The fourth and final teaser for the upcoming Fortnitemares event in Fortnite has been released, confirming the date that the event begins, but don’t get your hopes up if you think it’s going to reveal a great deal more.

The teasers have been released on a daily basis since October 20 and some fans were convinced that the images were fitting together to make a larger picture, but number four is nothing more than the words ‘Fortnitemares Tomorrow!’ on a purple background, so it looks like that idea can be disregarded now.

On the other hand, another four verses of poetry have been included in the image caption so, if all of the stanzas are in chronological order, the entire poem should now be complete.

The latest addition to the aforementioned poem reads:

“The crack of lightning
Illuminates your wins
Arise, dark ones-
The fight begins.”

While most of the information about the Fortnitemares event is currently unconfirmed, we know the start date is on October 24 and a leak on PlayStation from October 22 seems to show that it will run all the way through to November 26, so expect something pretty substantial!

The event ‘rewards’ section in that same leak also stated that “Spooky rewards await those who complete the new Fortnitemare Challenges.”

Stay tuned for more information about the exciting new event as it becomes available. For the time being, we’ll leave you with what we assume is the completed Fortnitemares poem:

Costumes and dancing,
Partner up, be wise.
They could be friendly,
Or a ghoul in disguise.

Tombstones quake,
Keep you fingers steady.
The circle will close, 
Better be ready.

Take the shot, 
If you have enough to last. 
The wind calls out, 
“Fill your chambers, fast.”

The crack of lightning
Illuminates your wins 
Arise, dark ones- 
The fight begins.

With each passing week in Fortnite Chapter 2: Season 4, Epic Games is advancing a secret storyline hidden in plain sight. You can earn a ton of experience every step of the way and we’ve got you covered on the latest part of the Challenge. 

Ever since Season 2 of Chapter 2, secret Challenges have been hidden under the surface across Fortnite. While your standard weekly objectives are still present, there’s been another surprising way to earn XP almost every week this season.

While the storyline originally depicted a war between gnomes and teddy bears, it has since evolved. Over the past few weeks, players have been uncovering a deadly scheme. Gnomes were looking to annihilate the battle royale map. However, if you followed our guide on the previous steps, you would have put a stop to this already.

The ‘Downfall’ part of this narrative may be wrapped up, but the story continues this week. There’s a new secret Challenge for you to unravel so here’s what you need to know to get through it.

Gnomes have secretly been plotting behind the scenes this season.

First and foremost, to start this section of the Challenge, every single bomb will need to be defused. Once that’s sorted, your next job is to find the gnome behind the chaos. As the name of this new step implies, Most Wanted sprays are key.

There are three of these sprays around the map and all of them highlight a rather ominous looking gnome. These can be found at The Shark, Camp Cod, and Hydro 16. 

For the first location, simply enter the shark and look to the left side of its mouth. Next up, search for a broken building on the Northern side of the Camp Cod island. You’ll find the spray underneath. Last but not least, Hydro 16’s spray can be found above the dock.

Fortunately, you only need to head to one of these spots in order to complete this part of the secret Challenge. As soon as you head to the nearest spray, 10,000XP will be yours just like that.

There’s a good chance players might stumble upon these sprays without even know what they are. However, it’s a neat little reward for players that have been paying extremely close attention to the weekly narrative.

The evil gnome plan has been put to an end and the most wanted spray has been discovered. So what’s next? With a few weeks left in the season, we’re likely heading towards another catastrophic event.

As Galactus barrels towards the map, and we potentially get thrown back to the original battlegrounds, maybe the gnomes will try to take credit for what the devourer of worlds has in store.
