Fortnite’s Spooky Fortnitemares Event Returns with Iconic Character Skins and Rewards
Epic Games is reviving the much-anticipated Halloween-inspired Fortnitemares event for Fortnite, promising new rewards and iconic character skins. Fortnite’s enduring popularity as a Battle Royale game owes much to its live service approach. Players not only receive regular updates and seasonal content but also enjoy exciting crossovers with a diverse array of franchises, spanning video games, movies, TV shows, and comic book characters from Marvel and DC.
This live service model ensures the introduction of holiday-themed content, with October marking the annual return of the Halloween-inspired Fortnitemares event. In past years, Fortnitemares has embraced the spooky season by introducing new weapons, skins, and innovative game modes, often involving cooperative efforts to vanquish Cube Monsters in Horde Rush. Each iteration of Fortnitemares has held surprises, and this year appears to be no different.
Accompanied by a brief trailer, an official Fortnite blog post provided a comprehensive overview of the Fortnitemares 2023 event. Following in the footsteps of previous years, the 2023 event introduces prominent character skins, including Alan Wake, the legendary horror figure Michael Myers, and Jack Skellington from “The Nightmare Before Christmas.” Alongside these character skins, players can expect emotes, back blings, and gliders tied to each character.
