Fortnite has held a sensual winter event around the holiday season for years, often with challenges, free rewards like holiday skins and more! But what does Epic have planned for us this year? Let's dive into Fortnite Winterfest 2022.

Fortnite Winterfest 2022 Start: Event start expected in December

Last year, Winterfest 2021 started on December 16th and lasted until January 6th, 2022. The new Fortnite Season, which probably has some wintery changes in store for us, is expected to start on December 4th, 2022. So we can assume that Winterfest 2022 will also start around this time.

How Fortnite Winterfest Is Changing The Game

Epic Games of course tries to keep all the details about the event secret so as not to spoil the surprise, but we've already learned a few interesting things from the last few years...

Free Event Calendar Rewards

We can expect that once again there will be gifts under the tree that we can open and that will either grant us free skins & cosmetics. For the last few years, we had to visit a shack in the lobby where we could open a nice gift every day.

New Winter and Christmas skins

Additionally, players can expect many new winter-themed skins and cosmetics to come to the item shop again. All skins that were and will be leaked early can be found here.

Winter Map Changes

Of course, our Fortnite island will be decorated for Christmas again! Also, it is likely that the island will be covered in snow to add to the Christmas spirit. However, it should be kept in mind that this will not necessarily be related to the Season 5 storyline. Once Fortnite Winterfest 2022 ends, the snow will likely go away again.

Winter Quests

Like any festive season, Fortnite Winterfest 2022 will come with a host of challenges. As a reward there will also be winter rewards as well as some extra XP for our Battle Pass.

Of course, as we find out more about Fortnite Winterfest 2022, we'll update this article for you.
