The release date for Fortnite's upcoming Fortnitemares event has finally been revealed. A notification has appeared on PlayStation 4 to confirm it'll begin on Wednesday, October 24 and run until Monday, November 26.

We don't currently have much information regarding the event, but it looks like we should expect a new set of challenges for free rewards, similar to the Birthday celebrations:
