“Fortnitemares” has come to an end, and it left the world of Fortnite dramatically altered. This afternoon the battle royale game was home to a live, one-time-only in-game event, which marked the end of the monster-filled Halloween mode and introduced a number of changes to the game. More than 1 million people watched the event happening in real-time on Twitch alone.
It all started when the game’s mysterious, purple cube disappeared. First, it starting melting, dripping something into the lake it hovered over. Then the cube began pulsating and spinning rapidly, before it eventually disappeared — and pulled players into a strange, brightly-lit realm. There, you couldn’t do much but float and watch a strange butterfly fluttering about.
