Is 14 Days of Fortnite coming back in Chapter 2?

Epic Games have given Fortnite Battle Royale fans periods of non-stop challenges and rewards in the past, so will 14 Days of Fortnite be making a return in Chapter 2? 

The developers of the free-to-play title have added a number of new weekly tasks to the game since its last major update on October 15, which saw the introduction of a new map and, of course, a whole host of fresh locations.

With the snow not as prevalent on the current island and the likes of Polar Peak, Frosty Flights, and Happy Hamlet no longer in the picture, many players will be wondering if the map will be turning into a winter wonderland with the beginning of Season 2.

Epic GamesThe only snow to be found in Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 1 is on mountain tops.

Those who regularly jump from the Battle Bus will remember that not too long ago the game’s development team was given a summer break, sparking the 14 days of Summer event in June.

During this time, weekly updates to the battle royale froze and players were given the chance to grind through a number of different missions.

With that event in mind and the likelihood of yet another Christmas break being handed to Epic Games’ employees this year, we’re likely to see another set of 14 Days of Fortnite challenges announced in the near future. Or, at least, something very similar.

Leaker Lucas7yoshi has also predicted a winter Fortnite theme could be on the cards, after discovering the start date of Season 2 in the game’s files.

Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 2 is expected to come to a close on December 12, according to its developer’s website, meaning that their official timeline lines up perfectly for a new season to feature a fresh winter theme. Last year’s event started on December 19.

Epic Games have kept their cards very close to their chest during the course of the first season of the new game, not releasing patch notes when changes are made – preventing players from being able to keep up to date with new content.

However, that hasn’t stopped them from shuffling the pack more than once already.

Epic GamesCould we see the Fortnite Chapter 2 covered in snow just like last year?

With so much water having been added to the map, as well as other features involving interaction with rivers, it remains uncertain about what will happen should the snow and ice reappear.

We could see fishing temporarily disabled, the motorboats wouldn’t be able to run anymore, and the dreaded slippery ice that was introduced back in Season 7 could return.

Whether or not any of that comes to fruition remains to be seen, but fans will certainly be expecting holiday-themed challenges as we approach the game’s next major update. With Season 2 expected in mid-December, the 14 Days of Fortnite challenges could kick off soon after, running right through to the New Year.

We’ll just have to wait and see.

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.
