Ali-A explains potential Fortnite Chapter 2 storyline twist

Epic Games could be on the brink of doing something unprecedented in Fortnite Battle Royale for Halloween, if YouTuber Alastair ‘Ali-A’ Aiken is proven to be correct.

The popular internet personality, who many people will know for his popular Pokemon Go, Call of Duty and Fortnite video series of videos online, posted some interesting information that any battle royale fan will no doubt be interested in. 

Ali-A recently revealed a handy trick on how to count the amount of bots in Fortnite Chapter 2 matches and now it appears that he might well have uncovered a huge clue for an upcoming event. 

Epic GamesThere’s a mystery bunker here on the Fortnite Chapter 2 map.

The 25-year-old posted a video to his official YouTube channel on October 26, after noticing that a huge mysterious door had been added along with the brand new map, without any real explanation behind its existence. 

Ali-A, however, has seen something very similar to this door before and it was in Save the World mode, which is separate from Fortnite Battle Royale and has to be purchased to play. 

With Epic Games previously hinting that the game could also be free-to-play in the near future, this door could be a way of making that crossover happen – maybe even as part of this year’s Fortnitemares Halloween event.

“For a long, long time now Fortnite have said that Save the World will be going free-to-play,” he said during the video. 

Ali-A continued: “I believe the biggest reason it hasn’t happened yet is because they are still waiting to tie in the stories together so when finally the Save the World story and Battle Royale story link in, make sense, and has an actual connection in the storyline, that is when they will open it up to the masses to play for free because people will understand it a little bit better and will have a reason to jump over and play that portion of the game.” 

Epic GamesZombies were last seen in Fortnite Season 10 at Retail Row.

While this is just a theory at the time of writing and nothing has been confirmed, let alone even mentioned, by Epic Games about this potential crossover coming soon, the pieces of the puzzle are certainly there for all to see. 

Whether or not the modes will be coming together as he suggests during the video remains to be seen, but elements of the Save the World have already appeared in Battle Royale previously, as zombies have been seen to take over different locations in the past. 

It might not be the most unlikely possibility that we see something come out of this massive door at some stage in Chapter 2, Season 1.

Just days ahead of Fortnite’s Galactus live event on December 1, data-miners have leaked a highly anticipated Galactus skin without spoiling event details. 

Galactus, the “Devourer of Worlds,” has been approaching Fortnite’s island and his unavoidable arrival is finally nigh. In a one-time-only, live Season 4 “Nexus War” finale on December 1, Marvel’s world-eater and Epic Games’ player base will collide. 

While fans currently know that the gigantic, cosmic entity is making his way to the Island and that something will be happening on the aforementioned date at 4 p.m. ET, few details are available.

Fortunately for impatient aficionados of the battle royale, dataminers have leaked a Galactus skin that should be coming to the game’s shop with a bundle at some point.

The Galactus skin doesn’t seem massive, but it’s definitely spooky.

While it’s unclear exactly how similar this skin will be to the teased images of a gargantuan, shadowy Galactus shared by Epic themselves, the skin most certainly presents an imposing figure. 

Dressed in glistening jet black and red, the skin features regal, villainous armor bookended by chunky boots and a massive helmet. Eagle-eyed fans might even notice a particularly smug smile sitting across the infamous villain’s purple face.

It remains uncertain if this skin will be available for purchase and, if so, when it will be. But leakers like ‘ximton’ have discovered files indicating it could be part of a bundle. Still, in order to save fans from leaks, dataminers have remained largely quiet about specific event details.

Fortnite Galactus event – what we know so far

A variety of leaks have already surfaced, showing a gigantic Galactus and teasing the possibilities of a major battle between Marvel’s heroes and the cosmic world-eater. But Epic Games have tried to keep things on the low, only confirming that “the fate of all Reality lies in the balance.”

As mentioned earlier, the finale event begins on Tuesday, December 1 at 4 p.m. ET (1 p.m. PT, 9 p.m. GMT) and its exact duration is unknown. Epic have advised players to download the latest update (14.60) and Houseparty (which is integrated with Fortnite to allow for live video chat).
