Fortnightmares is back with a bang in 2020 with the Midas Shadow Challenge. The event will be introducing a handful of different challenges, skins and one returning fan-favourite charcter.
The event will run from 21st October till November 3. The Fortnightmares’ event will be live on all platforms and the event is coming for last three consecutive years. The event sees a spooky takeover of the battle royale island. In this, slain players return as a Shadow to kill players that remain alive. As a Shadow, you can even possess vehicles, and use other worldly abilities to defeat the remaining players.
Shadow Midas Challenge 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.
From the realm of Shadows comes more than just the regenerated. As you roam the Island, pick up the Pumpkin Rocket Launcher, fight foes with the Fiend Hunter Crossbow, ride on a Witch Broom, and employ a new invention by Midas. The Shadows were even kind enough to bring candy as well.
