Well, Respawn certainly hasn’t disappointed when it comes to Halloween, announcing that the Fight or Fright event will kick off four weeks of spooky content.

With the return of Control, Shadow Royale, and Gun Run on the Olympus After Dark map as well as a variety of brand new cosmetics, this year’s Halloween event is going to be one to remember.

As correctly noted in the leaks, Fight or Fright will mark the debut of the Olympus After Dark map, a spooky rework of the fan-favorite location.

While this version of the map will not be available in the standard battle royale mode, it will feature in the Control, Shadow Royale, and Gun Run rotations.

With a completely different skybox and a darkly-lit setting to do battle, the LTMs are definitely going to be more exciting on Olympus After Dark
