Fright and Delight: The Fortnitemares Callout

The Fortnite Team
The time has come to start thinking ‘bout the season of scares. Will you fright and delight players, or create the most eclectic Halloween party experience for friends to enjoy? Have your players survive scary environments, solve spooky puzzles, or feel overwhelming dread in asymmetric PvP… or come up with something truly new and scary.

Make your best Fortnitemares-themed islands by utilizing recently-released devices and your island could be featured in Discover during this year’s Fortnitemares!
Fortnitemares is about enjoying the fun vibe of the season —  not high combat. Please stay on theme by following the design guidelines below. We can’t wait to see what you come up with!

Island Design Guidelines

  • Many new players arrive each year  for Fortnitemares. Help lure them to your islands by making sure your island is clear and understandable for new players to really sink their fangs into!
  • Old scares just don’t scare like they used to, so be sure to make use of the new devices and mechanics added in 2022. Deliver jumpy haunted houses with the Prop Manipulator, create terrifying caves with the Level Instance device, and encourage your visitors to spring, slide, and mantle over obstacles to get away from all the scary monsters and other creative creatures you can come up with.
  • Be creative with Eliminations. Have your players fall victim to zombies, get lost in a backroom or maze during a storm, and meet their demise in other creative ways. Games don’t have to be about eliminations, but bring that tension and drama to your island! 
  • Bring the scary energy to your island however you can, but feel free to bring your own spin on Fortnitemares! Zombie Dance Party, Haunted Houses, and Creepy Corn Mazes are always fun, but evolve and remix them for your personal vision of a Fortnitemare! Be unique with your content, and design for the best chance to be featured!
