Fortnite wants you to show off your creativity for Halloween!

It’s Halloween! Wait, no, it’s still only August. …It’s almost Halloween! That’s right folks, finally, someone besides yours truly stars prepping for Halloween in August. No, it’s not your weird neighbor (unless I’m that weird neighbor…). No, this time we’re talking about Fortnite.

Fortnite is already prepping for Halloween now that No Sweat Summer is over. With the Fortnite staff back in the offices, they’re getting ready for the next patch update later this week, on top of the next season, which is coming in September.

Not only that, but fans will now be able to get hyped for Halloween, as the folks over at Epic Games’ biggest cash cow want you to create your own island for fans to check out.

Here’s the catch, there is no submission date yet, nor is there a cut-off date yet. They want you to follow the @FNCreate Twitter account for updates on when to submit.

What are the guidelines for the Halloween-themed islands?

"Island Design GuidelinesMany new players arrive each year  for Fortnitemares. Help lure them to your islands by making sure your island is clear and understandable for new players to really sink their fangs into!Old scares just don’t scare like they used to, so be sure to make use of the new devices and mechanics added in 2022. Deliver jumpy haunted houses with the Prop Manipulator, create terrifying caves with the Level Instance device, and encourage your visitors to spring, slide, and mantle over obstacles to get away from all the scary monsters and other creative creatures you can come up with.Be creative with Eliminations. Have your players fall victim to zombies, get lost in a maze during a storm, and meet their demise in other creative ways. Games don’t have to be about eliminations, but bring that tension and drama to your island!Bring the scary energy to your island however you can, but feel free to bring your own spin on Fortnitemares! Zombie Dance Party, Haunted Houses, and Creepy Corn Mazes are always fun, but evolve and remix them for your personal vision of a Fortnitemare! Be unique with your content, and design for the best chance to be featured!Callout CriteriaOnly one island per creator will be accepted.Make sure your island is on theme.Make sure your island follows the specified Fortnitemares theme.We’re looking for high-quality experiences.Fully functional islands that use devices well, set effective boundaries, and are highly polished make for a better player experience. (And they make your island more likely to be featured!)Prioritize innovation (must use newer devices).Boundary-pushing and never-before-seen designs will certainly grab our attention.Each submission requires a video overview.Submission videos must show a fly-through of the entire island as well as one round of gameplay.Submissions must be new islands.Any island considered for featuring must be a brand new island published during the callout period.Promotional trailers are encouraged.Including a captivating promotional trailer for your island is not required but highly encouraged.
