Fortnite Season 4 is winding to a close, with the final few weeks of challenges getting players close to the goal of 220. Meanwhile, Galactus is making his way towards the Battle Royale island – a journey that has, reportedly, taken him over a year to complete.

You can see Galactus clearly if you look towards the sky in the western portion of the map. We’re only a few weeks from his arrival (at the time of writing) and fans are eagerly awaiting more information regarding what will happen when he lands.

Ahead, we’ll cover everything that we know about the Nexus War – or Galactus – Event before it happens. Make sure to check back as the days and weeks pass, as we’ll be periodically updating this post as we learn more.

Nexus War Event Date

At the time of initially writing this piece, we don’t know exactly when the Nexus or Galactus event will take place. All we know for sure is the scheduled end date of Season 4: November 30.

We’ll update this article when the countdown hits the game. One thing we do know is that the countdown is already in the game files. Data miner, Hypex, gave fans a sneak preview of how it will look.

We have to assumed that Galactus will get closer and bigger before this countdown hits 0.

Nexus War Event Leaks

Event leaks tend to be sporadic in Fortnite, even when we get closer to the event actually happening. Most of the big leakers avoid direct event spoilers, and Epic always want to cover their bases when they can.

According to some recent leaks, however, this event is supposed to be the biggest one in the history of Fortnite – which is a massive bar to clear. If this is the case, then there’s little chance anyone would be able to predict or fully spoil Season 4’s ending.

We have a couple of leaks that may or may not relate to the season-ending event. One of these is the mysterious “Lazing Device” that data miners found in the game files. It’s rumored to be related to Galactus in some way – either used by his minions or used to fight him.

More information is sure to come as the Season 4 event gets closer. We’ll keep this post updated as we learn more, so stay tuned for more leaks, official news, the start date, and more!

Epic Games has announced the Rainbow Royale, an in-game event meant to celebrate the Fortnite LGBTQIA+ community.

Fortnite wants players to know that everyone is welcome aboard the Battle Bus, and as such, it is throwing an in-game celebration for a portion of its community. The event is called Rainbow Royale, and Epic Games invites everyone to see what’s happening in-game and beyond during this celebration.

To start, Epic Games is giving away free cosmetic items that represent the Fortnite LGBTQIA+ community. As well, various LGBTQIA+ musical artists are featured on the in-game radio when driving vehicles. There are also new Creative Mode items that add a splash of color to any player’s build.

Free Cosmetic Items

For the next week, Fortnite’s Item Shop will have six free items that players can claim and gift to friends. These Rainbow Royale cosmetics can be used to support diversity as well as battle in style. Players will have to manually purchase the items, but they are all listed at a price of 0 V-Bucks.

The free Rainbow Royale cosmetics include the Take A ‘Bow emote, Wild Rainbow Wrap, and four sprays. The sprays are colored to represent a wider spectrum of the Fortnite LGBTQIA+ community.

BEATBOX

Fortnite Taco store opening in Los Angeles for a limited time

Epic Games is opening an IRL Fortnite taco store in Los Angeles for a limited time in partnership with LeBron James.

How to stop taco time at greasy grove

A Fortnite taco store is opening in Los Angeles, California for a limited time starting on July 20.

Taking a page out of the Mr. Beast playbook, it seems that Epic Games will be opening its own restaurant. However, it won’t be a lasting part of their brand. Instead, this Fortnite taco store will only be around for a few days before it’s gone forever.

This isn’t the first time that Epic Games has brought its massively popular Battle Royale into the real world. Close to the start of Chapter 1 Season 5, iconic symbols from the game started appearing in the real world. And a week before Chapter 2 Season 7, crop circles and billboards advertised the alien-themed season.

When and where to get Fortnite tacos

LA Eater reported that LeBron James would be hosting a pop-up taco store in partnership with Fortnite. The restaurant would be called El Rey’s Taco Tuesday and will be open from 1 p.m. to 8 p.m. on July 20. It will also be open from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. on July 21, and from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on July 22.

Each day, the Fortnite taco store will move to a different location in Los Angeles. On Tuesday it will be at 8175 Melrose Avenue. On Wednesday it will be in West Hollywood. And on Thursday, the address is listed as 90046.

LA Eater also reports that the event (including food) will be free for all who attend. The pop-up stores will also feature items, decor, and food inspired by Fortnite. Promotional material and footage of one of the restaurants were found online today and can be seen below.

This type of advertisement isn’t something Fortnite has ever done before. Sure, Epic Games has hosted IRL puzzles and has posted real people in the middle of the desert to guard a giant burger statue. But it’s never opened a physical establishment and invited the world to lunch.

Fans are already speculating that attendees will receive codes for free in-game goodies, while others believe that LeBron James will be in attendance. We don’t know for sure what will come of this event, but the grand opening of El Rey’s Taco Tuesday is only a day away.

Regardless, players can participate in the summer festivities to earn free rewards. Similar to Fortnite’s Winter events, new challenges will unlock daily for players to complete. The Summer event is meant to last for two weeks, so Epic Games is stretching out the quests to last just as long. Players will want to complete these challenges to unlock some pretty sweet rewards.
