like in the past, the Wild Week challenges will be a great way to reach Battle Pass level 100 and beyond.

That’s currently everything we know about Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 1’s first Wild Week. We will keep this story updated as more information becomes available.

Is Fortnite Season 8 the end of Chapter 2?

Fans are starting to believe that Season 8 will be the end of Fortnite Chapter 2. Let’s take a look at all of the reasons this might be true.

Players are starting to believe that Fortnite Season 8 is the end of Chapter 2, but do their theories hold up?

To people who don’t play Fortnite, it may just seem like another Battle Royale. However, hardcore fans know that Fortnite has rich lore.

Fortnite uses unconventional storytelling to carry its narrative. While the goal of the game is to be the last player standing, The Island tells a story of its own. Fortnite has split its story into two chapters and splits those chapters into seasons.

Now, players believe that Fortnite’s second chapter is coming to an end. We will dive into context clues, cosmetic descriptions, and blog posts to see if Season 8 really is the end of Chapter 2.

Fortnite Crew Season 9 Description

A lot of players believe that a single line of text in the latest Fortnite Crew promo debunks the Chapter 3 theories. In the November 2021 Crew Pack, a promo image states players will have access to the Chapter 2 Season 9 Battle Pass.

However, only the in-game promo image references Chapter 2 Season 9. It doesn’t appear anywhere on the official blog post.

That being said, it is unlike Epic Games to reference a specific season if it does not plan to have that season. As well, Epic could have just said “Next Battle Pass” and left off “For Chapter 2 Season 9”.

Choice wording and coincidence points to Chapter 3

Now, let’s get into why players think Season 8 is the end of Fortnite Chapter 2. The first reason is the choice of wording Donald Mustard used in a tweet. He was expressing his excitement for Fortnite’s future.

In classic Mustard fashion, he stated that Chapter 2 Season 8, and the two after it are his favorite parts. Fans of Fortnite find it odd that he wouldn’t just say Seasons 9 and 10. This leads players to believe that the two chapters following Season 8 will be in Chapter 3.

As well, many players have analyzed videos from popular Fortnite content creators. Epic Games sometimes gives larger creators a heads up when it comes to drastic changes to the game. This time, theorists are pointing towards videos from SypherPK and TaborHill.

Both creators recently uploaded videos expressing why they think Chapter 3 will be here soon. But even more interesting is that both videos ended with the creators saying “Catch you on the flipside.” This could be a coincidence, but fans think it’s proof that Chapter 3 is coming soon.

Cosmetic descriptions and hotfixes hint at Fortnite Chapter 3

A recent hotfix updated the Blackhole that appeared at the end of Chapter 1. This fix readded the code that loads players directly into the Blackhole. The Blackhole has been updated frequently over the last couple of seasons, but is it time for the updates to be put to use?

As well, there are a bunch of new cosmetics from Chapter 2 Season 8 that make it seem as if this really is the end. We won’t go into all of them, but the tweet below from HYPEX shows all of the Chapter 3 clues.

Various fans have also noted that Fortnite Chapter 2 has already exceeded the length of Chapter 1. Adding two more Seasons after Season 8 would make Chapter 2 incredibly long.

But what do you think? Is Season 8 really the end of Fortnite Chapter 2, or is Chapter 3 two more seasons away? Let us know your thoughts on Twitter via @FortINTEL.
