Fortnite patch v6.20 has gone live and the highly anticipated Fortnitemares 2018 Halloween event is now upon us.
"Fortnitemares 2018 is here, featuring all manner of haunting happenings across Fortnite," explain Epic Games. "Skulk in the shadows to scare your way to a Victory Royale or brave hair-raising husks to complete the weekly new missions. Darkness has risen."
For Battle Royale players, Fortnitemares will include a number of challenges as you face off against 'Cube Monsters'. You'll be able to use the all-new Six Shooter pistol and Fiend Hunter Crossbow to help you in that particular quest. Taking out 'Cube Fiends' and 'Fragments' will allow you to pick up loot and survive against opponents.
Also included is the new 'Dreadfire' skin. A brand new reactive outfit that changes in-match, progressing trough two styles based on the damage that you deal out to opponents and Cube Monsters or how long you survive, the Deadfire outfit is something completely new.
The Deadfire set comes with the Shackled Stone Back Bling and Dark Shard pickaxe, both of which are also 'reactive cosmetics'.
You can also take part in a set of Fortnitemares challenges and receive a cosmetic reward after completing each one. The first list of challenges is as follows:
The challenges will change "every few days" and offer new rewards each time. Completing the final set of those challenges will result in your earning the impressive 'Dark Engine' glider, shown in the image below.
