'Fortnite' Closes Out Fortnitemares 2021 Event With Spooky Short Films

by Rainier on Oct. 26, 2021 @ 2:27 p.m. PDT

Fortnite is an expansive original world that invites players to be creative, resourceful and collaborative, combining building skills and destructible environments with intense PvP combat.

In Fortnite, players and their friends lead a group of Heroes to reclaim and rebuild a homeland that has been left empty by a mysterious darkness only known as “the Storm.”

Players will band together online to explore the world for resources, build extravagant forts, find or build insane weapons and traps as they protect their towns from the strange monsters that emerge during the Storm.

Fortnite Battle Royale is the FREE 100-player PvP mode in Fortnite. One giant map. A battle bus.

The last one standing wins.

The third installment of Fortnite’s hit film festival, Short Nite, is back and bringing scares. From October 28 at 6 PM ET until November 1 at 6 PM ET, Shortnitemares will be screening seven spooktacular animated short films in the all-new Shortnitemares Theater, built by Quantum Builds in Fortnite Creative

This stacked lineup features two world premieres: The Eye, produced by Aaron Sims Creative with support from Epic Games, and We Will Be Monsters, produced by Universal Pictures in partnership with Epic Games. Utilizing Epic’s Unreal Engine 5 (Early Access) and MetaHuman Creator, The Eye follows an intergalactic maintenance worker called to repair a drone on a strange planet, where she encounters a hostile force that won’t let her leave. We Will Be Monsters, created with Unreal Engine and MetaHuman Creator, is the debut of an all-new mini-series featuring Universal’s The Bride of Frankenstein in a globe-trotting quest to rescue her fellow Monsters from their ill-fated destinies.

The Shortnitemares Theater features a hauntingly decorated festival room, where all seven films will be running continuously for the duration of the Shortnitemares event. Additionally, each of the seven films will have its own uniquely themed virtual room, so players and their friends can choose specific shorts to watch together.

Want to watch while getting a Victory Royale? No problem. Picture-in-Picture will be available again, accessible through the settings. 

Watch Shortnitemares for 30 minutes in the Shortnitemares Theater and receive the Spray Matter Spray!
