Fortnite players can now enter the game to take on some holiday frivolity during the PvE Save the World Mode. There are new activities and items to check out as well as some additions for the Battle Royale half of the game.
During the Survive the Holidays event, players will take off on a brand new questline to bring "the holiday spirit to everyone in the husk-ridden world". You'll earn Snowflake tickets that can be used to buy themed items like the "Holiday Survival Llamas".
You'll also find the following:
- tougher versions of mini-bosses like Husk, Husky and Smasher
- Survive the Storm has been updated with a winter-themed map, 3 and 7 day versions and with new enemies
- new heroes including Sarah Claus, Blitzen BASE Kyle, Snow Stalker Jonesy and Fragment Flurry Jess
- new sniper weapons and a snowball launcher
Battle Royale players will be able to get hold of the Snowball launcher and there will be a "holiday Battle Bus" along with other gifts.
You can read the full update notes on the Fortnite site.
