This coming live event will send shock waves through the Fortnite universe. At least, that’s the sentiment shared by Epic; the company wants as many people as possible to join the fight tomorrow. Given the magnitude of Galactus’ appearance, we’ve compiled the necessary information in our guide below to help you do just that.
How to Watch The Fortnite Galactus Event?
The entire event took place in-game. Hopefully, if you logged-in early enough, you were able to participate. Don’t worry if you didn’t get to, though. While it was a one-time occurrence – as opposed to say, the Travis Scott concert – Stella from IGN was able to capture the entire event live. Check out the full VoD below.
What Is The Fortnite Galactus Event?
The Fortnite Galactus event is a special, one-time-only event where players battle Galactus. It started with players hanging out on a helicarrier as a countdown to the event displayed on the screen. Once the event kicked off, the Marvel supervillain emerged out of the water and made his way towards the island before uttering the words, “Beware, I hunger.” Galactus then attacks the helicarrier, sending players hurtling into the sky where Iron Man shows up with a jetpack and guides players into battle. Things get really interesting when Fortnite turns into a dogfight as players form an army of Battle Buses flying through the air, shooting down drones, and… Well, I won’t ruin all of it here. Check out the full experience in the video embedded above.
At the end of the Galactus event, a countdown to chapter two, season five of Fortnite starts right before the game does down to prep for the update.
