Fortnite just launched its annual Halloween event, Fortnitemares, which will run from today until Nov. 3. 

This time around, Midas, one of the game's most popular characters, is back from the dead and has taken over the military base in the center of the island. But here's where things get interesting for the popular Battle Royale shooter: rather than being sent back to the loading screen after you're eliminated, you become a phantom that can take on remaining survivors with unique abilities.

Outside of the game itself, they also released a variety of free IRL masks to download and print at your leisure ahead of Halloween. You can check those out here.
