Epic recently added the Storm King to Fortnite, a beast that will be available for battle royale players to fight over the next few days.
The company kicked off its “Fortnitemares” yesterday, a Halloween-themed event that comes with challenges alongside a new Limited Time Mode called ‘The Storm King.’ Complaints from players have prompted Epic to nerf the boss.
The Storm King LTM is a temporary game mode in which a large group of players must work together to defeat the Storm King and his minions.
Victory rewards players with a special new umbrella featuring purple and crackling electricity…but that’s only if you manage to win.
It’s clear that Epic intended Storm King to be difficult to beat — it previously teased the boss as the hardest opponent battle royale players will have ever faced.
Some players say the company took it too far, though, making the mode more frustrating than fun.
