'Fortnite' Ghoul Trooper Skin Teased for Return in Fortnitemares 2018

Fortnite fans may be able to get their hands on the Ghoul Trooper skin in the coming days if a recent tweet from the game's official Twitter account is any indication. It looks like the formally limited skin may be making its return during Fortnitemares.

The tweet, posted Saturday morning, reads as follows: "Costumes are dancing, partner up wise. They could be friendly, or a ghoul in disguise." Alongside the rhyming verse is an obscured picture of the Ghoul Trooper and the Fortnitemares hashtag. The Ghoul Trooper was available as a holiday purchase from the Item Shop in October and November of last year, so it makes sense for the spooky skin to return as we inch toward its one-year anniversary.

This is especially true considering the Skull Trooper worked its way back into the Item Shop rotation earlier this month with a new color and associated Challenges. The Ghoul Trooper seems likely to do so in similar fashion.

If this tease does indeed foreshadow the arrival of the Ghoul Trooper, we have to imagine its release date is fairly soon. A new Fortnite update is expected to arrive early next week, so the Item Shop could theoretically refresh shortly after that patch goes live.

We'll provide more news on the Ghoul Trooper's return to Fortnite as it becomes available.
