Fortnite's Halloween Fortnitemares Event: Start Time And Teaser

"Face your fears."


Fortnite: Battle Royale appears to be teasing another Halloween event, with the return of "Fornitemares." An image on the official Twitter account shows a spooky masked image with the caption "Face Your Fears." It also drops a time to expect the event: October 29 at 9 AM ET.

Aside from that, though, the image doesn't give much clue what to expect from this year's event. Last year's event, also titled "Fortnitemares," introduced a special new mode, challenges, and cosmetic rewards. According to a status update, downtime for the event will begin at 4 AM ET and it will usher in update 11.10.

A follow-up teaser simply says "soon" with a creepy zombie-fied hand.

Fortnite has already gotten into the spooky spirit around the holiday, by bringing back the Skull Trooper and Skull Ranger skins, along with some other creepy crawly cosmetics. Fortnitemares is likely to be the centerpiece of hits Halloween activities, and may offer some exclusives to unlock.
