After days of teasing the upcoming event, the start and end date of the Fortnitemares event has finally been revealed.
Every day since Saturday, October 20, Epic Games have been releasing cryptic teasers pointing towards a new Halloween event that will hit the game soon.
The teasers have featured pictures and stanzas to a poem that seemed to be forming a puzzle made up of four pieces that, when finished, would paint a full picture of the event.
While Epic Games has yet to release the fourth and final teaser along with the starting dates, a PlayStation event seems to have leaked both the start and end dates of the event.
Right on schedule following the pattern of one teaser per day with the final one expected on October 23, the event is set to kick off on Wednesday, October 24 and is set to run all the way through Monday, November 26.
The event details further provide that “Spooky rewards await those who complete the new Fortnitemare Challenges.”
While there was no official Halloween event back in 2017 when Fortnite Battle Royale was first released, Epic Games released a set of Halloween skins that quickly became the rarest in the game. They also made many changes to the game, including rocket launchers that shot pumpkins and a Halloween-themed menu screen.
There’s no word yet on what skins or other rewards will be available this time around, but given Epic’s track record with holiday-themed skins and the build-up to this event, fans are expecting something amazing.
While we await the final piece of the puzzle that’s expected to hit on October 23, you can read the three stanzas of the poem that have been released thus far:
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.”
