Epic Games are not done with October Fortnite festivities and the latest event is Fortnitemares 2020: Midas' Revenge event, which is scheduled for kickoff today.
As you can see from the trailer, Epic have got their cinematic shoes on and they've really done a great job. Seriously, they're one Pablo Francisco cameo short of hilarity here.
Forenitemares 2020: Midas' Revenge starts today, October 21, and lasts until November 3, 2020, with a bunch of challenges, cosmetics and even some more musical events.
"Shadow Midas and his reawakened Henchmen have reclaimed what was once The Agency. During Fortnitemares, you’ll follow in their phantom footsteps and haunt your adversaries on the Island", they wrote.
Once you're killed in Solo, Duos or Squads, you get transported to try your luck as a Shadow in Nitemare Royale. You'll join other Shadows in an attempt to defeat survivors with different abilities, one of which is possessing vehicles.
Epic prepared some special Fortnite tricks as well, like the Pumpkin Rocket Launcher, Fiend Hunter Crossbow, the Witch Broom and some new Midas inventions. Yes, apparently there's candy in there as well.
Forenitemares 2020: Midas' Revenge also brings a number of new Challenges, where Fortnite players can unlock special rewards. You can check out some of them on the images, like Midas' Shadow Wrap, the Smash O'-Lantern Pickaxe, Bobo Back Bling and more.
Last but not least is the big Afterlife Party with J Balvin, where he'll be debuting his brand new song ft. Sech. The exact time is October 31 at 9:00pm at (6:00pm PT), and knowing Fortnite's track record with song premiers - it's well worth the visit.
