If you're hungry for more Fortnite, good news, it will literally never end. By which we mean that a new Fortnite event has leaked, dubbed "Fortnite Winter Trials."

Winter Trials will allow players to earn some new goodies, and thanks to data miners like HYPEX, we've got quite a bit of information that's been leaked about when it starts, what it involves, and what cosmetics or rewards players can earn.

Here's HYPEX in the video below with a leaked look at Fortnite's official site for Winter Trials.

Fortnite Winter Trials: How does it work?

According to HYPEX, Fortnite Winter Trials lets players sign into their Epic Games account, choose a team associated with a high profile Fortnite player, vote for a challenge, then play some actual Fortnite, and earn up to 12 badges to earn 12 winter-themed cosmetic rewards.

Players will vote on one of three challenges, which includes options like "eliminate as many named NPCs as possible," completing bounties, or not being allowed to use weapons or damage other players.

The cosmetics are a fairly cute assembly of wintery looks, like a snowball spray or a new weapon wrap.
