ORIGINAL ARTICLE (October 10, 2022)
Greetings creators,

Have you felt that chill in the air? The holiday season will soon be upon us and that means the Fortnite community will be looking for new experiences in Winterfest 2022! Step up to the challenge in this year’s Winterfest Callout .

The holidays are all about making memories, and with all the new devices and tools added this year, we know you’ll be able to build something truly unique and memorable by creating experiences which are brand new — or inspired by the Winterfest islands that have come before! Look to incorporate social interactions for sharing that holiday spirit, and/or break out icy items from the vault to get some truly wintery gameplay going.

Some of our favorite islands will be featured in a special Discover row in Winterfest 2022!

  • The holiday season is a wonderful opportunity to greet brand new Fortnite gamers. Make sure you draw players to your game by making sure that your island’s description and title are easy to read and understand.
  • Make sure you bow your new skills you’ve learned over the last year, by examining the new features you could incorporate in your own island! Invite visitors to skate using Chiller Grenades and make up an Sneaky Snowman as well even walk around in an icy winter paradise. You could even host a melee and the joust in a snowy castle, to determine a new Year’s Champion — smash the devices, you guys!
  • Make your eliminations unique by imagining different ways to eliminate them. Your players could be swept away by frozen lakes, be swarmed by snowmen or suffer their death in other unforeseen but thematically related ways.

    • Unseen-before island designs that push boundaries are sure to catch our interest.
