Fortnite returns to Halloween in the game every year. It is called Fortnitemares, and the event will start today and last until November 3. Epic Games has introduced some elements to the island and will also host a virtual concert performed by the reggae superstar J Balvin. The game will use new weapons inspired by Halloween, such as pumpkin rocket launcher, devil hunter, witch broomstick, or just a new invention of the protagonist Shadow Midas. The event will be called Fortnitemares 2020: Midas’Revenge.
Epic Games published a blog post confirming this annual event and stated that it will start today. The game maker believes that this event will mark the arrival of Shadow Midas. Shadow Midas and his followers took over The Authority, and now they plan to turn players into Shadows. Once eliminated, you become a shadow, and then return to the island to turn other living players into shadows. These shadows will have more abilities, such as owning the body of a vehicle…or any other means.
In addition to the battle royale mode, the Fortnitemares event will also bring new challenges, special rewards, such as Midas’ Shadow Wrap, Smash O’Lantern Pickaxe, Bobo Back Bling, etc. It also provides new Party Trooper equipment in the item store. The biggest highlight is that Reggae star J. Balvin will host the game. In the performance at the Afterlife Party, the singer will also sing his new song ft. Sech. Epic Games stated that the party will start on the main stage of Royal Royale at 9pm Eastern Time on October 31 (6.30am UTC on November 1st).
In addition, Fortnite Creative will feature four unique islands inspired by Fortnitemares, where users can find some mysterious codes. A total of 20 figures have been buried in these haunted houses, and finding them will win the player an angry wristband.
