Get ready to be spooked on Fortnite. Epic Games has just announced the return of the “Fortnitemares” event for a 2021 edition. As part of this annual Halloween celebration, the game will also be running the third edition of its animated short film festival.

Traditionally called the “Short Nite Film Festival,” this particular edition takes a more sinister turn, as it’s renamed “Shortnitemares” and will focus on animated shorts worthy of the most bloodcurdling horror movies.

For this special edition, players will be able to enjoy all the content in a virtual movie theater created by Quantum Builds, where Epic Games explains, “each short’ll have its own theater room.” Users will be able to choose the order in which to watch the different short films.

As yet, Epic Games has not revealed an exact launch date for “Shortnitemares,” but more details are expected as the event approaches. Indeed, it should logically take place towards the end of October. The festival program has not yet been shared either.

FEATURED STORIES

In addition to the film festival event, Fortnite plans to celebrate Halloween with its users with themed maps, games and experiences, specially developed by the community. Various characters, such as Frankenstein’s monster and the Mummy, may also appear in the game throughout October.

A new weapon, new quests and a limited game mode will be revealed soon, Epic Games said. JB
