Galactus descends, Marvel’s super-villain arrives on the battlefield royale as part of the final one-off Nexus War event on Tuesday, December 1st at 4 PM ET – 9 PM UK time. Epic has suggested that players log into Fortnite at least an hour before the event begins to ensure they get access to watching it. The event launch list is expected to be published half an hour before the start time.
Galactus descends arrival marks the end of the second chapter of Season 4, so what can players expect? Fans expect Galactus to destroy the current map and make some pauses, similar to last year’s black hole event. Season five then begins, with a dramatically changed map.
Will Fortnite’s Love With Marvel Ever End? In October, Fortnite President Donald Mustard discussed his plans for the next few years of the game’s story, which will continue to be incorporated into elements of the Marvel universe.
“The reason we called it Nexus War this season is because this is just the beginning of many of the things that we have planned for many years of Marvel integration,” Mustard said on this official Marvel podcast.
“This isn’t the end, this is the beginning. We thought a really good POV-style character who could make up this [earlier this year] is Deadpool, kind of breaking the fourth wall. Then Cap in July, this moment …”
According to Mustard, a black hole event last year triggered the arrival of Galactus.
“We had this moment in Fortnite that happened about a year ago where … Zero Point reorganized everything around the island and kind of created this new island,” said Mustard.
This is the moment that attracted Galactus. [He] felt realignment and was like, ‘Huh, there’s this energy source at the center of everything, and if I can consume that, I can’t just consume Marvel reality but it can consume everything.
