Leave it to Fortnite to have the glitziest holiday update of the season: it’s signed up Spider-Man: No Way Home stars Tom Holland and Zendaya to feature as skins based on their characters from the film, Peter Parker and MJ Watson. Alright, it’s especially Christmassy we suppose, but it’s suitably timely – the movie is going to be massive, after all. This is Zendaya’s second Fortnite skin, by the way.
WinterFest, a recurring event, gets underway today and will run until 6th January. As part of the celebrations, Sgt. Winter will be handing out gifts to all, including two outfits, two Pickaxes, two Wraps, a Glider, Contrail, Emote, Lobby Track, Loading Screen, Emoticon, Spray, and Banner. That’s a lot of festive cheer, folks – you just need to remember to unwrap your goodies from the Lodge.
Of course, there’ll also be new Quests to complete, with XP up for grabs – and if you finish seven of them, you’ll get the Snowmando Board Glider. There’s also the Ffrosty Back Bling for those of you who go the extra mile and complete ten. Meanwhile, you can unwrap some extra gifts – an Ol’ Cracky Emoticon, Llamistletoe Spray, a Merry Marauder Banner, and a 2022 New Year’s Banner – for exploring Creative for a couple of hours.
And a ton of old gear and items will be unvaulted for the festive period, including Chiller Grenades and Snowball Launchers. That’s all in addition to the aforementioned Spider-Man: No Way Home skins, which will go live in the Item Shop later today. Will you be climbing aboard the Battle Bus this holiday season, then?
