Epic Games has announced that Fortnite is set to get a Halloween update in the form of the Fortnitemares update that’ll bring content for both Save the World and Battle Royale.
Epic Games has a Halloween bag fool of goodies for Fortnite this Halloween season in the form of content and overall game improvements. First, for the “Save the World” campaign, which is currently in paid early access is set to get new stoty missions, a new “Hexsylvania” area, Halloween-themed creatures, new weapons, and much more.
As for Battle Royale, this PvP mode won’t be left out in the cold, it too will be getting more content, as well as the addition of leaderboards, account levelling and progression, and the first cosmetic items for heroes. It’ll also be getting a bunch of quality of life improvements!
These cosmetic items will be available to purchase in the newly implemented store using something called V-Bucks. Unfortunately the patch notes do not state whether V-Bucks can be earned in-game or whether they’re solely paid-for currency. But either way, players can now customise their character as well as their glider and resource gathering tool.
The Fortnitemares update is rolling out right now, so get it while it’s hot. For more info and screenshots of the new features for both Save the World and Battle Royale, head on over to the Fortnite Blog.
