Galactus To Invade FORTNITE Next Month In Nexus War Finale But Marvel Tie-Ins Will Continue For Years

Fortnite's Nexus War will come to an end next month when Galactus arrives for a special one-time only event in the battle royale game. Players will be able to battle the Devourer of Worlds on December 1.

Fortnite's Nexus War will conclude next month with the arrival of Galactus and a one-time only event in which players will square off against the Marvel supervillain.

"It was only a matter of time. Galactus is closing in on the Island and the fate of all Reality lies in the balance," Epic teased of the final showdown with the Devourer of Worlds.

The massive battle with Galactus will take place on December 1 at 4:00 p.m. ET, bringing the Nexus War to a close. Fortnite's latest season went all-in on the Marvel theme featuring character skins for Iron Man, Thor, Storm, Doctor Doom, She-Hulk, Mystique, Groot, and Wolverine. While Epic and Marvel have teamed up in the past to host in-game events that celebrate the MCU film releases, this season was the biggest collaboration yet.

Although the Nexus War is coming to an end, the working collaborative relationship between Epic Games and Marvel will continue. According to Fortnite creative director Donald Mustard, there are still years worth of Marvel integration planned for the game.

"The reason we called this season Nexus War is that this is just the start of lots of stuff we have planned for many years of Marvel integration," Mustard said on the official This Week in Marvel podcast last month. "This is not the end, this is the beginning."

Mustard went on to explain that Galactus' arrival in Fortnite was sparked by last year's black hole event.

"We had this moment in Fortnite which happened around a year ago where... the Zero Point reorganised all the matter around the island and kind of created this new island. That's the moment that attracted Galactus. [He] felt this re-organising of reality and was like 'huh, there's this energy source at the centre of everything and if I can consume that, I can consume not just the Marvel reality but I can consume everything.'"

Fans who want to check out the Galactus event live are encouraged to arrive at least 60 minutes prior to its start. The event playlist will go live 30 minutes before the event begins.
