Fortnite leak has Season 4 end as “Biggest event they’ve ever done”

According to a new Fortnite leak, the Season 4 event will be the “Biggest event they’ve ever done.”

Published

Fortnite Season 4 is nearing a close as fans eagerly await what will happen when Galactus finally makes it to the Fortnite map. Will he destroy the planet? Will Thor send us back to Chapter 1? Only time will tell.

According to a recent leak from data miner iFireMonkey, the answer to “What will happen?” is likely, “None of the above.” We probably won’t see it coming – just as we didn’t see the Device Event coming.

iFireMonkey posted a few quotes from an anonymous source that told him a bit about the conversation that took place between Epic Games’ Donald Mustard and Game Awards’ Geoff Keighley. One of the topics that they discussed was the Season 4 event. Reportedly, Mustard called it “The biggest event we’ve ever done and it will change the future of Fortnite.”

Of course, there are a few other tidbits of information in here, as well, including the “no comment” on the inclusion of Fortnite in the Super Smash Bros universe. Fans of both games have been asking to see Jonesy in Smash for a while.

Later in this tweet thread, iFireMonkey pointed his followers to a year-old tweet from Epic Games CEO, Tim Sweeney. In response to someone asking whether Fortnite was a game or a platform, he said, “Fortnite is a game. But please ask that question again in 12 months.”

Well, we’re almost 12 months away from when that question was asked. According to what Mustard said on a recent Marvel podcast, the Fortnite team had Chapter 2 Season 4 planned over a year ago. Could this even be to what Sweeney was referring?

For now, this leak does little more than get us hyped to see what happens during the Season 4 event. If anything, it throws all of our predictions out the window.

There was no way of predicting that Midas would break the storm at the end of Season 2, sending players into another dimension and revealing that Fortnite is more than likely a simulation. Season 4 may follow suit and bring us an event that’s impossible to predict. We can only hope.

Fortnite Season 4 event promises to be a walk down memory lane

Fortnite leaks and theories suggest that the Season 4 event will bring us back through the history of Fortnite.

Fortnite Season 4 is nearly over, with the upcoming event expected to be the biggest in the game’s history. Fans speculate about what the event will bring to the game, but no one will truly know until it happens on December 1.

That being said, we have some significant clues as to some of what we’ll see during the event, making many fans think that we’ll be getting a trip through time.

Several data miners, especially Mang0e, have mentioned that assets from previous events were added back to the game files in the v14.60 update. So far, we’ve seen files that relate the End event, The Butterfly Event, and The Monster vs. Mech event come back to Fortnite.

Reportedly, this event is ten times as large as The End event was in terms of file size – the first event listed in GB rather than MB. Again, this makes a lot of sense if it will include elements from all of the previous events.

This is only speculation, of course, but it’s based on some irrefutable evidence provided by data miners. Apart from a brief trip through the history of Fortnite events, we have no idea what’s going to happen to the island when Galactus gets here.

Of course, we’ll be covering all of the news ahead of the upcoming season-ending event, along with all of the action we get when the season ends. Make sure to follow us on Twitter for all of the updates @FortniteINTEL.

All signs point to the Black Hole returning ahead of Fortnite Season 5

Fortnite Season 4 will probably end with a bang, leading to downtime before Season 5 – similar to the Black Hole.

Published

The event that will end Fortnite Season 4 is only a week away. Fortnite has confirmed that Galactus will arrive on the island on December 1, likely bringing destruction with him.

Anyone who regularly follows Fortnite news knows that this event is set to be the biggest in history. The files containing the Nexus War event are ten times larger than “The End” event, which was the largest event at its time. It’s also significantly larger than the Travis Scott event, which stunned players when it released.

With this being the case, we can probably all agree that it won’t be business as usual once the event concludes. Galactus will probably achieve his goal of, at least, reaching the Zero Point, and our heroes will escape by the skin of their teeth.

The only problem with this is that the Season 4 event doesn’t lead us directly into Season 5. There’s a reported 36-hour gap between this season and the next one. This happens to be the exact amount of downtime that followed the Black Hole.

Data miners have also begun reporting that the next season may happen quicker than that – that there will be 10 hours between seasons rather than 36. Whichever ends up being the case, we’re in for some downtime and, likely, the end of Chapter 2.

When we say that there’s going to be another Black Hole, we don’t necessarily mean it literally. We may not enter a Black Hole for the second time, but all signs point to something happening and causing Fortnite to go down ahead of the Season 5 release.

We all know how often Fortnite tournaments and competitive events happen. There was a Cash Cup, Marvel tournament, or another way to play competitive Fortnite nearly every day in Season 4. There are no events scheduled between December 1 at 4 PM EST (the time of the event) and December 3 at 4 AM EST (the presumed release time for Season 5).

Data miners are even reporting that the lobby for the end of Season X – the Black Hole lobby – returned to the game files with the most recent update. According to iFireMonkey, the text related to this string said, “To be Continued… In Season 5.” What does that suggest if not some downtime between seasons?

This wasn’t the only past event that was added to the game files. We assume that Fortnite will bring us back through the game’s eras and the biggest events from those times. This lobby change, however, only adds to the evidence of significant downtime between seasons.

As of now, the Fortnite Season 5 release date is still up in the air. Most of the signs we’re seeing point to Season 5 releasing on December 3 at 4 AM EST – 36 hours after the event that will end Season 4.

Fortnite Galactus event: Nexus War start date and time

Nexus War event in Fortnite

The exact date and time for the Nexus War finale in Fortnite has been confirmed, and there is little time to prepare for the Galactus event.

The event, which will bring Chapter 2, Season 4 to a climax, as Galactus – aka the Devourer of Worlds – is bombing towards the map to, presumably, destroy it all.

The countdown to the event appeared in-game on November 21, and Epic have now confirmed the exact date and time when the Nexus War will commence.

“It was only a matter of time.” Epic say in their blog post. “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.”

When is the Galactus event in Fortnite?

The Nexus War finale event will start on December 1 at 1PM PT / 4PM ET / 9PM GMT.

To make sure you don’t miss out, Epic has given some tips to be prepared for the event:

  • DOWNLOAD THE LATEST UPDATE
    If you haven’t already downloaded the 14.60 update, load the game on your preferred device and download today.
  • DOWNLOAD HOUSEPARTY
    Fortnite’s new integration with Houseparty means you can have live video chat in Fortnite (PC, PS4/PS5) while attending the event.
  • GET IN EARLY
    We’ve taken measures to ensure more people can attend the event, but we still recommend everyone log into Fortnite at least 60 minutes prior to the event start. The event playlist is expected to go live 30 minutes prior to the start time.

Of course, even if you can’t play the game yourself at the time, you’ll still be able to catch the action on Twitch and YouTube streams from content creators.

As Epic confirms, this is a one-time-only event, so there won’t be any reruns unlike previous end of season events.
