After announcing the incorrect end date of their 14 Days of Fortnite event, the Epic Games announced recently that the event will return this week giving a chance to Fortnite players to complete the challenges.

In a statement released on their website, Epic Games did not include the specific date and time when the event will come back, but they made sure that its end time is clear – 3 AM ET (0800 UTC) on January 15th. Some fans who are feeling positive after the announcement are looking forward to its comeback sometime around January 8th.

Epic admitted that they have released the wrong end date of the event. To make up for the mistake, they previously offered players to enjoy their free Equalizer Glider. But Epic Games said they felt the offer will not suffice. Epic said they “did not feel the Equalizer Glider compensation was the right approach.”

Epic was feeling positive as they believe players can get a chance to earn the rewards they might have missed after the previously messed up announcement of the end date. Aside from the return of the 14 Days of Fortnite, Epic will also enable some of the popular Limited Time Modes. Epic said all the challenges can be played and are up for completion during the re-run of the event this coming week.

Those who have already started their challenges during the past year could get excited in wrapping up what they have missed, but they cannot expect to start exactly where they left off as all partially completed challenges will automatically be reset.

On top of that, those who have completed at least one challenge will also be given the freebie after Epic confirmed that the Equalizer Glider is still in place.

But while some players are rejoicing for the return of the Fortnite event, other players cannot hide their frustration saying the extension was done in order to allow players to finish the challenges since some Epic employees on Reddit bared there will be time to get past through all the challenges.

Some players on Twitter also said they would love it more if Epic released old skins from the past seasons at a discounted price. Others suggested that Epic should label it “28 Days of Fortnite with 14 challenges” instead.

The 14 Days of Fortnite kicked off on December 19 last year. The event featured new reward every day plus new and returning LTMs to choose from.
