Fortnite: Battle Royale – Shortnitemares Showings And Guide

Short Nite 1 and the sequel Short Nite 2 were hugely successful and featured a bunch of underrated yet talented animators, and it seems like Epic is coming back with Shortnitemares, themed around spooky short films. Same song and dance as the two previous events: Animated shorts released in the aesthetic of a film festival. This event will take place in a player-built theater made in Creative mode, which shorts running from October 28 to November 1.

While we don’t have a full list of all 7 shorts yet, we have some important details:

  1. The new Kernel Poppy outfit, Slurpy Slush’em back bling and Butter Buddy emote will be available in the Item Shop the day before Shortnitemares, on October 27.
  2. You can watch the shorts in any language you like, complete with subtitles.
  3. Recording is not allowed, just like in a real film festival. We don’t know the consequence of uploading footage onto YouTube or Vimeo, but it will most likely end in a fine of some sort, which is why we won’t upload anything related to the event.
  4. Watch the shorts for 30 minutes and you will receive the Spray Matter spray.
