Here’s what else is in your fortune this month. 🎴🃏🎴

Iconic Fiends, Creatures, and Costumes

Fortnitemares 2021 has many new and returning Halloween Outfits in store. Some of what to expect? Throughout the month, cards will reveal legendary monsters making their way to the Fortnite Item Shop, as well as classic Fortnite characters getting new Halloween twists. With each Item Shop debut, a card will flip over in this evolving page. Take a look at the card to see who’s entering the Item Shop, and see the backs of other cards for hints at who’s next.
Want some reveals now? Iconic creatures include the Universal Pictures-inspired Frankenstein’s Monster and The Mummy, part of the Universal Monsters Set! Keep up with the card flip page and our social channels to see when they storm into the Item Shop. (The Mummy will also be lurching on the Island as a Character later in the month, trying to find his way home to the Underworld.)

Also, throughout October, you can visit the Battle Bus and Fortnite cosplay characters at Universal CityWalk, adjacent to Universal Studios Hollywood. Different characters will appear throughout the month, with special appearances by new Fortnitemares characters the day they go live in the Item Shop! Stop by and take a picture.

A New Side of The Cubes’ Plan...

The Cubes are mobilizing for the next step of their plan. Later in the month, they'll escalate their domination of the Island. But take heart! Strengthen your resolve with a new weapon from The Sideways and returning Halloween tricks. A special LTM will be returning as well...
During this Cubic chaos, there’ll also be Quests to accomplish for eerie rewards.

Get Some Scares at Shortnitemares

Fortnitemares 2021 will be wrapping up with the third Short Nite film festival! Like previous Short Nites, “Shortnitemares” will feature animated shorts — but this time, the shorts will be based on the ghoulish and sinister. Also, this Short Nite will take place in a creator-made movie theater (created by Quantum Builds), where each short’ll have its own theater room. Choose the order you watch them in, or watch them all in a loop in the festival room.
We’ll share more details on Shortnitemares closer to the show. Consider this your invite card! 🎴
