Fortnite fans are eagerly anticipating the upcoming end of season 9 event, with the latest development suggesting the battle between Cattus and Doggus could take to the skies.

Speculation has been rife in recent weeks after Epic Games left numerous hints around the Fortnite map which indicated that a massive end of season battle would go down between two monstrous creatures.

The monster from under Polar Peak, named ‘Cattus’, has been circling the map in recent weeks, leaving a trail of destruction in its wake. As a result, a giant robot is being constructed at Pressure Plant, named ‘Doggus’, presumably to put an end to the reign of terror.

has given fans the exact date and time that the event will take place, but another surprising development has given the story yet another twist, as wings were added to the robot at Pressure Plant.

Machines have worked around the clock to construct the huge metal soldier, with two large wings now present on it’s back, suggesting the fight might take to the sky.

It’s fairly safe to assume that the wings might have been added to counter the abilities of the Cattus monster, who may also be able to launch into the air if necessary.

Given all of the countdowns have appeared over the sky platforms around the map, players may be forced to watch from above and will be given a fantastic view if the fight does transition into an aerial duel.

The event will officially take place on Saturday 20 July at 3:00 PM EST meaning time is running out for the robot to be fully constructed.

With the final few pieces yet to be revealed, there may be another surprise waiting around the corner.

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).
