Fortnite Gets Spooky with Fortnitemares Update

Fortnite's new mode Vlad Moon Rising Fortnite Gets Spooky with Fortnitemares Update
Melba Vasquez | 28 October, 2017, 18:41

The latest Fortnite patch not only adds a Halloween theme to the entire game, but also adds leaderboards, seasons and customization to the game's "Battle Royale" mode. We're talking about really getting into the ghoul spirit with new skins and enemies. A new region called Hexsylvania has also been added, offering players exclusive Halloween inspired rewards along with a new game mode called Vlad Moon Rising. "This portion of "Save the World" will offer new zombies to eliminate, new weapons to eliminate with, and new rewards". With new features like seasons and leaderboards finally added to the game, the number is likely to continue to rise. Thus, you'll have the burden of proof when you perform terribly, or that permanent record of your awesome skills. Seasons will give the player a chance to level-up their character and earn unique seasonal rewards and banner flair. A few weapons have also gotten a new look for the holiday as well including the Jack-O-Launcher and the Grave Digger assault rifle.

Fans can now adjust banners, the harvest tool (pickaxe etc.), character or glider, as well as choose the way they load in.

Introducing "Slurp Juice", a regeneration potion that grants 1 health and 1 shield per second for 25 seconds. Here you can change your banner, and pick exactly which cosmetics to show off.

Sadly, all player settings have been reset, and Epic Games have said they are working on improving this problem going forward.

Console users will see the most benefit from this update as the patch refined the controls and made every aspect of the game feel much more fluid and less clunky.

Another notable change is the addition of the in-game voice chat functionality for Xbox One and PlayStation 4.

New graphics are visible to players who are caught outside the Storm safe zone, and the storm wall visuals have been updated. The developer also added Halloween skins on sale in the game's store. These can be found in the same locations as other consumables and you can stack up to two of them.

PlayStation 4 and Xbox One player's mics are voice activated by default. This #Game Mode drops 100 players onto an island with a last man standing approach, and the genre has seen some great exposure over the past year with the release of "Player Unkown's Battlegrounds". You can read the full patch notes here.
