Epic Games announced in Fortnite's 7.10 update that in addition to the usual list of seven weekly challenges, there would be a new challenge unveiled each day for two weeks. The limited-time seasonal event starting Dec. 19 is called 14 Days of Fortnite and in keeping with the holiday spirit, all the challenges offer free rewards, so you don't even need a Battle Pass to get the loot. So far, only the first challenge has been unveiled:
The first challenge is incredibly easy. You just have to start or join a creative server. From the lobby, choose Creative as your game mode and start the game. When you come back to the lobby, you will have completed the challenge. You might want to stick around though because Creative Mode continued to expand in the update, with new winter-themed islands, holiday props, more prefabs and several other new ways to customize your space.
Large and Small team mode rotation
Along with the daily challenges, Epic is changing how it handles large team modes during the event. LTMs usually last for a week at a time and are part of what makes Fortnite fun, giving you a little variation from regular Battle Royale gameplay. But during the event, Epic is going to rotate LTMs every 48 hours and small team modes every 24 hours, so no matter when you log in, you're going to have something new to try every day.
This seems like a way for Epic Games add to the weekly challenges list for the holidays, while still making it a fun time for players. We'll still be following the familiar schedule with free and Battle Pass challenges, but for now, there's free loot to be earned for everyone.
