14 Days of Fortnite will return soon, but only for about a week

Fortnite had a lovely festive event at the end of last year: a fortnight (groan) of challenges and gifts for players of both the Save The World and Battle Royale modes.

But not for its full length - only from some time "early next week" until January 15th. So…

Fortnite’s Halloween zombie invasion stumbles as it launches

Betrayal! Once thought benevolent for its shield-giving and bouncy properties, Fortnite Battle Royale's once-beloved purple cube (affectionately named Kevin by players) has turned heel for Halloween.
