The world of “Fortnite” is getting a spooky makeover with the
return of Fortnitemares, a Halloween-themed special event that
began on Wednesday.

Fortnitemares debuted last October, but this year will bring new
challenges, weapons, and outfits to celebrate the occasion:

As a part of Fortnitemares, cube fragments in “Fortnite: Battle
Royale” will spawn cube monsters that drop loot and grant players
extra shield when they’re killed. Destroying cube monsters is one
of several new challenges linked to the event, and will help
unlock some of the limited-time Halloween content.

The most sought-after addition will be the new Deadfire outfit,
which will change form mid-match based on player performance. As
the player racks up damage and survives during battle royales,
Deadfire will shift in appearance from a mortal man to a sinister

The Deadfire outfit has matching cosmetic items, too: a pickaxe
called the “Dark Shard,” and the Shackled Stone Back Bling, a
backpack that goes along with the outfit.

Other major additions to “Fortnite: Battle Royale” include the
six shooter — a high caliber pistol — and the ability to redeploy
the glider that drops players into the game at the start.
Previously, players would need an item called the launch pad to
re-use their glider, but now gliders can be used when jumping
from a height of three stories or higher.

You can check out the full list of improvements to the “Battle
Royale” mode with the Fortnitemares patch notes.

Fortnitemares also includes additions to “Fortnite: Save the
World,” the paid mode of the game. Players will see the return of
Hexsylvania, a special zone with an exclusive quest line, or set
of objectives, called Vlad Moon Rising. The quest line has been
upgraded with new narrative content, and all seven event-specific
heroes from last year’s Fortnitemares event can be unlocked once
again. Players can complete quests to unlock the heroes and other
Fortnitemares rewards.

“Save the World,” will also be on sale for 50% off through
November 6th for players who haven’t purchased the “Fortnite”
campaign mode.

Fortnitemares has already begun, but it’s a limited-time event.
The special rewards included will only be available for a few
