The Fortnite community has been given its first real look at live gameplay with the new ‘Galaxy’ skin.

Popular Twitch streamer Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins went live on August 21 showcasing the highly anticipated skin on both the mobile and PC version of the game.

Ninja started things off with a YouTube video that showed him unboxing a special Fortnite Supply Drop that Samsung had sent him.

In the box were a few pieces of tech, memorabilia, and, most importantly, the brand new Samsung Galaxy Note 9, pre-loaded with Fortnite and the new Galaxy skin.

With the Note 9 schedule to launch on August 24, Ninja got the chance to try it and the new skin early, which he showcased in the video below.

He then proceeded to jump into a PC match with fellow streamer ‘Timthetatman,’ marking the first time that the Galaxy skin made an appearance in a public Fortnite match on PC.

Both Ninja and Tim did not hold back when raving about the new skin, with both claiming that it is the best in the history of the game.


“Dude I’m sorry, like listen. I’m going to completely honest with you guys. This skin, this is the best skin in the game, facts. And I’m sorry, I hate to say it.”


“I agree. It just looks so, it’s like a different element. It’s almost like I’m looking into the galaxy, like space. So good job, whoever made this skin.”

Here is some additional PC gameplay taken later on from the very same stream:

Since it was leaked several weeks ago, the Galaxy skin has been the main topic of conversation when it comes to Fortnite cosmetic items.

For now, the skin is only available to those who preorder the Samsung Galaxy Note 9, but new information has been leaked that points to it eventually being made available to all players.

Although Ninja has gotten his chance to debut the skin in-game, everyone else will have to wait for the device to drop on August 24 to be able to try it out for themselves.

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.
