The spooky season has here, and in true Fortnite form, a brand-new round of the annual Halloween Fortnitemares event has been revealed. A recent tweet on the official Fortnite Twitter account revealed that the event is scheduled to go live on October 18 and will very certainly continue for a few weeks beyond the day on which it reaches its peak, which is October 31.
The brief video that accompanied the announcement also had a prismatic creature that resembled a wolf. This might be seen as a hint to one of the potential skins that would be made available throughout the course of the event. In addition, owing to a fan idea competition that took place earlier in the year, we have already been provided with a sneak peek of what a handful of the skins for this event will look like when they are released.
The Fortnitemares event from the previous year was dubbed “Wrath of the Cube Queen,” and it featured the aforementioned Queen of the Cubes bringing about significant alterations to the island. As the day of the event approaches nearer, players can anticipate a large number of significant changes taking place throughout the whole area.
Her appearance also coincided with the appearance of a more powerful class of Cube Monsters known as the Caretakers, as well as the debut of a new Sideways combat weapon known as the Sideways Scythe. We may anticipate more of the same themed weaponry and monsters to find their way into this year’s Halloween occasion, even if there have been no official remarks made regarding the substance of this year’s event as of yet.
A new Halloween boss with the codename “Freaky” is rumored to be included in the next release of Fortnitemares. This rumor has been circulating for quite some time. A tweet from a Fortnite insider named HYPEX suggests that the character “Freaky” is an entity that will have the power to call forth various monsters.
After it is vanquished, it will also drop a Mythic weapon whose name is currently unknown as well as more ammunition, consumables, and utility items. The same insider also shared that there is a possibility that a new type of ammunition known as “Phantom Ammo” may be available to purchase during the Halloween event.
