What’s New in The Fortnite Christmas Update 2023?
Now that your curiosity about when the Fortnite Christmas update will come out, it’s time to know what to expect from it. Here’s a list of all the changes we predict with the Fortnite Christmas 2023 update.
1. Changes in the Map
Of course, the Fortnite island will be garnished and festooned for Christmas once more! It will also be wrapped in clear, white snow. And guess what you can do with all that snow? Snow fights! Launch snow and have the time of your life with the Fortnite Christmas update.
Note that once Fortnite Winterfest ends, snow will likely disappear.
2. Christmas Presents
Adding to the festive feel, everything will be decorated with fairy lights, and Christmas trees will be scattered around in the Fortnite Christmas update. But the best part is the Christmas Presents! They will offer you and your team invaluable loot.
3. Daily Rewards
Similar to advent calendars, we expect daily rewards for Christmas this year. They will be under the Christmas tree and will give us free skins and cosmetics. For the last few years, we had to visit a shack in the lobby where we could open a nice gift every day. So it might be the same this year for the Fortnite Christmas update.
4. New in-game Challenges
Like any festive season, the Fortnite Christmas Update, Winterfest 2023, will come with a number of in-game challenges for you. As a bonus, there will also be winter prizes as well as some additional XP for the Battle Pass!
5. Free Skins
Who doesn’t want new skins? We do! And Fortnite Chapter 4 will bring new Christmas skins for us with its Fortnite Christmas update. You can get new skins in the item shop.
Want to know which skins these are? Here are our predictions:
- Winterfest Jonesy
- Assault Trooper
