Fortnitemares 2023 has begun, brining back a number of beloved spooky season treats including Candy, the Pumpkin Launcher, and the Witch Broom. But, as part of this year's event, some new themed skins are making their way to Fortnite. One such skin is Halloween's Michael Myers.
The iconic horror-movie antagonist will be recreated in Fortnite form, along side a number of additional cosmetics as part of the"The Shape” Set items. Michael Myers won't be the only popular character getting the Fortnite treatment this season. Both Jack Skellington and Alan Wake will also be available as Outfits. But, if you've logged into Fortnite since the Fortnitemares update, you may have noticed that Michael Myers isn't available in the Item Shop just yet. So, when will he arrive?
Michael Myers Fortnite Release Date
As part of the Fortnitemares 2023 patch notes, Epic Games has confirmed that Michael Myers will be arriving in a Fortnite later on in the Fortnitemares event. Fortnitemares 2023 will run until November 3 at 2AM ET, so expect the skin to be available before then.
As for an exact release date, Epic Games has yet to confirm one. However, known leakers @ShiinaBR, @SpushFNBR, and @notpaloleaks claim that the skin is set to arrive in the Item Shop on October 24, at 8 PM ET.

Aside from the Michael Myers Outfit, players will also be able to grab 'The Shape' Set bundle which includes:
- 'Live From Haddonfield' Emote (plays the Halloween movie theme)
- Knife Pickaxe
- Jack-o-Lantern Back Bling
At the time of writing, it's unclear how much the Michael Myers Outfit and Set bundle will cost. However, it will likely be similar to the price of previous pop culture collaborations. Players should expect the skin to cost around 1,200 V-Bucks.
