Patch Notes

Epic sent out the following patch notes to creators Tuesday night:

Ghostly new gameplay

  • “Fortnitemares returns with a terrifying twist in solos, duos, and squads! What was once the Agency has been reclaimed by the ranks of a reawakened mastermind out for revenge. Join his army to fight alongside friend and foe alie and snatch a shadowy victory from the living.”

New challenges

  • “The island is overrun with haunted huts and daunting decorations. Complete new challenges and get a new terrifying ‘back bling,’ pickaxe, XP, and more.”

Loot-pool changes: Trick-or-treat edition

  • “We’re vaulting the charge shotgun; let us know how this changes your play. Ghoulish weapons have returned to aid in the shadowy showdown. Soar through the skies like a witch, while those with a sweet tooth will find new treats quite enhancing. More superpowers are rotating in, so put those fists up.”

The v14.40 update “arises tomorrow, October 21. Downtime starts at approx. 04:00 a.m. ET,” the Fortnite Status account tweeted Tuesday evening.

“Please note the patch size will be larger than normal on PC (approx. 27 GB). This is to make optimizations on PC resulting in a massively reduced Fortnite file size (over 60 GB smaller), smaller downloads for future patches, and improved loading performance.”

Shadow Midas and his reawakened Henchmen have reclaimed what was once The Agency. During Fortnitemares, you’ll follow in their phantom footsteps and haunt your adversaries on the Island.

After being eliminated in Solo, Duos, or Squads, return to battle as a Shadow for your shot at a Nitemare Royale. Join fellow Shadows to defeat survivors by using your otherworldly abilities, like possessing the body of vehicles…

Map Changes

Witch Shacks can be found around the map, this is where you can find brooms.

Heart Lake POI

A new POI is being added to the game, called 'Heart Lake'.

@HYPEX found some ambient audio effects in the game’s files, for a “Wood Area”, “Brick Area” and “Metal Area”.

Not only do they give off an eerie vibe, but a second dataminer, Mang0e pointed out their similarity to Fortnimare’s Save the World dungeons from last year, perhaps we’ll see them used in a POI or an LTM in the Battle Royale!

Leaks

Like any Fortnite event, we already have an ample amount of leaks.

The first comes in from HYPEX; who notes that @intercelluar spotted some unfinished NPCs within the game files.

We will have to wait and see what else gets leaked in the coming weeks!

Marvel Comics

As the Halloween event approaches, many players will be wondering what will happen to the Marvel theme in Fortnite.

Will it coincide with Halloween or will it be forgotten about for a week?

It wouldn't be a surprise to see a number of Marvel superheroes features as item shop skins in the event.

A number of references to superheroes, yet to be released, have been found in the game and through images.

We could see the likes of Ghost Rider and Venom, some more Halloween friendly superheroes, pop up at some point during the event.
