Epic Games is running Fortnitemare, a scary, Halloween-oriented Fortnite event that will be available in both Battle Royale and Save The World modes. In the former case, players have to master new challenges and in return receive loot and cool new cosmetics. "During Fortnitemares, you'll be fighting Cube Monsters in a whole new way to play Battle Royale," explains Epic. "There are new weapons to fight these creepy creatures, like the Six-Gunner and the Forearm Hunter's Crossbow, and take out the dice-friends and fragments to pick up prey and survive against enemy players."
As part of the event, the new Deadfire outfit is available and is described as a "new kind of reactive outfit" that changes over the course of a match. This, Epic said, will allow players to "show [their] skills in style." The changes to the equipment depend on the damage you do to your enemies and how long you live. The skin also comes with the Shackled Stone Back Bling and the Dark Shard Pickaxe is also available in the store. These are also reactive cosmetics.
Facing the challenges, Fortnitemare will provide players with cosmetics to complete. However, Epic plans to refresh the challenges and the rewards "every few days". Those who endure it and master the final challenges will receive the Dark Engine glide you can see below, along with the Deadfire Skin and Fortnitemare's first challenges.
Fortnitemare Challenges Day 1
- Destroy Cube Monsters
- Damage with Assault Rifles or Pistols to Cube Monsters
- Visit a damaged area in various games
- Dance in various gargoyles
In Save The World, Hexsylvania has since returned. Players can try "multiple sets of story quests" and new rewards as you fight the horror next to your friends. "You can find out more on the Epic website.
Epic Games has also detailed the content of Fortnite Update 6.20, which adds the new Six Shooter weapon to the game along with the Fortnitemares players. It also gives players the opportunity to reuse gliders after landing on the island. This feature is tested by Epic and is therefore available in all Battle Royale game modes.
