Ghost season has arrived Fortnite. The game’s most recent patch ushered in Fortnitemares, the annual Halloween event, and includes the ability to transform into a werewolf.
As part of the update, a DJ now hangs in the Reality Tree, and players can perform a ritual to access an item called “Howler Claws” that results in the werewolf transformation. (If you’re not playing) Fortnite, I promise that sentence really makes sense.) With the claws equipped, you have a sense ability to find other players, a new melee attack and a double jump. It sounds similar to the Wraith-esque abilities from 2020.
Elsewhere, the update also brings a new Zero Build version of the classic horde rush mode, the return of Halloween-themed items like candy and a pumpkin launcher, and a handful of quests to unlock free in-game items. Fortnitemares runs from now until November 1.
