When Epic announced an incorrect end date for its 14 Days of Fortnite holiday event on social media, Epic said it would apologize by offering any player who completed at least one challenge during the event the Equalizer Glider. But now rather than give players the glider, Epic is just re-doing the entire 14 Days of Fortnite event.
"We communicated an incorrect end date for the 14 Days of Fortnite event and did not feel the Equalizer Glider compensation was the right approach," Epic writes in a tweet. "After further discussion, we've decided to bring back this event early next week through January 15 at 3 am ET (0800 UTC)." Epic says it is also considering bringing back some of the popular Limited-Time Modes that were available during the event. Don't expect to see the Infinity Blade though.

This means any player who missed out on a specific day's challenge and the related rewards can try again when the event is restarted next week. Epic says all challenges will be available to complete, but unfortunately any progress from partially completed challenges will be reset. So if you only got partway through a challenge during the original event but never finished it, you'll have to restart it from the beginning.
