Fortnitemares Returns to Fortnite Chapter 2

Fortnite’s seasonal Halloween event, Fortnitemares, has returned to Fortnite. Epic Games is mostly playing it safe with the event, which makes sense considering Fortnite just underwent a massive overhaul that added an entirely new island to the popular Battle Royale game.

With a Halloween seasonal event comes a horde of zombies descending upon the island. Zombies can be found everywhere, but hordes tend to cluster in specific locations.

The Storm King PvE event from Save the World has been brought into the Battle Royale mode as a co-op Limited Time Mode boss battle for 20 players. It’s Fortnite’s first instance of what’s commonly known as a Raid battle in co-op online games. You’ll need to face off against the Storm King several times, as a number of challenges are tied to his defeat.

The biggest addition to Fortnite are all the spooky Halloween cosmetics that you can purchase. You’ll find lots of zombie outfits, the Storm King’s pickaxe, and several spooky bundles, including the Cryptic Curse bundle and Final Reckoning Pack. Completing challenges will unlock style options for some of the new outfits.

The Fortnitemares event ends November 4. Fortnite is rated T for Teen and available on PC (Epic Games Store), PlayStation 4, Switch, Xbox One, and mobile devices.
