The new update is a Halloween update. There are new items in the shop. There are also new Halloween themes in the map. Among them: Cube monsters players must fend off while also trying to stay alive during the game’s popular Battle Royale mode, where 100 players compete in a last-man-standing style match. Players will gain access to new weapons such as a six-shooter and field hunter crossbow. The update also adds a Deadfire outfit, a Van Helsing-inspired ensemble featuring a cowboy hat and long trenchcoat. Fortnitemares will also add extra challenges, which give away experience points when completed. During the event, players gain extra experience by destroying cube monsters or dealing damage to them with specific weapons. Epic said the event has been temporarily disabled on Battle Royale while they look into issues with player matchmaking.
