Fortnite Winterfest leak reveals start time and NEW Christmas skin


FORTNITE’S special Christmas event is due to start today – and leaks are coming thick and fast.

The annual Fortnite Winterfest will introduce loads of new goodies, including skins and rewards.

Fortnite is about to get very festive

Epic Games hasn’t confirmed everything about the event yet, so we’re still largely in the dark.

But we won’t be for much longer.

Epic Games says that the event is due to begin on Thursday, December 16 – that’s today.

And popular Fortnite leaker iFireMonkey on Twitter revealed more details.

In a tweet, the tipster confirmed that the new Blizzabelle winter skin would land with Winterfest on day one.

And the tweet said that this would become available at 11am NY time – that’s 8am in California and 4pm in London.

So be sure to check your Fortnite for the new Winterfest content from then.

Remember that you’ll need to install an update on Fortnite before you can access any Winterfest content.

The leaked Blizzabelle skin has the character wearing a blue Christmas sweater, a golden belt and a white-and-blue skirt.

She’s even got frosty blue lipstick on for true winter glam.

The event is expected to end at 11am NY time on December 30.

Although the Blizzabelle skin is tipped to be available right through to January 6.

Epic Games is also expected to introduce a new background for the Winterfest page.

This is a festive red pattern with Christmas trees in the style of gift-wrapping.

One of the main leaks from iFireMonkey on Twitter reveals a Winterfest 2021 Cabin.

It’s a Creative Mode hub that lets you quickly access all creative games within Winterfest.

You can also expect other rewards linked to the Winterfest update.
