Fortnite has delivered yet another in-game spectacle that many fans celebrating the year’s end enjoyed during the New Year 2020 event.

Epic Games are well known for creating some of the most spectacular in-game events in Fortnite for holidays and collaborations as seen with the latest Star Wars crossover.

It was no different for New Years’ Eve 2020, as the developers lined up something special once again for their players who were celebrating the turn of the decade.

New Year’s 2020 in-game event

Although the New Year’s event was not as big as the Star Wars event, or ‘The End’ Fortnite event that saw the close of the game’s first chapter, many fans still gathered online to witness what was prepared.

The in-game New Year’s event did not differ too much from when Fortnite celebrated it in 2019, as a giant disco ball descended from a rift in the sky once again.

After a few seconds of music and celebration, the giant disco ball exploded into fireworks which spelled out 2020 along with an image of the iconic Fortnite llama.

Weapon skins and cosmetic items

The event kicked off early in the day on December 31 and repeated every hour until the new year had finally arrived.

As part of the New Year’s celebration, Epic Games also provided fans with a free cosmetic item in the form of a ‘New Year 2020’ weapon wrap.

Epic GamesPlayers are able to claim the ‘New Year 2020’ weapon wrap from the Winterfest Lodge.

Along with the new weapon wrap, players can also unlock earn a 2020 Fortnite glider for free by completing the Winterfest challenge on Day 15 once it is unlocked.

The glider sticks with the celebratory theme of the New Year as its design mirrors the firework display from the in-game event.

Epic Games.The 2020 glider will be available as a reward to players who complete Day 15’s Winterfest challenge.

The Fortnite Winterfest event is expected to end on January 7, so be sure to log-in if you still have rewards left to claim or any challenges to complete.


Epic Games tease more “exclusive” content coming for Fortnite Crew members

According to a brand-new leaked survey, Epic Games have been asking players what they might want to see added as a feature to the Fortnite Crew subscription service, hinting that they’re open to changing up what’s included in the future.

If you took a look at the Fortnite Crew subscription service and thought that it didn’t include enough or didn’t include much that you’d be interested in, Epic Games may be heeding those concerns.

According to Fortnite leaker ‘iFireMonkey,’ a brand-new survey sent out to Fortnite players might indicate that the developer might be open to changing up what a Fortnite Crew subscription comes with. Specifically, the survey asks players to rank what benefits would be most or least important to be added to the service.

Epic Games
Currently, the Fortnite Crew service includes an exclusive skin, some V-Bucks and a free battle pass.

The question itself features a wide range of choices. Some are simply new ways to purchase Fortnite Crew subscriptions, like the ability to buy the service in retail stores and multi-month options.

There are also more gameplay-centric choices, including everything from custom matchmaking options to cosmetics that show off how long you’ve had a subscription. Beyond that, there’s even a choice for a monthly physical mailer with additional rewards outside of what’s given digitally.

Despite this development, it remains to be seen if the company will actually implement any changes. While this survey might indicate that the company is, at the very least, open to adding features to the service, it’s important to remember that it’s not a guarantee that they will.

Currently, the service includes a free battle pass, an exclusive Crew pack, 1000 V-Bucks and an exclusive Member’s Only emote (at least for a limited time), so the implementation of any one of the features listed in the leaked survey would be a welcome addition, especially after its rocky start.

For any updates regarding new features in the Fortnite Crew service and Fortnite in general, keep it locked to Dexerto.
