Warner Bros. and Epic Games are teaming up to launch the Fortnite: Darkfire Bundle and it’s already being called the biggest content pack ever to come to the game.

This new retail bundle will appear in stores for $30 and feature $80 worth of in-game cosmetics, ranging from skins, back blings, pickaxes, wraps, and emotes.

Featuring 13 items in total, this is the biggest content bundle to ever arrive in Fortnite quite easily and it’ll be available worldwide.

@VastBlastt, TwitterCould these be the skins included in the Darkfire bundle?

What’s in the bundle?

This cosmetic pack is massive and there’s a lot being stuff in here for such a low price – by Fortnite pricing standards that is.

By picking up the bundle, you will be able to get your hands on the following gear:

  • Three Legendary outfits
  • Three Legendary back blings
  • Three Rare dual-wielding pickaxes
  • Three Epic wraps
  • One new emote

What we are missing is images of them, but it’s safe to assume those will be revealed down the line. 

It’s expected that they will look something along the lines of the leaked cosmetics that were found in the 10.20 update by VastBlast, although it’s worth noting that things found in the data files are always subject to change before being added to the full game.

If you’re a big Fortnite fan, it’ll definitely be worth picking up the bundle for the sheer amount of cosmetics alone.

What platforms is it available on?

You’ll be able to pick up the Darkfire bundle on PS4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch either in stores or through the respective digital marketplace.

It doesn’t sound like PC or mobile players will be included with this, but considering how you can link your account across multiple platforms, there will still be a way to get the cosmetics on those platforms.

Darkfire bundle release date

For those wanting to get their hands on it, you will have to wait until November 5 – which is exactly two months from this initial announcement.

This release date has likely been set later down the road so that it can remain a potentially hot holiday gift for children, as parents will no doubt be looking to snap up some Fortnite-related stuff around that time.

Epic Games have rolled out their spooky Fortnitemares update in Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 4 and there’s a load of map changes to talk about. Here, we look through everything that’s changed in patch v14.40. 

The game is always in line for a wild update every Halloween and the same has happened this year. The dark forces of the battle royale world have come back from the shadows, all to celebrate the return of Midas – who disappeared earlier in the season.

Now, with the huge update on October 21 comes a shakeup for the game’s ever-changing map.

So, let’s run through everything you need to know for the next time you jump from the Battle Bus.

Fortnite Halloween update map changes


Fortnite Witchshacks
Epic Games
These Witchshacks have some very useful items inside.

One of the first things players will notice is that a number of Witchshacks have been dotted around the island. These were found by leaker FortTory, soon after the patch rolled out.

You have to feel, just because of the nature of them and the fact brooms can be found inside, that these will soon become hotspots for players dropping in.

Midas return location

Also found by FortTory is this Midas location, which looks to be his return location.

This appears to be the place where Midas will rise once again, with candles lit in a circle and the throne sitting in the background.

Soon enough, we’ll get to see what happens here, but an interesting addition nonetheless.

The Ruins POI: Fortnitemares

Here’s how it looks in-game.

The game’s middle point of interest has been given a spooky makeover, called The Ruins.

Surrounded by ghouls and who knows what, this could be one of the most dangerous places for members of the community moving forward.

Halloween decorations

Fortnite Halloween props
Epic Games
If entering haunted houses is your thing, Fortnite is definitely worth playing this Halloween.

Some players will have seen many of these prior to the update, but much of the settlements in Epic Games’ popular title are now filled with Halloween props on the inside and out.

Here, we can see huge spiders placed on buildings and webs, so get used to seeing that.

We’ll be updating this article with more map changes as we find them…

Fortnitemares trailer

Last, but not least, you can check out the official Fortnitemares trailer – showing off all of the new features.

It was posted to the Fortnite Twitter account on October 21, once the patch rolled out.

So, there you have it! A jam-packed update for players to sink their teeth into this October.
