This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

I thought this might be worth posting as it is probably the best Fortnite freebie of the year.

From the Epic Games website:

"Every day for 14 days, you may unwrap a new Present at the Lodge. Inside are two Outfits, two Gliders, two Pickaxes, two Wraps, one Emote, and more — all exclusive to this years’ Winterfest!"

"You might be wondering: how do I get all the things? Just prepare your shaking and guessing skills — the Presents are free for everyone to open. The Lodge is full of Presents, and each day you can return and unwrap a new one. If you miss any days, simply come back before January 7 to open them up."


Its not unusual for Epic to provide a free item or two, but 14 items including 2 new outfits must be about the biggest Fortnite freebie that Epic Games have done to date.

Its essentially an online Fortnite Advent calendar that you access from the within the game menu.

And there is more.......

Parents may also be interested to know of a little publicised new feature - Fortnite now has a split screen mode - so 2 kids can play the game as a Duo or Squad team on one console (You will need 2 controllers). Before this update - either the kids would have had to take it in turns to play - or you would have needed to buy 2 Playstation or Xbox consoles (and 2 TVs).

To play split screen you will need to:
1) Launch the Fortnite game
2) Make sure you have selected Duos or Squads (it only works in these two game modes)
3) Connect a second controller (and log in to a 2nd PS4 profile - or on Xbox switch to 2nd profile)
4) A new option should appear within Fortnite lobby page, at bottom right of screen saying that 2nd player can join the game lobby by pressing and holding "X" button (PS4) or "A" button (Xbox one).

Happy Winterfest Christmas all.

Kind regards dbno,

I reckon so, i bought another xbox the other xmas so i could play with my kids lol but split screen will save loads of arguments for sure especially when they have friends over
Can this be accessed from the xbox or must you do it via a pc epic account?

From the PS4 or Xbox
Ah I can see a number of slack jawed dribbling zombies forming in the next 2 weeks
🔥 Added for the split screen info. Nice one!!
Anyone know if split screen has also been added to the PC version??? Usually pc versions have split screen omitted and it's sad because it's way more capable.
Have you really been divorced from your ex-wife/civil partner?
Do you need two Xbox live subscriptions?

People beware the Grinch is out in force this Christmas.
My boys play it and hadn't noticed that you can split screen so it's a great tip for us these holidays.
Instead of moaning about whose turn it is, they'll have to find something else to argue about.

Well aren’t you a delight!

Heat added - thanks for the heads up. I’ll be popping in daily to collect the gifts
Split screen has been disabled since it was added to the game
Very helpful post, cheers!
jimbo197619/12/2019 08:53

Do you need two Xbox live subscriptions?


No, just two different profiles or use guest
Where is the Lodge?
Very nice to know about presents as my kid is grounded and therefore no games but this I'll let him collect.

No one would have switched on the ps4 otherwise and so this post helped me.

No one will suffice

No I was excited too but sadly not on pc at the moment
Will my son be able to get this on the ipad then? He has an Xbox but we're away until after Christmas so he can't claim through there

It's accessable on the main screen

yeah, it’ll work on your phone too, you can even log in to his account and claim it through the log in screen, but there are tons of updates that need to be installed, so better go for the iPad
Split screen, so it will be 30fps or even less? Good luck with laggy gameplay, if I remember right on Xbox x I had 60fps? On PC 144fps no less, no more
