Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 1 Extended
After Epic Games extended the season 1 of Fortnite Chapter 2 till February 2020, this has become one of the longest-running seasons in the game. Epic Games released an event titled “14 Days of Fortnite” for the holidays. This was well-received by the players. Looking at this, it doesn’t feel like the Season 1’s extension is a mere coincidence, especially since it is the holiday season once again!
Last December, Epic had a 14 Days of Fortnite event. Here, players could indulge in daily holiday-themed challenges, gain rewards, and more. It looks like the company is working along the same lines. During last year’s event, the game’s map got a winter revamp with each day bringing new LTMs. Holiday outfits were seen in the Item Shop as were Snowball Launcher and festive Battle Bus. Fortnite even has a “holiday-lit Legendary Bush” in-game!
According to the developers, this additional time will allow the players to collect season rewards and other awards. In addition to this, we can also expect to see a holiday-themed event sometime soon. One thing many believe is that this event is likely to grander and better than any previous event. The number of teasers put out by Fortnite is working with the players excitedly waiting for the big reveal, expected to take place on January 1, 2020.
Fortnite v11.20 Update
With the v11.20 update, Fortnite will offer the users the option of playing the PC version of the game using Microsoft DirectX 12. This is great news since it will give the users better CPU performance and distribution of rendering jobs. The game’s current PC version needs a Microsoft DirectX 11-capable graphics card. With Microsoft DirectX 12 support, higher frame rates with a steady output can be supported. The company is also working to release more features which would be possible with Microsoft DirectX 12 APIs.
Although we don’t know what to expect in this year’s event, we can be sure that it is likely to be great. With the extension till February, the celebration is going to continue well into the new year.
