Learn More About ‘Fortnite’s’ Fortnitemares 2018 Update

Epic Games has dropped a trailer to introduce the Fortnitemares 2018 title update for Fortnite, which is now live. The update brings new content to the game’s Battle Royale and Save the World modes, and it is themed after the upcoming Halloween holiday. You can check out the updates for each mode below. There’s also a new trailer to check out above.

Battle Royale

During Fortnitemares, you’ll face off against Cube Monsters in a whole new way of playing Battle Royale. There are new weapons to fight back against these creepy creatures, like the Six Shooter and Fiend Hunter Crossbow. Take out the Cube Fiends and Fragments to pick up loot, and survive against enemy players.

Make sure you’re lookin’ good while the darkness descends and pick up the new Deadfire Outfit. This new type of reactive outfit features in-match progression, giving you a way to show off your skills in style. The outfit will progress through 2 styles based on the damage you deal enemies (players and AI) and how long you last in a match.  Deadfire also comes with the Shackled Stone Back Bling and you can pick up his matching Dark Shard pickaxe in the store, both of these are reactive cosmetics.

Fortnitemares has its own set of free challenges. Complete each challenge set to unlock a new in-game cosmetic.

These are the first set of challenges:

  • Destroy Cube Monsters
  • Deal damage with Assault Rifles or Pistols to Cube Monsters
  • Visit a Corrupted Area in different matches
  • Dance at different Gargoyles

Come back every few days for a new set of challenges and new rewards! If you complete the final set of challenges, you’ll be rewarded with the Dark Engine glider!

Save the World

The spooky scenery of Hexsylvania has returned…  Explore the world as Fortnitemares descends upon the landscape. Play through multiple sets of story quests and earn new rewards as you fight the fright alongside your friends.

Here’s just a slice of the content coming to Save the World during Fortnitemares:

  • Brainiac Jonesy and Skull Ranger Ramirez (Free to Founders)
  • New and returning Fortnitemares Heroes.
  • Rat Rod Weapon Set
  • And a few more surprises along the way…

You can find more details on the 6.20 update via Epic Games.
