Fortnite ShortNitemares: Schedule, How to Watch, Free Rewards, Kernel Poppy Release Date, and More

Fortnite recently announced the Shortnightmares as part of the celebration for the Fortnitemares 2021.

Fortnitemares 2021 is currently in full swing and the whole map is covered in Halloween themed props. Every week we are also getting Fortnitemares skins in the item shop via the tarot cards reveal. Also, Fortnite players are currently enjoying the fan favorite LTM Horde Rush game mode which was totally revamped with the Caretaker Boss and Cube Monsters.

But Epic still had ShortNitemares in the bag and only recently released details about this. Shortnitemares is made up of seven horror-themed animated short films that will be shown in Fortnite.

The video below shows the trailer for the upcoming Fortnitemares 2021 ShortNitemares.
