The highly-anticipated annual Halloween-themed Fortnite event, Fortnitemares, is almost upon us.

This year too, promises to be no different as according to numerous leaks, Epic has a lot of exciting new stuff up their sleeves.
Moreover, it will certainly be interesting to see how the Halloween-themed event ties into the present Marvel superhero-themed Fortnite universe. Moreover, the recent addition of Fortnite skins such as Blade and Victoria Saint seems to be perfectly in tune with the essence of Halloween, as a Ghost Rider skin is also expected to follow suit.
According to data miners, we have already caught a glimpse of all the potential upcoming skins. Popular Fortnite streamer Ali "SypherPK" Hassan recently released a YouTube video where he guided viewers through all the Halloween leaks so far.
