After initially announcing compensation for the 14 Days of Fortnite event snafu, Epic Games have now announced that they will be bringing back the entirety of the event. 

The 14 Days of Fortnite event ran through the new year and gave players a chance to unlock special items and take part in new and returning LTMs during each day of the event. 

It was originally announced that the challenges would still be live after the end of the event to give players a chance to catch up on any items they might have missed during the holidays, but once the 14th day ended, players were shocked to see all of the challenges had gone. 

On January 2, Epic Games announced that they would be issuing the final reward, the Equalizer Glider, to any player who completed any challenged during the event. 

After further discussion, however, Epic has now made the announcement that the entire event will be returning next week to give players the chance at obtaining any items they might have missed along the way. 

The event will start “early next week,” presumably along with the v7.10 update #3 on January 8, and run through January 15 at 12am PST / 3am EST / 8am UTC.

In addition to the challenges, Epic Games also stated that some of the LTMs that released during the event would be making a return, as well. 

For players who might have completed some of the challenges, but no others, Community Manager Sean ‘MrPopoTFS’ Hamilton has offered a key clarification.

Be sure to check out our official guide on all 14 of the challenges for the event to prepare for its return next week!

UPDATE ON 14 DAYS OF FORTNITE

By The Fortnite Team

We communicated an incorrect end date for the 14 Days of Fortnite event and did not feel the Equalizer Glider compensation was the right approach. After further discussion, we’ve decided to bring back this event early next week through January 15 at 3 AM ET(0800 UTC). We’ll also be enabling some of the most popular Limited Time Modes that were available during the event.

Players who were unable to complete those Challenges will be able to earn all of the rewards they may have initially missed out on. All Challenges will be available to complete for the entire duration of the event. Unfortunately, progress on partially completed challenges has to be reset.

Thanks so much for your patience and understanding!

Fortnite Galactus skin leaked ahead of Season 4 finale event

Just days ahead of Fortnite’s Galactus live event on December 1, data-miners have leaked a highly anticipated Galactus skin without spoiling event details. 

Galactus, the “Devourer of Worlds,” has been approaching Fortnite’s island and his unavoidable arrival is finally nigh. In a one-time-only, live Season 4 “Nexus War” finale on December 1, Marvel’s world-eater and Epic Games’ player base will collide. 

While fans currently know that the gigantic, cosmic entity is making his way to the Island and that something will be happening on the aforementioned date at 4 p.m. ET, few details are available.

Fortunately for impatient aficionados of the battle royale, dataminers have leaked a Galactus skin that should be coming to the game’s shop with a bundle at some point.

The Galactus skin doesn’t seem massive, but it’s definitely spooky.

While it’s unclear exactly how similar this skin will be to the teased images of a gargantuan, shadowy Galactus shared by Epic themselves, the skin most certainly presents an imposing figure. 

Dressed in glistening jet black and red, the skin features regal, villainous armor bookended by chunky boots and a massive helmet. Eagle-eyed fans might even notice a particularly smug smile sitting across the infamous villain’s purple face.

It remains uncertain if this skin will be available for purchase and, if so, when it will be. But leakers like ‘ximton’ have discovered files indicating it could be part of a bundle. Still, in order to save fans from leaks, dataminers have remained largely quiet about specific event details.

Fortnite Galactus event – what we know so far

A variety of leaks have already surfaced, showing a gigantic Galactus and teasing the possibilities of a major battle between Marvel’s heroes and the cosmic world-eater. But Epic Games have tried to keep things on the low, only confirming that “the fate of all Reality lies in the balance.”

As mentioned earlier, the finale event begins on Tuesday, December 1 at 4 p.m. ET (1 p.m. PT, 9 p.m. GMT) and its exact duration is unknown. Epic have advised players to download the latest update (14.60) and Houseparty (which is integrated with Fortnite to allow for live video chat).
