The third installment of Shortnite is here to spook, scare, fright, and delight in Fortnitemares 2021! 

Starting on October 28 at 6 PM ET and running until November 1 at 6 PM ET, Shortnitemares will be made up of seven horror-themed animated short films. 


How to Watch Shortnitemares

To watch any of the Shortnitemares films, select the “Shortnitemares” playlist and head into the Shortnitemares Theater (built by creator team Quantum Builds). 

Each film will have its own room, giving you control of which ones you watch and when you watch them. You can also choose to watch on the main screen (in the “festival room”), where all the films will be running in a loop for the duration of Shortnitemares. 

Want to watch while getting a Victory Royale? No problem. Picture-in-Picture will be available again, accessible through the settings.

A butter sense of the Butter Buddy Emote:

Bring some friends or watch solo, grab some popcorn, and (if you’re brave enough) turn off the lights. See you there… if you dare.
