The Fortnite Halloween update is all set to drop today at 4:00 AM EST (1:30 PM IST), and from the looks of it, Epic Games has a lot in store for player come this spooky season.

For starters, various leaks from prominent data leakers, the likes of which include HYPEX and Sizzy, have pointed towards Fortnitemares 2020 primarily revolving around Midas’ revenge.

For the uninitiated, during the start of Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 3, we saw Midas being dragged away by a shark while he was floating in the middle of the ocean. Some would say that was the end of his saga. The entire ‘Ghost vs Shadow’ storyline has been put on hold since this disappearance of the golden mischief-maker.
