Fortnite Winterfest Cinematics and Details Leaked

We’ve still got plenty of time left for Fortnite’s

Star Wars event, but it looks like the winter event waits for no one. Fortnite’s Winterfest Challenge reportedly starts today, according to Forbes, and it looks like there’s plenty of info to digest.

That said, it appears that HypeX, the same data miner who found some images of the new Winterfest Challenge lobby menu, also determined that Epic has removed the text that reads “Get ready for seasonal fun, challenges and free presents. Starts December 17.”

At the time of writing (9:30am Pacific Time), it appears that the Fortnite Winterfest Challenge hasn’t started quite yet. So it’s possible that the event could be delayed further, at least until later today.

Various Fortnite data miners like HypeX were the first to find some images and video of the new in-game lobby menu, which has been converted into a winter cabin.

The lobby itself has various animations to play around with, like a nutcracker and the roaring fireplace. It’s unclear if they’re just little cosmetic distractions or if they’re tied to any sort of challenge or gameplay.

So what does this Winterfest Challenge entail exactly? Here’s a rundown of the previously leaked challenge list.

  • Search Holiday Stockings in the Winterfest Cabin (1 total)

  • Stoke a Campfire (1 total)

  • Eliminations with an Unvaulted Weapon (5 total)

  • Hide inside a Sneaky Snowman in different matches (2 total)

  • Warm yourself by the fireplace in the Winterfest Cabin (1 total)

  • Dance at Holiday trees in different Named Locations (5 total)

  • Search a chest within 60 seconds after landing from the Battle Bus (1 total)

  • Use Presents! (2 total)

  • Open Frozen Loot (1 total)

  • Deal damage to an opponent with a Lump of Coal (1 total)

  • Destroy a Sneaky Snowman with a Lightsaber or Pickaxe (1 total)

  • Search Ice Boxes (2 total)

  • Light a Frozen Firework found on beaches in Sweaty Sands, Craggy Cliffs or Dirty Docks (1 total)

  • Search Ammo Boxes at The Workshop, Shiver Inn or Ice Thrones (2 total)

Every challenge will give you some sort of toy or holiday-themed gift, like a skateboard or a new emote.

These include a frozen version of the Fishstick skin, the “Frozen Nog Ops” skin, and “The Devourer,” which looks like a human-sized version of the Polar Peak monster that fought the giant teddy bear mech some seasons back. HypeX says those skins are planned for a December 23 release, but IGN could not independently verify that claim.

In other Fortnite news, did you know that Ninja and Mark Hamill are teaming up for a stream on December 19? It’s still a mystery what they’ll be doing, but it certainly is a clash of cultural forces.
