To avail this feature, ask your friends to join you in playing five Fortnite battles with them. This is valid only if played between the dates November 20 and November 26. You will then receive a free Fog Wrap in your account probably by December 4

Another interesting thing to note is, the new collaboration crops out the faces present in your group video call and places them in a beautiful background that syncs with the bright palette which Fortnite is most famous for. You can also change its language in game.

As a measure against security and privacy, you can only allow your Houseparty friends into your group chat. Apart from this, there is also a provision to block and restrict the number of people in your game.
