Epic Games has announced a new holiday event coming to Fortnite, bringing daily challenges and with a single free reward every day, as well as new and returning LTM’s in Battle Royale.

Announced alongside the release of the v7.10 update, the 14 Days of Fortnite will begin on December 19, and has new content and features for both Battle Royale and Save the World fans.

New holiday items like the Snowball launcher and a ‘holiday-lit’ legendary bush will also be added to battle royale, plus a makeover for the battle bus to make it more festive too.

The challenges themselves have not been revealed, nor the new LTM’s, but Epic Games never lack creativity when it comes to these kind of things, so will no doubt have some surprises up their sleeves.

For skin lovers, there is also new and returning holiday skins coming to the item shop – possibly these could be the winter themed remakes of classic skins that have been leaked.

Save the World will similarly get new quests every day for the duration of the event, and will receive a free Upgrade Llama pinata in the store every day too.

Tottenham Hotspur player Dele Alli has roasted England international teammate Kieran Trippier over his gaming skills, bluntly calling him “really bad” at Fortnite.

Alli has recently become a global ambassador for Excel, one of the 10 League of Legends teams in the LEC and a powerhouse of UK esports, having made clear his love of gaming in recent years with his streams on Twitch.

Dele sat down to talk about his love of gaming with Excel, discussing FIFA, Fortnite, and some of the other top footballers he’s played with — but had a few less-than-savoury thoughts on his former Spurs teammate’s abilities.

After being asked who’s “not very good at gaming,” Trippier fell immediately into the firing line.

Dele joins a growing list of footballers getting involved in the esports scene in one way or another.

With a laugh at his friend’s misfortune, Dele revealed that the former Spurs man, unfortunately, falls into that category.

“Kieran Trippier was very late to gaming” Dele said, offering his former teammate somewhat of a lifeline. Before cracking up laughing again, the star added: “He jumped on it and he’s got a lot better but, at the start…”

Dele continued: “He joined Fortnite when we had all been playing for a while, and it was the first time he had played with a controller… so if you tell him to press X, he wouldn’t know which was X.”

Not content with letting his name be slandered in the gaming world, Kieran himself quickly responded with some laughing emojis, backing himself up by clarifying that he actually “wasn’t that bad,” though it doesn’t sound great for the full back.

Now, surely, fans will be desperate to see Dele and Kieran go head-to-head with one another to see if the latter is really as bad as he sounds.
