The update is an extensive one for PC players with the size going up to 23 GB. That is considerably large even for a major update, as the Galactus one had amounted to a mere 4 GB.

Fortnite explained the reason behind this abnormal size via a tweet.

The update came out today, and the first big difference that one can spot is the map. There is visible snow on the map and dynamic alterations to the terrain that suits the winter theme. There are new weapons, NPCs and Christmas-themed events to accompany that. It even snows when players go towards the snow-capped mountains.

Operation Snowdown

With Winterfest gone, Operation Snowdown has taken its place as this year’s Fortnite Christmas event. This event brings in new NPCs and LTMs. Furthermore, there are some challenges that players can complete to unlock rewards.

Rewards will include two exclusive outfits and a variety of winter-themed cosmetics. Complete the challenges and quests to earn them all.

LTM- Spy Within

If that game mode name made you a bit sus, let us make it clear. This mode is very similar to the popular game ‘Among Us’. The description Epic provided gives off the ‘werewolf’ vibes, similar to the fan-favorite party game by InnerSloth.

“The team of Spies must hunt down the team of Agents as they complete objectives. Don’t act sus, or the agents will vote you off the island.”

This mode is now live.
