Fortnite Winterfest Kicks Off With Free Skins, Unvaulted Weapons, And More

It’s the happiest time of the year in Fortnite. The annual Winterfest event, during which Epic Games celebrates the holiday season by giving away tons of cosmetics to players for free, has finally begun. It runs until 6 AM PT / 9 AM ET on January 3.

Starting today you can visit the Winterfest Lodge–accessible from a new button on the main menu–and open one present a day until you’ve opened all 14 of them. Across those 14 presents you’ll find 17 free items, including two gliders, two wraps, three lobby tracks, three sprays, a back bling, pickaxe, contrail, emote and emoticon. Oh yeah, and two free skins. If you miss some days, that’s okay. You can catch up all the way through the end of the event on the morning of January 3.

Fortnite’s Battle Royale modes are being affected too, of course. Coming out of the vault for Winterfest are the snowball launcher, a heavy weapon, and presents, which come with all sorts of quality loot inside.
