Fortnite New Year 2020 Event

Since some parts of the world have already in 2020, Fortnite’s special event celebrating the new year has gone live.

Like in 2019, Epic Games have a special event planned to ring in the new year and it’s already started to pop up all around the world.

The event will start up again every hour until it is 2020 in every part of the world, so you shouldn’t have to wait until it’s midnight for you to see the event. It’s pretty short and simple, but it certainly is appreciated.

However, if you were hoping for something different from last year’s event, then you’ll be out of luck.

What to expect for the New Year 2020 event

Epic Games decided to run the same event again but changed the “2019” that popped up at the end to a “2020” instead.

If you don’t feel like logging in yourself, you can just see the event in its entirety below. As we said, you’re not missing a whole lot if you don’t log in.

At the very least, we can expect a couple of weapon wraps to appear in the shop that might be worth purchasing.

Considering how elaborate Fortnite events have been in the past, it’s disappointing to see Epic send out the same exact event, but at least it’s something.

With many developers out of the office thanks to the holiday season, it’s possible they didn’t want to run some insane event because if there was an issue, nobody would be around to fix it.

Luckily, the Winterfest event is live and players have the opportunity to scoop up a lot of free gifts. Even if you haven’t played since the start of the event, you’re still able to log on and grab them, so make sure you do that!
