A Fortnite leaker has revealed what appears to be the new, upcoming loading screens for the battle royale title, and they have a very festive theme for the holiday season.

Fortnite often releases new loading screens to give players some visual content while they’re waiting for their match to start up, usually pertaining to some of the new content they’re releasing at the time or any important external events.

One of those important external events is the holiday season, with Christmas becoming a Fortnite event in its own right, and these new loading screens get right into the spirit of things.

Epic GamesEpic Games have got their holidays well under way, bringing players brand new skins and designs to show off in the battle royale arena.

Thanks to leaker HYPEX, we can see the three new loading screens coming to the game and they all have a certain air of Christmas cheer around them.

One of them depicts a Santa-hat-wearing Bulldog standing outside a Farmer’s Market as snow falls around him, while the other two look like an ornamental Christmas decoration and a group of sinister-looking nutcrackers.

These new festive loading screens will likely be joined by weapon wraps, character skins, emotes, and more in the coming weeks. It is unknown, however, when each of them will be available to unlock in-game.

Usually, they’re released on a weekly basis alongside the challenges, with a hidden clue included every time.

Fortnite is never afraid to release festive content, always embracing this time of year with loading screens, skins and even new areas of the map to explore in recent years.

You’ll see them do similar things around other major events, such as at Halloween or with the release of major Hollywood blockbusters – for example, Avengers: Endgame and the upcoming Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.

Of course, these new loading screens are yet to be confirmed by Epic Games, but HYPEX has a notoriously good track record at getting these things right and their release seems more likely than not.


Fortnite leaker claims mods are coming soon

Fortnite could soon be getting support for mods if a claim from a reliable leaker is to be believed. 

Since being released over three years ago, Fortnite’s new content and changes have all come from Epic Games. The developers had added everything from new weapons to a new map, as well as unique vehicles that you won’t see anywhere else.

Though, Fortnite players have gone above and beyond with their own creations in Creative mode – using all the tools at their disposal to create wacky and huge maps that provide hours of fun. 

However, Epic Games could soon be handing players the power to use mods in Fortnite to make things a little more interesting.

Epic Games have had control over all of Fortnite’s content, but that could soon change,

Reliable leaker Lucas7Yoshi made the claim on Twitter on November 23, but couldn’t explain just how far the modding capabilities would stretch. 

“Modding support will be coming to Fortnite…,” the Fortnite dataminer said, before following that up with a little bit more info amid a myriad of questions from his followers.

“Confidence for this is its 100% in the works,” he added. “To what extent you could mod the game or what you could do with it I’m not sure. But it’s definitely by definition ‘modding’.”

It could, very well, be the case that Epic makes it possible for players to use their own weapon skins in the battle royale mode, but can make bigger and bolder changes in Save the World where their mods wouldn’t influence other players as much.

The introduction of mods would certainly excite many players, but, there is a fine balance to uphold so that they don’t completely break the game.

Plus, there is also the question of whether or not they would be PC-only or work on console too. But, we’ll just have to wait and see what further info is released surrounding the possibility of mods.
