The countdown to Fortnite Chapter 2’s first event of the season – Fortnitemares – is underway, with a patch inbound to release all that juicy content.

Epic Games has been continuing with their regular updates for the popular battle royale title even after the shift from the game just being called Fortnite to Fortnite Chapter 2.

We’ve already had the start of the new chapter patch, as well as a small bug fixing update for October 22 but now Fortnitemares is almost here, so we should be in for some spooky changes. So, let’s take a look at the early patch notes, before Epic Games lay the full list of new content upon us once downtime has finished.

Fortnitemares

Undoubtedly the biggest and best part of the new update will be the addition of the Fortnitemares. Last year, we saw Epic Games release the Cube Fiends and the Pumpkin Launcher as a part of the holiday celebration – as well as plenty of new cosmetics.

Now, we should probably expect similar this time around, too, considering they usually go all out on their holiday-themed events. What content we’ll get exactly is unknown as of right now, but a few spooky spider traps or a new ghost-themed weapon wouldn’t go amiss.

Bug Fixes

Although Fortnite Chapter 2 has been pretty successful already, there are still bugs that remain. Epic addressed some FPS problems in the last patch, but issues do remain – just check out the lighthouse at times.

Challenges, too, had been updated to reward players with 52,000 XP for completing a mission pack, but some reported that it was still showing as 14,000 XP. According to the game’s Trello board, hat has been fixed alongside a number of quality of life things that should make your game run and feel a little smoother.

Below, you can find Fortnite v11.10 update patch notes for the bug fixes. Once everything else appears, including Fortnitemares content, we’ll be sure to update the notes!
