Fortnite said in a tweet: "#Fortnitemares is back! Shadow Midas has taken over The Authority with his reawakened Henchmen. Stop him before you turn into a Shadow yourself."

With a host of spooky Henchmen, Shadow Midas returns to The Authority and players need to eliminate him. Even after elimination, players can still return to the match as a Shadow. They can still possess cars and tackle enemies with their new ghostly form until they win the Nitemare Royale.
