A second teaser in as many days has been released by Epic Games for the upcoming, and very mysterious ‘Fortnitemares’ event in Fortnite Battle Royale.

Previously an in-game event in the Save the World mode back in Halloween 2017, it looks like Fortnitemares is making its way to Battle Royale this year.

However, with only two cryptic teasers released, fans are still unsure as to what exactly it will entail.

Teaser one, released on October 20, showed an image of an as yet unreleased skin, wearing what appeared to be Calamity’s hat, along with a poem about your duo being either a friend or a ‘ghoul’ in disguise.

The tease of a new skin makes it almost certain that new cosmetic items will be a part of whatever form Fortnitemares is to take in the battle royale mode, and the second teaser may be yet another.

A poem is included along with an image of a rune trapped in chains, which some fans reckon could be a new pickaxe, or perhaps back bling.

Tombstones quake,
Keep your finger steady.
The circle will close,
Better be ready.

So the first teaser very specifically mentioned duos, while this time we get a mention of the storm, so perhaps, if it is a new game mode(s), then there will be a new storm effect too.

Whatever it is, fans can expect it soon, as October is ramping up towards Halloween fast. We can probably expect a third teaser tomorrow too, which will hopefully start to put the pieces together.

This second teaser also obviously relates to the floating islands and mysterious runes on the map, which was possibly building up to Fortnitemares this whole time.


Ali-A reveals unreleased Fortnite skin haunting Weeping Woods

Popular Fortnite YouTuber Ali-A has shown that the previously leaked Madcap skin looks to be coming soon as a mobile glitch has revealed a strange character ‘haunting’ Weeping Woods. 

Across the different Fortnite seasons and updates, Epic Games have released a vast amount of cosmetics – with fans picking out their favorites and donning them in-game. 

Typically, these skins are leaked ahead of time as leakers are able to decrypt games files that are added to the mix with each new update and patch. Some of these skins never see the light of day, or are held back for quite a while, despite being leaked following a patch. 

One of the skins that falls into this category is the Madcap – a glowing, purple, Mushroom-themed skin. It was leaked quite a while back, and while it hasn’t been available just yet, it looks like it will be pretty soon.

Each new Fortnite update leaks a whole host of skins.

Popular YouTuber Ali-A pointed out that some Fortnite mobile players on Android had spotted the outline of a skin sitting around in Weeping Woods. 

The character that seems to be ‘haunting’ the POI, is stood under a tree with their arms crossed. However, it’s not colorful. Instead, it’s a blacked-out silhouette – almost as if it’s going to be added soon, but is showing up as a visual glitch in-game. 

Ali-A noted that the character is most definitely Madcap because of the shape of the head, and given that he’s hanging around Weeping Woods, there might be a challenge or quest line involved with unlocking the skin.

Even though the YouTuber’s speculation seems pretty spot on, there’s no telling if he’s right just yet because Epic Games hasn’t announced anything. 

It could very well be that, as Fortnitemares unfolds, the skin will finally be available through the item shop and there are also challenges in Weeping Woods to unlock skin styles. Though, we’ll just have to wait and see.
