Fortnitemares Challenges Ended Earlier Than Planned

Epic had to pull Fortnite's Halloween-themed challenges a little earlier than originally planned "due to an issue," but it will have a make-good for players.


Fortnite's Halloween-themed Fortnitemares challenges have ended a little earlier than originally planned. The official Fortnite Status Twitter account announced that the special Halloween challenges had to be pulled a day early "due to an issue."

Developer Epic didn't share any further details on what the issue in question is, but it did note that it plans to compensate players for ending the challenges early. "We apologize for the inconvenience and are working on a make good plan for affected players," the studio said via Twitter.

Although the Fortnitemares challenges are now over, there's still a lot happening in the battle royale game this week. Epic is introducing Ghost Rider to Fortnite this Wednesday, November 4, as part of its latest Marvel Knockout Super Series tournament. Players who place high enough during the competition will unlock the character skin for free, while everyone else will be able to purchase it in the game's item shop for $20 USD some time after the tournament.

In the meantime, Epic recently rolled out a new set of Season 4 challenges to complete. Some of Week 10's trickier challenges ask you to fish at Heart Lake and find chests in Upstate New York. There are also a variety of Marvel challenges to complete during the Marvel Knockout mode.

Fortnite is one of many games that will be playable on both PS5 and Xbox Series X and Series S when those systems launch next week. Epic has shared more details on the next-gen upgrades Fortnite will get across both platforms, which includes many visual and performance enhancements like 4K resolution, dynamic physics, and faster loading.
