Fortnite is facing one of Marvel’s biggest villains as Galactus emerges as part of the latest crossover event in the battle royale game. Galactic enemies arrive in early December, marking the end of the season.
One of Marvel Cannon’s biggest and most terrifying planet-eating adversaries will land on the Fortnite map at 13:00 PST / 16:00 EST / 21:00 GMT on December 1st. His arrival will be a cataclysmic event that concludes Chapter 2, Season 4, and prepares everything for the next season.
Players are advised to start logging in at least an hour in advance. The playlist will start 30 minutes before its official start. These events tend to get crowded quickly, and Epic’s servers usually fill up before they actually start, so be careful if you need front row seats. Galactus is expected to do basically the same thing as last year’s black hole, wipe out the islands to transform all the environment, and wipe out all the slate that Epic planned for Season 5. It can be slightly smaller. In any case, the situation is not the same after the arrival of the cosmic entity, like the flood in Season 2.
Donald Mustard, Fortnite’s worldwide creative director, spoke in October of this week’s Marvel podcast, saying he plans for “years of Marvel integration” at Fortnite. “This isn’t the end, it’s the beginning. I thought of a really good POV style character that could set this up. [earlier this year] It was a deadpool, a kind of destruction of the fourth wall. And the July caps were piled up until this moment, “he said, explaining that it was the black holes that drew enormous power to the island. “There was this moment at Fortnite. We reorganized all the issues around the island and created this new island. That was the moment that attracted Galactus.”
If you are unfamiliar, Galactus is a giant galactic entity that eats planets to energize and nourish him. He is one of Marvel’s canons’ greatest villains and presents an existential threat each time he is involved. He usually appears in comics as it is happening here as part of a shake-up to the status quo.
Fornite Chapter 2 Season 4 is called Nexus War and brings many Marvel characters and references. Black Panther, Doctor Doom, Daredevil, Thor were included as skins and Easter eggs, and there was also a cartoon line. Galactus arrives and ruins everyone’s day on December 1st.
