In the previous Halloweens, the community has seen massive celebrations with a lot of cosmetics being gifted. Festive seasons are always something to look forward to in Fortnite.

As of now, from all the information that can be gathered, it seems that a new lobby will be added. Just like every year, however, this time out, players are wondering why it isn't out there yet. Indeed Fortnite has created some iconic lobby backgrounds that have attracted players to try out the game more often during festive seasons. The update 14.30 gave us just a hint of what is about to come.

Halloween is a tradition that has been celebrated in Fortnite ever since its inception. Thus, expecting it to have famous personalities in it might bring in more players. We have seen Epic Games do so with Travis Scott, BTS, Dj Slushii, Marshmello, and many other artists. This time out, it's Columbian singer J Balvin. Things just keep getting better for Fortnite players and fans.


According to HYPEX's Tweet, "There will be an upcoming 'Dancefloor Soldier' skin for Fortnitemares." Description: "He showed up to the party a couple of centuries earlier than expected.

What else will be there in Fortnitemares 2020?

Fortnitemares usually take place during the ending half of October. Like every year, traditionally, it will all start with a new look for the lobby. Hopefully, Epic Games will come up with something that is aesthetically pleasing as well as prevalent with current conditions. They have, without a doubt, ensured that Fortnite becomes one of the best games out there, enmeshed in popular culture.

Simultaneously, several new weapons, skins, consumables have been leaked by data miners. For instance, HYPEX discovered that Candy Buckets would be added in the game to distribute consumables as a part of Fortnitemares. According to Hypex, these are the following ones making their way to Fortnite.

Upcoming consumables in Fortnitemares: - Wbroom - Pepper Ming - Hop Drop - Candy Corn - Jelly Bean - Thermal Taffy.

Similarly, Brooms might be added to the game for mobility during Halloween time. It is a given that new Halloween LTMs will take over Fortnitemares. Things will become much more enjoyable with the developments. iFireMonkey also made an educated guess based on the previous Fortnitemares dates. It looks like this year Fortnitemares might be between 27-29th October. Although, there is no assurance whether Epic has another surprise up their sleeves.

ShiinaBR also reported that "The current design of the battle bus is activated until Wednesday at 3 am ET. At that time, it must be replaced by another battle bus design. So there is a chance that we'll have a downtime this week, in which the new battle bus stage (or Fortnitemares battle bus) will be added!"

Players are wondering whether this will be based on Tony Stark's design. However, there is a good chance that it will have both Marvel and Halloween elements in it. Thus, with all these leaks, the Fortnite community is looking forward to the Halloween week quite eagerly.
