Epic Games has revealed this year’s FortniteMares event for Fortnite, which kicks off today. And for Evil Dead fans, Ash Williams will be the latest to make the crossover to Fortnite!
The trailer for the event, which focuses on players being able to turn into werewolves, featured a brief shot of Ash. Noted Fornite leakers such as HypeX have delved further into the update, which confirmed that Ash will be in the game, along with several Evil Dead-related cosmetics.
Ash will be bringing the following into Fortnite:
- His iconic chainsaw, which doubles as a Pickaxe
- A holstered shotgun as Back Bling
- An Evil Dead-themed Loading Screen
It’s not clear yet if Ash will have his own set of emotes, or if we’ll be graced with iconic lines by Bruce Campbell. The exact release date for the Evil Dead Ash outfit to be released in Fortnite is also not known at this time.
Meanwhile, Fortnitemares 2022 will feature the usual Halloween-themed skins, along with a new Halloween boss. There will be a new weapon that features “Phantom Ammo”. Players will also be able to snag the new Howler Claws, which when equipped, allows you to activate a “Wolfscent Ability” to track nearby enemies. The nearby enemies will hear a heartbeat that grows louder as you approach them.
The Fortnitemares 2022 event is expected to last until the end of October.
Meanwhile, for you Evil Dead: The Game fans, as part of the upcoming Hail to the King update, the Blacksmith from Army of Darkness will be arriving in the game very soon.
