Fortnite is re-creating your favorite film festival

UPDATE: Fortnite developer Epic Games has revealed more about the upcoming Short Nite event.

Kicking off at 7pm GMT on February 20, the Short Nite event is a film festival that takes place in Party Royale.

“This week, Fortnite is re-creating your favorite film festival – virtually. “Short Nite” on the Big Screen in Party Royale will feature 12 acclaimed animated short films for players and their friends to enjoy.”

ORIGINAL: Fortnite update 15.40 is available to download on consoles, PC and mobile.

The new Fortnite v bucks generator update brings back the Flintlock Pistol, some fan favourite LTMs, and makes more Exotic weapons available from in-game vendors.

However, it’s the items found within the game files that are of the most interest to fans.

This includes new skins, a brand new in-game event, and the reveal of upcoming challenges.

As you can see from the image below, new skins and variants include Sica, Xander and Britestorm Bomber.

Even more exciting is the appearance of a brand new Legendary Glider.

The Cerberus Glider is part of the Vanquisher Set, which also includes the Sica skin and the Arena’s Blessing Harvesting Tool.

Interestingly, there’s also mention of something called Short Nite, which takes place in Party Royale on February 20 and February 21.
