The climax of Fortnite Nexus War is finally arriving! Galactus is closer to the island than ever before, and Epic Games has finally announced his arrival date. An event preview that starts with “Uhhh… is that the Devourer of Worlds on the horizon? That’s not good!”, might just sweep fans off of their feet.
The event will happen in-game on December 1 at 4PM Eastern Time. Just as Epic describes, “It was only a matter of time. Galactus is closing in on the Island and the fate of all Reality lies in the balance. Join the ultimate fight against Galactus in the one-time only Nexus War finale event on Tuesday.”
The Nexus War season has been one of the longest Fortnite seasons yet. It featured the Marvel crossover with tons of fan-favorite superheroes. Naturally, both Fortnite and Marvel fans would love to see these superheroes fight Galactus in what might go down as the most epic battle in gaming history.
To experience the event live in-game players will need the latest version of the game. Therefore, they need to ensure they have version 14.60 before the event begins.
Adding to the experience, Epic has also introduced an integration with Houseparty, the group video chat app. Players attending the event live on PC, PS4 and PS5 can do so with a group of friends within the game itself. They can watch the event with friends just like watching a movie in the theatre.
Epic wants as many people to attend the event as possible. Therefore, they have advised players to log into the game about an hour early, as the event playlist will go live 30 minutes prior to the event.
To witness the event, various content creators who made a name for themselves through Fortnite before switching to other games have been coming back. The likes of Nickmercs, Tfue, TimTheTatman, and Cloakzy will be streaming the event live on their channels. Epic has also put in a word of caution for these streamers.
Let us know how excited you are to watch the Marvel Avengers take on the Devourer of Worlds just a few days from now!
