Fortnite Winter Royale 2020: Start Date, Game Mode, Prize Pool, Frosty Frenzy and More

It Has Returned!

A brand new season of Fortnite is drawing closer and closer by the hour.

Season 5 is looking to be one of the most chaotic seasons of all time, and we cannot wait and see what Epic has in store for us.

One aspect of the new season players are awaiting is the announcement of the next competitive event.

Winter Royale appears to be the next one in line, so what do we know about this year's event? 

Here's all we know! 

Will It Happen? 

Yes! Epic has announced that this year's event will be Frosty Frenzy and will take place very soon! 

Start Date

Announced via the official Fortnite competitive social media; the event is going to kick off on December 12th and run until the 13th.

A week earlier than last year's event. 

Game Mode

Last year the game mode for Winter Royale was duos, this eventually led to the next season's FNCS being duos as well.

With the recent announcement that FNCS will be Trios for all of 2021, it comes as no surprise that this years event is Trios as well! 

Prize Pool

Winter Royale is knowing for having an incredible prize pool each year so we expect no different.

Epic gets into the spirit of giving back and they distribute winnings to a high number of players down the leaderboard. 

We can expect a prize pool announcement tomorrow!
