Fortnitemares 2022 also includes the new Zero Build Horde Rush mode, sending players into battle against the deadly Cube Monsters. However, as its name suggests, this mode removes the ability to build structures to protect against the creatures.

This round-based mode throws waves of enemies at you and your teammates, with opportunities to earn high scores and multipliers. Epic Games challenges players to “take down the Final Boss without the aid of building,” which will surely change the way you approach each wave.

Zero Build Horde Rush mode lasts until November 15, giving players two additional weeks to enjoy it after Fortnitemares ends.

Fortnitemares 2022 is available in Fortnite right now.
