Fortnite holiday update: what to expect

According to the postponement of a Cash Cup, it looks like we should be getting a Fortnite holiday update on December 4.

‘Tis the season for a Fortnite holiday update. Epic has been adding festive skins, lobbies, and even map changes to Fortnite ever since the first Fortnite season. You can grab some of the more sought after Season 1 holiday skins in the Item Shop tonight.

We’re past Thanksgiving and into December, which means Fortnite should be bringing us a holiday update soon. If we take the postponement of the OCE and ASIA Platform Cash Cup as any indication, that time is early tomorrow morning.

These regions play when updates usually take place, which means postponing them suggests we’ll be getting an update tomorrow.

What can we expect from the Fortnite Christmas update? Your guess is as good as ours. We’ll probably get a plethora of leaked Fortnite holiday skins, a festive lobby, a new Battle Bus song, and much more.

We’re likely getting some overtime or holiday challenges as well since Chapter 2 Season 1 is extended into 2020. These might not go live right away, but will probably be in the game files; waiting for activation.

We also saw data miner @Hypex tweet about a new ‘Icebox’ item found in the game files with some winter-themed items. These may be isolated to an LTM, but we’ll have to wait and see.

We also have a list of bug fixes that could be coming with this update, courtesy of the Fortnite Community Issues Trello board. The only fix that’s listed as ‘fixed in next release’ is one that handles the display of the Refund Tokens, but there will undoubtedly be more.

We may also see the return of the Scoped and Heavy AR with this update. Epic might hold off on these with the FNCS finals on the horizon, but it would be very on-brand if they release the reworked weapons days before a tournament.
