Halloween is just around the corner and that means one thing for Fortnite fans: the return of Fortnitemares, the annual scary October event. This year's event is called Midas' Revenge and it revolves around a creepy theme of the undead. The event is available on all platforms and as expected, there are a number of new challenges and rewards.
"Shadow Midas and his resurrected henchmen have taken back what was once The Agency," wrote Epic Games in a blog post announcing the event. "During Fortnitemares you will step in their phantom tracks and pursue your opponents on the island.
“After you've been eliminated in Solo, Duos, or Squads, return to battle as a shadow for your shot at a Nitemare Royale. Join other shadows to defeat survivors by using your otherworldly skills, like owning vehicles … "
One of the fun ways the concept of the undead is incorporated into the game is through a feature in Battle Royale Island that allows killed players to return as shadows and kill players who are still alive. The shadows can also take control of vehicles for chaotic, scary fun.
The event also sees the return of Spy Boss and fan-favorite character Midas, who roams the ruins as a shadow beast.
As you'd expect from a Fortnite event, there are fun extras dotted around the island like a pumpkin rocket launcher, a fiend hunter's crossbow, and a witch's broom to take with you. Epic also promises that there will be some mysterious candy left for the shadows too, who knows what purpose.
And it wouldn't be an event without challenges and rewards, so you can earn treats like Midas & # 39; Shadow Wrap, the Smash O & # 39; lantern Pickaxe, and Bobo Back Bling. You can rock these for the scary season or roll with them year round if that's your style.
The event is currently live and will run until November 3rd. For more information on completing the Challenges and other helpful tips, check out our Fortnite Guide to Week 4 Challenges, Week 9.
