As teased, Fortnite's Fortnitemares event has returned. The Halloween-themed festivities are now underway on PS4, Xbox One, PC, Nintendo Switch, and mobile devices, and they include new limited-time modes, along with a new set of challenges to complete and some devilish skins and other cosmetics to earn.
Headlining this year's Fortnitemares event are three special LTMs. The first is called Storm King, and it has players taking on the titular super boss. This mode, however, is currently disabled while Epic addresses an issue. Additionally, the developer has highlighted two community-made LTMs: Gun Fright and Mansion of Power.
Alongside the LTMs is a set of Storm King challenges. These are, fittingly, Halloween-themed, and they have you destroying haunted household furniture, searching chests in a ghost town, and leaping out of hideouts when unsuspecting players are nearby. Complete the challenges and you'll unlock Halloween-themed cosmetics, including a special Storm Sail umbrella.
Finally, Epic has added the Cryptic Curse Bundle to the in-game store, which includes the Phantom Outfit and Time Keeper Back Bling. You can unlock different styles for both of these cosmetics by completing the Cryptic Curse challenges. Fortnitemares runs until November 4. You can read more about the event on the official Fortnite website.
Epic kicked off Chapter 2 of Fortnite earlier this month, and it made a ton of changes to the hit battle royale game. Not only are there new mechanics like fishing and weapon upgrading, but the map has also been revamped, and a variety of new challenges are already available.
