When Does Fortnite Christmas Update Come Out in 2022 | Winterfest Launch Date

Last year, the Fortnite Christmas update was released on 16th December 2021 and ran until 6th January 2022. We know that the update will be released after Fortnite Chapter 4 And, if we follow previous years’ trends, we can safely bet that the Fortnite Christmas update will be released around 15th December 2022. We can expect around the same time this year.  Usually, seasonal and festive updates aren’t revealed until a few days before they go live, so expect more details in the coming weeks. Note that an official statement has not been made yet.  Also, read How to Get Ash Williams in Fortnite | Fortnitemares 2022 Ash Williams’ Skin

What’s New in The Fortnite Christmas Update 2022?

Now that your curiosity about when the Fortnite Christmas update will come out, it’s time to know what to expect from it. Here’s a list of all the changes we predict with the Fortnite Christmas 2022 update. 

1. Changes in the Map

Of course, the Fortnite island will be garnished and festooned for Christmas once more! It will also be wrapped in clear, white snow. And guess what you can do with all that snow? Snow fights! Launch snow and have the time of your life with the Fortnite Christmas update.  Note that once Fortnite Winterfest ends, snow will likely disappear.

2. Christmas Presents 

Adding to the festive feel, everything will be decorated with fairy lights, and Christmas trees will be scattered around in the Fortnite Christmas update. But the best part is the Christmas Presents! They will offer you and your team invaluable loot.

3. Daily Rewards 

Similar to advent calendars, we expect daily rewards for Christmas this year. They will be under the Christmas tree and will give us free skins and cosmetics. For the last few years, we had to visit a shack in the lobby where we could open a nice gift every day. So it might be the same this year for the Fortnite Christmas update.  Also, read How To Change Fortnite Name on Android, iOS, Xbox, PS & Mac
