Fortnitemares 2020 Brings New Items and the Return of Midas

Halloween is fast approaching and that means Fortnitemares is back! This is the third year that the spooky event has returned to the battle royale island of “Fortnite.” For this event, players put on their spookiest gear and prepare to take each other down. If you die, you will rise from the grave as a Shadow. Shadows utilize their otherworldy abilities for one purpose- to kill all of the living players. So be careful, every player you slay is coming back for revenge.

If that’s not enough, the villain Midas makes his return to the game. This time around, Midas has taken control of the Authority. Get too close to his stronghold and he will send his army of Shadows to destroy you! You know what they say, the enemy of my enemy is my friend. So maybe it’s time for you to utilize Midas’ new invention and take down your adversaries.

Keep Going!

Rewards include items like the Smash O’-Lantern Pickaxe, the Bobo Back Bling, Midas’ Shadow Wrap, the Pumpkin Rocket Launcher and much more. Never fear!
