As per the notable Fortnite leaker HYPEX, this year’s Fortnitemares can be a bit different. The leaker states that Epic will add some new gameplay mechanics with the upcoming event. Some in-game files hint at the same. You can check out HYPEX’s tweet below.

Another major theory going around is that this year’s Fortnitemares will happen in the center of the map, just like the previous ones. While Epic has not confirmed the location, it’s still highly likely. Leakers have even pointed out that all the cubes will be heading towards the center of the Fortnite map. So the event taking place at this location won’t come as a surprise.

Players can even expect an updated version of the Horde Rush LTM, which might feature different kinds of zombies, abilities, and features. There even might be some items that will make players invisible to the zombies.
