The first decorations for the Fortnite’s Holiday event have started landing on Battle Royale Island – and more will be on their way.
One of the main ways that Epic games may have had the success they’ve had with Fortnite is the ability to keep the battle royale title relevant.
While it has its own seasons in the game, real-life events are factored in and delivered as skins, challenges, or even full-fledged parts of the map. We’ve already seen Fortnite deliver its first long holiday-themed event in Season Seven, and with Chapter 2 in full swing, the winter season returns to Battle Royale Island.
German Fortnite content creator Hey Stan noted that the shipment of Christmas decorations arrived at Dirty Docks on November 21.Christmas delivery is here at Dirty Docks, ”he tweeted.
Hidden inside some of the containers are Christmas trees already dressed in lights, while others have small wooden sculptures that also have light bulbs on. Of course, these are harvestable for wood, so if you can’t find them quickly at Dirty Docks, you might not see them.

While Season Seven had the map, at one point covered in snow, that could be a different story in terms of Chapter 2.
At the time of writing there was no hint of a possible change in the weather to snow, however, we might at least have some fog. Reddit user Romulousvoid noted in the FortniteBR subreddit that using the epic setting in replay mode would show a bit of fog.
However, some fans have said that maybe this was a mistake. “Don’t they use fog in Sneaky Silencers LTM?” It could be a bug, ”asked ShortSonic01.
We know that the first season of Fortnite Chapter 2 will be extended for the holiday period and that there will also be a live event with new content rolled out – likely similar to 14 Days of Fortnite.
However, it remains to be seen what the developers have in store for fans by the end of December.
