The first decorations for Fortnite’s Holiday event have begun landing on the battle royale island – and more will be on the way. 

One of the major ways that Epic Games has been able to have the success they’ve had with Fortnite is the ability to keep the battle royale title topically. 

While it has it’s own in-game seasons, real-life events are taken into account and delivered in the form of skins, challenges, or even full-blown parts of the map. We’ve already seen Fortnite deliver it’s first long holiday-themed event back in season seven, and with Chapter 2 in full swing, the winter period is coming back to the battle royale island.

Epic GamesFortnite Season Seven’s holiday event was one of the game’s most popular to date.

German Fortnite content creator Hey Stan noted that shipment of Christmas decorations had arrived at Dirty Docks back on November 21. “The Christmas delivery is there in Dirty Docks,” he tweeted.

Hidden inside some of the containers are Christmas trees already dressed in lights, while others have small wooden carvings that have lightbulbs on as well. Of course, these are harvestable for wood so if you don’t find them at Dirty Docks quickly, you may lose out on seeing them.

While season seven had the map, at one point, covered in snow, it could be a different story in terms of Chapter 2.

As of writing, there haven’t been any hints about a possible weather change to snow, however, we could be getting some fog at the very least. Reddit user Romulousvoid noted in the FortniteBR subreddit that using epic setting in replay mode would show a bit of fog.

However, some fans stated that it could have just been an error. “Don’t they use fog in Sneaky Silencers LTM? Could be a bug,” asked ShortSonic01.

We know that the first season of Fortnite Chapter 2 will be extended for the holiday period and there will also be a live event with new content rolled out – likely similar to 14 Days of Fortnite.

However, it remains to be seen as to what else the developers have in store for fans across the end of December.

A new glitch with the Fortnite Battle Bus has been found, letting you ‘drive’ the vehicle towards Galactus ahead of Season 4’s in-game Nexus War event.

The hype for Fortnite’s Season 4 live-action event is now starting to build, after Galactus has reappeared outside of the battle royale island ahead of the final showdown on November 30.

Nexus War will likely feature all of the superhero characters such as Wolverine, Thor, and others that have recently been added to Fortnite, as they face off against the Marvel supervillain.

It was previously hinted that, during the upcoming event, Fortnite players will also need to “join the fight” against Galactus by learning how to drive the Battle Bus and a new glitch has been found allowing players to do exactly that.

Fortnite YouTuber Glitch King has revealed a clever trick that players can do to stay in the Battle Bus after the start of a game and ‘drive’ right up to where Galactus currently rests.

The content creator explained that after entering any limited-time mode where the Battle Bus paths towards the Marvel character, you need to briefly disconnect your internet connection just before the Bus kicks you out at the end.

The Fortnite vehicle will continue to move towards Galactus with your character still inside, giving you an up-close look at the Devourer of Worlds.

While it is likely that players will have much more control of the Battle Bus when it does become a feature in the event, it can give players an early feel for what the Nexus War might look like.

As of now, it remains unclear what exactly will happen during the Nexus War event but there have been a few Fortnite leaks hinting at yet another Black Hole ending to the in-game event.

Fortnite fans won’t have to wait too much longer to find out for sure, however, with only a short while remaining until Season 4 comes to a close and the Nexus War event finally takes place.
