Fortnite 7.10 Patch: Settle your family arguments the way Grandma did, with a festive Battle Royale!

The 14 Days of Fortnite event is now live. It’s 14 days because that’s what a fortnight is. Get it? Back in the day, we needed a word for this specific length of time because everyone was just really tired of saying two weeks. The learning doesn’t stop just because you’re on holiday! And neither does the cheerfully-coloured carnage!

The 7.10 patch really stuffs your stocking, if you know what I mean. It means there’s a lot going on, geez. With holiday-themed updates to the Battle Royale, Creative, and Save the World modes you can celebrate the festive season in whatever way you choose. Choose to murder your friends with a Snowball Launcher. All the cool kids are doing it.

In addition to the themed makeovers, updates include but are not limited to:

  • Battle Royale team modes changing every two days for Large and every 24 hours for Small. This ticks over every day at 9am EST (4pm SAST) so you’ll have to check in to see what’s new.
  • Save the World’s new survival-style experience: Frostnite. Players need to keep their Burners filled with BluGlo or freeze to death. See how long you can last with only your basic weapons, schematics, and jolly festive determination!
  • Numerous holiday hero skins, bug fixes, and weapons updates.
  • Mobile support being enabled for a number of phones such as the Samsung A8S, Xiaomi Mi 8SE, Nokia 8.1, and Samsung A9.
  • Daily free Upgrade Llama pinatas and a free Smorgasbord Llama closer to Christmas.

Happy Christmas to all, and to all a good Fortnite!

Sorry, not sorry.
