Epic Games appear to be building towards the arrival of a Chinese New Year event in Fortnite Chapter 2, with new skins and cosmetics being leaked by data miners.
The game’s developers worked up towards the beginning of 2020 with the Winterfest and Star Wars events, but there’s still one more to be celebrated for one of China’s biggest holidays on January 25.
Fortnite leakers are always waiting in the wings when updates are rolled out, often stumbling upon different skins, styles, pickaxes, gliders, or other cosmetics found in the data files, and there appears to be a number of these leaked for the next in-game event too.
What skins will be added next in Fortnite Chapter 2?
Chinese New Year content has been added to Fortnite more than once in the past and it looks as if 2020 will be no different, as a number of skins and cosmetic items leaked ahead of schedule.
While many of the items included in the leaks below, provided by data miner ShiinaBR, surfaced in the aftermath of the v11.40 update – the first major patch since the turn of the new year – there is also one outfit that has been lingering around for quite some time, but not yet been released in the battle royale title.
Each section below includes both the outfit, potential styles, back blings, and more. So, let’s take a look.
Here’s the leaked Fortnite Tigress outfit and cosmetics.
Swift is expected to be released during the Chinese New Year event.
The leaked Gan skin appears to show two different styles. Would you prefer hair or no hair?
Jade Racer has two styles and two other cosmetics to come with it – at least.

Shifu and his Fortnite gear was leaked back in August 2019, but haven’t yet been added.
There has been no official word from Epic Games as to what will be included in the Chinese New Year event in-game, but fans – nevertheless – will be expecting these costumes and more to appear as we approach the big day on January 25.
Once we have more conclusive information about the event, in terms of official announcements, we’ll be the first to let you know. Hopefully, it won’t be long before these skin are all jumping from the Battle Bus with you.
Fortnite’s hotly-anticipated Galactus event, coming soon as the Season 4 finale, is the talk of the town; from when the Marvel character will make his mark, to how you can watch it in-game, here’s everything you need to know.
A bright object in the sky has begun hurtling towards the Fortnite map, and thanks to datamining and logic, it seems only reasonable to suggest that Galactus is on his way to cause destruction.
Similar to the devastation caused by the Season 1 meteor, you would have to think that his intentions are not good. It seems we’re gearing up for a massive battle featuring every Marvel character currently in the game.
The original Fortnite meteor was first spotted a month and a half before it landed – destroying Dusty Depot – and the same type of impact appears to be on the horizon.
Fortnite Galactus event start date and time
Such is the hype surrounding the appearance of Galactus that he’s taken an incredibly long time to appear. However, his arrival is finally set in stone.
The Nexus War finale event is a one-time spectacle set to kick off on Tuesday, December 1 at 4 PM ET | 1 PM PT | 9 PM GMT.
Some leaks of the upcoming event have made their way to the internet which depicts Thor, She-Hulk, Wolverine, and Iron Man offering themselves as soldiers to fight Galactus.
Fighting Galactus to end the Nexus War will be a one-time event. No replays for this historic battle.
Galactus Fortnite event leaks
The event itself could see the superheroes taking on Galactus in the form of a raid. Or you could possibly have Galactus taking on the whole lobby, or a Thanos-inspired mode akin to Chapter 1.
Galactus is officially listed as being 28ft tall and that in itself could offer some interesting gameplay options. Given that this will close out a season-long Nexus War, there’s a good chance you’ll have a ton of manual input here. So expect to help the heroes in their fight.
With the use of one of the game’s sniper rifles, it’s possible for players to look through the scope, at the object in the sky, and spy him. He’s obviously been getting closer and closer over the season, but thanks to new leaks, we’ve got a better look at the figure than ever before.
The main rumor concerning Phase 4 of the MCU is that Galactus will indeed be the archetypal villain of the main films. The Devourer of Worlds quite literally does what he says on the tin, and his power is unmatched.
The Fortnite tie-in will be a great way to introduce casual fans to the presence of one of the universe’s most powerful, cosmic entities.
We’ve also got a look at where Galactus is. It seems he’s positioned right about the ruins POI in-game from this screenshot from Fortnite leaker, Fevers.
On November 4, Fortnite data miner Mang0e tweeted about a mysterious new weapon in the works. Hardly anything is known about what this ‘Lazing Device’ is. However, Mang0e believes it could perhaps be a prototype for the upcoming Cosmos rifle.
Its base stats are that of the Bolt Sniper Rifle, which is the same as the Cosmos ones, too. Mang0e goes on to say in their Twitter thread that this is all speculation, however, but rebuffs his claims by saying that they were right about the Slurp Bazooka in the past.
New Weapon in the works: "Lazing Device"
It's WID is all over the place, but I suspect this *could* be a prototype of the upcoming Cosmos (event and/or Galactus) rifle.
It uses Base Bolt Sniper stats, same as the Cosmos ones. The name "Lazing" could also be connected to this. pic.twitter.com/GgVuOcYot8
