However, this leak is not much of a spoiler as it is the same as every year’s celebration of a fireworks display and a night of dancing in different locations in the game. Also, the night time mode on “Fortnite” would be showing by chance, and would not be the same for every gamer, but servers might put everyone in-game near the New Year’s Eve event celebration time with darker skies to fully enjoy the show.
Also, Epic Games would be adding the famous disco ball that will shine the skies where gamers can dance using their emotes (and pickaxe swings), accompanied by music fitting the New Year. A new emote is available in the game’s shop, that balloons 2021 up.
