The “Refund” feature for Fortnite Battle Royale, which allows players to refund purchased cosmetics for the very first time, looks set to return before the end of May.

The V3.6.0 patch for Fortnite Battle Royale was released on April 24th, introducing a number of new bug fixes and items, including the all-new clinger Grenade.

One of the biggest changes was the all-new “Self-Service Cosmetic Returns Feature”, which allowed you to return a total of three cosmetic purchases for V-Bucks.

Eligible items for the refund feature were Emotes, Gliders, Harvesting Tools, Back Bling, and Outfits but it only allowed a total of three refunds and it had to be used within 30 days of an item being purchased.

The feature was well received by the Fortnite community but it didn’t last long as Epic Games disabled it temporarily on April 24th due to an undisclosed issue.

There have been a number of rumors about when the feature will return but a change to its status on the official Fortnite Trello board shows it as “Fixed In Next Release” which means it should return in the next update.

The next major update is likely to be released on Tuesday, May 29th so players could be refunding their unwanted items again in no time.

A leaked email on May 21st seemed to show Epic Games stating that the refund feature would  “be live by June 1st”. Some people took that to mean “on” June 1st but the new information suggests that “by” was the important word in that sentence.

The function should also return with “some usability improvements”. Whether this means there will be any changes to the limitations is currently unknown.

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

Epic Games
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.
