Fortnitemares is one of the most popular Fortnite event which takes place during Halloween each year . It’s the Fortnite community’s chance to celebrate the best of Halloween season, with new skins, fun challenges, and new modes.
Fortnite Fortnitemares 2020 release date: When does it start?
Fortnitemares 2020 doesn’t have a start date yet. In past years, it usually starts within just a few days of Halloween. Last year’s event started on October 29, and we expect somewhat similar start this date for this year too.
Fortnite Fortnitemares 2020: What will happen this Halloween?
We have one or two details that may point us in the right direction. Long-established Fortnite data miner HYPEX found a new animation for the “Ghostly Ghost Henchman” NPC. It is worth pointing out that the model in HYPEX’s animation is just a placeholder, so this new NPC possibly won’t look like that, but it does seem to confirm that AI henchmen characters will play a role in Fortnitemares.

HYPEX has also found that the Midas may be returning as an NPC for Fortnitemares.
Unfinished NPCs most likely for Fortnitemares, thanks to @intercelluar for bringing this to my attention!
Midas (Maybe another version of him):
– Has a Gold Scar, probably a placeholder
– Has 100 HP & 350 Shields
Ghostly Ghost Henchman
– Has an AR, Pump, SMG or Pumpkin Launcher

Thanks to Fortnite leakers Lunakis and CyberDom, we have gotten our first look at the Fortnitemares Battle Bus, and we have to say it looks pretty cool. And also according to the Fortnite leaker iFireMokey, the current battle bus modified by tony stark is set to be active until Oct 21st, and probably it is then we can see this new Halloween themed bus active in the game.
Halloween bus in-game.
This bus might be in-game soon as it was modified in v14.20!

Whatever plan the developers have, we’re eager to see what they can cook up this season, and we’re anxious to get our hands on some new skins.
