The latest update for Epic Games’ Fortress Heroes battle royale game adds a host of Halloween-themed costumes, including an eye-catching Alan Wake skin.
Epic said in a blog post that Remedy’s Alan Wake 2 will star in Remedy’s Alan Wake 2 later in October, and he will be available in the Fortnite item shop during the Fortnitemares 2023 event. .
The image below shows the Alan Wake outfit, as well as more of the Waking the Nightmare set items in the store.
Epic also released a trailer for the event, showing off Alan Wake gameplay. We got John Wick vibes from it!
Meanwhile, Disney’s Jack Skellington, the Pumpkin King from Tim Burton’s 1993 film “The Nightmare Before Christmas,” is also about to get a costume. This includes the Santa Jack alternative style.
In addition to Zero’s back charm, Mint Parasol Pickaxe, and Jack’s Sleigh Glider, there are two accompanying Jack’s skull emotes. Jack’s scary facial expression is built into the costume, along with the universal lock, shake, and barrel bath expressions.
Finally, Michael Myers from the Halloween movie has his own costume.
Elsewhere, Epic said it no longer supports OS 9 on Android devices. Starting from v28.00, players will need to use OS10 or higher to continue to play “Fortnite” natively on Android in an officially supported manner. Android OS 9 will no longer be officially supported in Fortnite, which means Epic will no longer proactively ensure its compatibility with Fortnite, and “the quality of service may degrade over time and eventually become unplayable.”
Epic recommends Xbox Cloud Gaming, Nvidia GeForce Now, and Amazon Luna as alternatives for users unable to upgrade to OS10. Currently, these services actively support OS9 Android devices, so you can continue to stream Fortress Heroes.
Epic Games fired 830 employees earlier this month, shocking the video game industry, with CEO Tim Sweeney at the forefront of Epic’s pursuit of a metaverse and costly legal battles. Sweeney acknowledged that Fortnite’s growth is currently “primarily driven by creator content with significant revenue sharing, compared to when Fortnite: Battle Royale took off and started funding our expansion. The profit margins of this business are low”. Sweeney said third-party games now have more time than first-party ones.
Fortnitemares 2023 will last until November 3, 2023 at 2am ET / 7am UK.
