The wave of 'Cube Monsters,' not-zombies in Fortnite are apparently messing up peoples' games to the point that Epic has cut back on the amount you'll encounter during its Fortnite 'Fortnitemare' event.
Epic announced that while the initial wave of Cube Monsters remains unchanged their dynamic spawns will be reduced throughout the mid and end-game portions. This will ultimately reduce the amount of Cube Monsters you'll encounter over the course of the whole game.
Epic has a breakdown of spawns on Reddit showing that phase one begins with 85 monsters, with phase two spawning 25 (down from 40), and phase three spawning 15 (down from 30). By the ninth phase the spawns drop from five to three.
"Amazing. Great Adjustment. Hopefully this will improve the late game. Thanks for listening to feedback and adjusting quick," one Redditor commented in the thread reacting to the news.
It's not just the public game that's going to change. Epic announced that for this weekend's Fortnite tournament at Twitchcon monster spawns will be removed for the esport event, though Epic stresses that it considers dynamic events like Cube Monsters a skill to master in Fortnite's esports scene.
Fortnite is celebrating a Halloween event called Fortnitemare right now and released several Halloween-themed cosmetics and changes which you can check out here.
