The Fortnitemares event has started to be teased in Fortnite right into the thick of things. Be it Christmas, Valentine’s Day, or Easter, there’s always something going on.

Yet, the current focus is on Halloween, with the spooky day right around the corner. That means the return of the Fortnitemares and we’ve got you covered on what you need to know about Chapter 2’s first event. 

The Fortnitemares gives fans the chance to celebrate Halloween inside the battle royale.

When does Fortnitemares 2019 start?

Epic Games have announced that Fortnitemares 2019 will kick off on Tuesday, October 29. This was the same date that was revealed by data miners following the start of Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 1. 

As Fortnite updates have returned to their usual Tuesday releases, it will likely require a brief bit of downtime before players are able to explore the spooky content that the developers have lined-up. 

That be available at 9 am EST/1 pm GMT/8 am CDT, and 6 am PST. What else will come in that patch and when the Fortnitemares will end, however, is unknown and we’ll have to wait for another announcement from the developers.

Will Fortnitemares have new cosmetics?

As usual, there will be plenty of new cosmetics for fans to get their hands on with the event. With their start date annoucement, Epic released the Jawbreaker Outfit, Teef Outfit, Goo Glider, Globber Pickaxe, Stickers Pickaxe, and Noshy Wrap to the item shop. 

However, there are other skins lined-up that will add to the terrifying atmosphere. The release times and prices for these, though, are up in the air so you’ll have to keep an eye out. 

What else will be added during Fortnitemares?

Last time out, the Fortnitemares added the Cube Monsters and Pumpkin Launcher to the game – but it remains to be seen if these will both make a return. 

Yet, there should be something in the works considering Epic usually go all-out for their holiday events. The game’s currently shallow loot pool would suggest that it could do with a new item or two, so maybe we’ll see a terrifying trap of some kind.

So, there you have it, everything we know about the Fortnitemares event, which will be the first themed-party in Fortnite Chapter 2.

We’ll keep this post updated with any additional details that arrive before it’s release – especially if there is anything on new loot or cosmetics.

A Fortnite leaker has hinted at when the Halo skin and limited-time mode should be released, but the exact day is still slightly shrouded in mystery. 

Crossovers in Fortnite have been great for fans who want to combine two of their favorite things. In the past, we’ve seen everything from Batman to Stranger Things to a full-blown Marvel-themed season. 

In Chapter 2, Season 5, two more crossovers have joined the battle royale party. The Mandalorian from Star Wars is one of the battle pass skins, while Kratos from God of War has also released as a part of a cosmetics bundle. 

Leaks have suggested that more and more crossovers are coming, with Halo seemingly being the next one to arrive – bringing a Master Chief skin, as well as a few other cosmetics too.

Leaks have also claimed that there will be a Halo-themed, Red vs Blue limited-time mode – somewhat similar to the Marvel Endgame LTM where players were either part of the Avengers or Thanos’ army of minions. 

With Kratos getting his moment in the spotlight as of now, fans are desperate to know when Master Chief and the Halo crossover will take his place. 

Well, according to Fortnite leaker FNBRUnreleased, the Halo crossover is set to happen when the V15.10 update is released. As of writing, there is no concrete date for that, but it shouldn’t be too far away either.

When is Fortnite’s v15.10 update and Winterfest?

The V15.10 update would also, likely, be the patch to bring in the Winterfest celebrations back to Fortnite, so, we’d probably see some map changes too with more snow on the map. 

Last year, Winterfest started on December 18, which was a Wednesday. If Epic Games opt for a similar date this year, we could maybe see it around December 16-17, as they fall on a Wednesday and Thursday.

Ultimately, that is up to Epic, and we’ll just have to wait until they release an update, but hopefully, it won’t be too far away.
