Spooky season is coming to the Island of Fortnite this Halloween, and the arrival of the Cube Queen is sending shivers down every player’s spine. This year’s Fortnitemares is shaping to be it’s biggest one yet, and here’s what’s going on this Halloween. 

There’s various activities this Halloween in the popular battle royale. Like every Fortnitemare event, there’s a huge plethora of games, rewards, and cool events players can partake in. The majority of content available is free, so many F2P players can still get a kick out of Halloween this year.

The biggest feature this year is the return of Horde Rush. This wild game mode is reminiscent of other survival game genres, pitting four players against a world full of fiends. Four players are placed on one team, and the objective is to survive three waves of an onslaught of cube monsters. At the end is a boss that must be defeated to win the game, and it’s a difficult fight. But winning is oh-so satisfying.

There’s also a large plethora of Halloween-themed cosmetics that players can unlock or purchase during Fortnitemares. Fortnite has already introduced a variety of guest characters for players to buy, such as Universal Studios “The Mummy” and Resident Evil’s Chris and Jill. Players can also complete challenges to unlock cosmetics, like a Ghostbusters back bling or the Cube Queen skin.

On top of it all, the island has a new spooky coat of paint. The various POIs now have Halloween décor and the island has an overall spookier vibe now that the Queen has invaded. 

Fortnitemares is scheduled to run from now until Nov. 2.
