Over the Christmas period, players were given the chance to take part in a ‘14 Days of Fortnite’ limited time event and challenges. Unfortunately for some fans, the challenges were disabled earlier than expected.
Many players disappointed at the fact that they no longer had the chance to complete the challenges and earn the various cosmetic rewards, voicing their displeasure across various forms of social media.
Epic awarded any players that had completed at least one challenge with the Equalizer glider and released a blog post saying that they would be re-enabling the challenges soon.
“Players who were unable to complete those Challenges will be able to earn all of the rewards they may have initially missed out on,” explained the developers. “All Challenges will be available to complete for the entire duration of the event. Unfortunately, progress on partially completed challenges has to be reset.”
On January 7, the challenges went live once again. Epic have confirmed that all of the challenges are available and that they will remain enabled until January 15 at 3 AM ET(08:00 UTC).
