HYPEX reveals developer’s plans for Fortnite during Halloween

Celebrated dataminer HYPEX recently disclosed some of the plans for the upcoming scary festival. The scalper revealed that the game will bring back the Horde Rush LTM for Halloween, much to the delight of fans. The four player co-op mode brings the flair of Call of Duty Zombies with the added touch of Fortnite elements. In this LTM, players will fight hordes of zombies until they beat the mode’s ultimate boss.

Other than that, HYPEX also mentioned that the mode will return with items like Obelisks Chests, which will have powerful weapons. Additionally, it will also have score multipliers and items that will turn a player invisible as well. So it seems like fans can turn on the spookiness as well while killing hordes of zombies in The Horde Rush.

Zombies to have abilities as well

Other than that, HYPEX also disclosed some of the changes to the zombies in Fortnite as well. The post mentioned that zombies of different colors will have unique abilities. While the white one freezes enemies, the red variants will explode near players. Along with that, the Green zombies leave poison clouds with the gold version being very strong while hitting. This should create a lot of variety in gameplay for players, which will cause them to strategize their plans for the hordes.
