Fortnite Winter Trials leak sees Epic Games beat data miners to the punch

Untimely Fortnite reveals are commonplace, but usually, all thanks to the work of data miners. In the case of the Fortnite Winter Trials 2021, however, Epic Games cut out the middle man and leaked its newest initiative via the “trials.fortnite” website. The new event will see players earning badges by completing challenges, all in the name of gaining several exclusive rewards.

After the Winter Trials website went live early, it didn’t take Fortnite fans long to uncover Epic Games’ blunder. The dev team took the site down, but not before Hypex was able to capture and showcase its contents on YouTube. By logging in, voting for challenges, supporting a team, and playing Fortnite users can earn badges; getting enough badges will net players new and exclusive in-game rewards.
