Fortnite is taking Fortnitemares 2021 to the next level, hosting Ariana Grande as the greatest monster-hunting Spacefarer in a spacesuit.
Fortnite is bringing back its Fortnitemares Halloween party. For this year’s event, called “The Wrath of the Cube Queen,” the platform will feature Ariana Grande as “the galaxy’s greatest monster hunter.”
The event is now live and will run until 9 am ET on November 2.

It will revolve around the cubes dominating this season’s landscape on Fortnite’s island.
As Epic explains: “Since Fortnitemares began (and even before), the cubes have been mobilizing. Their migration towards the island’s center wasn’t just to spread corruption — they’re now at the center forming the Convergence. So what is the purpose of this mysterious structure?”
Cube wars are not new to Fortnite players, but now the game is accompanying the cube queen with some giant ones called Caretakers. “Tall, foreboding, shadowy apparitions” with spectral tendrils that pull players directly into “The Sideways for a showdown on their home turf.”
The Horde Rush mode is also making a comeback. Again, players can team up to enter and fight quests and scheduled tournaments.
This year, players will encounter a new version of Grande, called the “Spacefarer Ariana Grande,” with a new monster-hunting quest that unlocks free goodies like gliders and pickaxes.
In addition to the witch brooms and the pumpkin rocket launcher seen previously, the Cube Queen brings in a new sinister sideways scythe.
In preparation for the horror celebrations of Halloween, Epic has recently also been adding new games, including The Walking Dead’s Rick Grimes, Frankenstein’s monster, and a skeleton designed by street artist Kaws.
