According to the in-game countdown timer and official social media promotion from Epic Games, Fortnite‘s Season 4 live event is set to take place December 1 at 4 p.m. EST.
That being said, Epic has offered a few pointers to make sure as many people as possible are able to watch the festivities. It’s recommended that fans log in to Fortnite around 3 p.m. EST on December 1 and wait for “The Devourer of Worlds” lobby to go live around 3:30 p.m. EST. Once you’re in a lobby, pick your spot and wait for the action to begin. If it’s anything like the Doomsday Event that took place in June, you can set up pretty much anywhere to have a good view. While Epic has taken steps to allow more folks to watch the event at its scheduled time, we suggest following this advice.
What do we know about Fortnite‘s Galactus event?
While substantial leaks about precisely what will happen during the Galactus event have been v buck generator pretty light, those keeping track of the lore probably have a solid idea of the story surrounding it. While working with Thor to destroy a threat called the Black Winter, Galactus is distracted by the Zero Point energy source buried underneath the Fortnite island. He zooms toward the planet in hopes of consuming its power.
Knowing the immense danger the world of Fortnite is about to face, Thor comes to the Island to warn its inhabitants. Not only is he able to do so, but he’s also brought several of his superhero buddies along with him including Grut, Wolverine, Storm, Iron Man and every other Marvel-themed skin fans have been able to unlock or purchase. It’s that last name on the list that could wind up being the most important, as Mr. Stark has quietly been adding new features to the Battle Bus with each new update this season. Those who’ve been keeping a close eye on things might have noticed the transformation.
Based on this knowledge, it’s believed by many theorists that our heroes will line up on the Helicarrier to fight Galactus and will initially fail in their efforts. In fact, leaks suggest Galactus will be the absolute largest character we’ve seen yet, covering a huge chunk of the sky. As a result, the ship will crash to the ground, and it might even become its own point of interest at the start of Season 5. However, just when it seems like all hope is lost, we think it will be Tony Stark and his augmented Battle Bus that ultimately save the day.
Unfortunately, this victory won’t be without its drawbacks. In trying to destroy Galactus, Iron Man will cause irreparable damage to the Island, which will prompt the return of the infamous Black Hole loading screen that kicked off Chapter 2 (or something similar to it). Only this time there will be a little added context with the cliffhanger “to be continued…in Season 5.” It’s at this point the server downtime for Season 5 will commence. There are likely lots of specifics and surprises still left to see, but this is our best guess for what will happen based on the evidence available in the days before the event.
