What Will Happen In The Galactus Event?
Here we don’t have any exact details but we can expect a few things.
One thing we do know is that players will not be able to build or use guns.
Based on details about the Helicarrier POI moving onto the map, this could become some kind of viewing platform for players to watch the event.
When loading into the event, players will see this screen.
After the Galactus event, there will be a 2-3 day black hole heading into season 5. As you can imagine, Galactus defeats Marvel.
A Redditor posted this video of what happens when loading into Fortnite after the Galactus event
It confirms that what we know will essentially be deleted and also confirms that the game will return on the 3rd December.
Once this time has ended, we will be getting a remixed map of Chapter 1 and Tilted Towers will return!
Supposedly, they are using the same assets from the Travis Scott live event.
He also mentions the fact that we will have to rebuild the old map from v15.10, due to the fact that it was destroyed from 'The End' event.
We will also get a new 'Acid Rain' feature that damages you.
Here's what the Season 5 picture will look like
A Galactus skin has been rumoured for a while and despite the fact we have no idea if it will appear, we can only hope the live event brings more clarity on it.
Expect the skin to launch for around 1500 V-Bucks, around £10.
