Fortnite Chapter 2: Season 1 to be extended until February 2020

By Lauren Aitken, Wednesday, 20 November 2019 11:02 GMT

The Fortnite v11.20 patch is now available across all platforms, bringing with it new Daily Challenges and some new information about Chapter 2: Season 1.

Alongside the new patch, it was announced that Fortnite Chapter 2: Season 1 will run until February 2020. There will be a festive update as we near December, but this Season will carry on beyond the new year. In previous seasons, there were 14 days of Overtime Challenges, whereas Season 1 is set to be considerably longer.

The Bandage Bazooka finally makes a comeback this week after a previously poor performance. The Snowman set has also been added and you can create some wintery scenes for the #FrostyFortnite competition. You can submit your winter wonderland creations here.

Daily Challenges have been added into the mix and there will be three available at a time. You’ll also be able to replace one challenge for another once per day.

There have been various other fixes to the Magma Wrap, inventory selections and damage scaling, which you can check out below.
