The Fortnitemares Update Arrives This Week

By The Fortnite Team

Heya Folks,

We’re kicking off the spookiest time of the year in a big way with our Fortnitemares Event, which comes with a brand new zone - Hexsylvania. Get lost in the deep levels of the catacombs, the endless halls of flickering candles or the thick fog creeping across the map!

Horde Bash will be departing on Thursday, Oct. 26 at 4:00 a.m. EDT. If you haven’t challenged the horde yet, try your hand and maybe grab one of the unique Scavenger Heroes!

What will Hexsylvania bring?

In addition to a spooky lobby background you’ll find:
  • ~25 Story Quests
  • Spooky Creatures
    • Pumpkin Head Husk
    • Vampire Taker
  • Spooky Llama
    • Buy it with candy! :D
  • Eight new themed Heroes all getting into the Hexsylvanian spirit! 
    • Each Class/Gender
  • New Weapons
    • Pumpkin Launcher (How else will you defeat the Pumpkin Head Husks??)
    • Grave Digger

Mark your calendars because the Fortnightmares will begin haunting your sleep starting on Thursday, Oct 26. For every 1000 of the tickets you have, those will be automatically converted to Scavenger llamas. Any additional less than 1,000 will not be converted and don't carry over to the new event.

Pick up those last few Scavenger Llamas, there is a spooky spectre on the horizon.
