The annual Halloween event for Fortnite called Fortnitemares will return in October, according to Epic Games. Holidays are when live service games like Fortnite thrive, and Halloween is particularly thrilling and alluring. Unsurprisingly, Halloween and Fortnite have a lengthy relationship dating back to Season 1. Every year since, the Halloween event has returned in fresh, spookily inventive ways, and Fortnite users have been eager to learn more about what the event has in store for 2022. However, they will have to wait a little while longer before learning more about this year’s Fortnitemares.
The most likely model for what Epic Games has in store for this Halloween will be Fortnitemares 2021. Fortnitemares received a wave of Halloween-themed maps, games, and experiences from Epic Games in 2021. For better or worse, the attention was on the expensive Halloween clothes that were made available in Fortnite’s market. But there were also unique objectives centered on the Cube Queen, and players may use the Dual Fiend Hunters weapon in battle royale.
The only information Epic has provided for Fortnitemares 2022 is a teaser indicating the event will start on October 18. The sole indication is what appears to be a purple crystaline wolf with blazing red eyes in Epic’s Fortnitemares teaser. On October 18, Fortnite gamers still don’t know what to expect, but that’s part of what makes the yearly Halloween event so exciting.
