Epic Games have finally released their first batch of Halloween outfits for Fortnite Chapter 2 and The Final Reckoning pack might be the creepiest the game’s ever seen.

In recent years, Halloween has brought out some fantastic content from Epic Games. The Ghoul Trooper skin, inspired by the infamous Skull Trooper skin, came out for Halloween 2018, alongside other skins such as the Jack O’ Lantern.

On the other hand, Fortnitemares was widely regarded as a terrible addition to the game, the inclusion of zombies, or ‘Cube Monsters’, very divisive amongst the community. Yet, the new cosmetics that are coming to the battle royale game this year might be the best they have ever released. 

So, let’s take a look at what this new pack brings.

Epic GamesCube Monsters have been brought back to Fortnite on occasion, but are largely seen negatively by the community.

What does it include? 

Don’t worry if these skins feel slightly familiar, as they were previously tweeted out by FNBRHQ on October 22, courtesy of leaker FunGamesLeaks. The Final Reckoning set of skins brings three different skins, all of which are like nothing we have ever seen before. 

One seems to be inspired by Tim Burton, a female doll with crossed buttons for eyes, while another seems to be a basic hooded skin, albeit with a purple x-ray hue and purple bat-like wings. The third and final skin is another hooded one, adorned by a skeleton and covered in flowers.

Epic GamesFortnite’s The Final Reckoning Halloween pack is now live.

While the skins might be the most interesting part for some players, that’s not all that is included in this bundle. There are also a selection of cosmetics also in the deal. 

Indigo Wings (Epic), Mourning Glory (Epic) and Dolly Fortnite (Epic) Back Blings are part of the pack, along with Ultra Scythe (Uncommon) and Blooming Bones (Rare) Pickaxes – all of which can be seen below.

How much is Fortnite’s Final Reckoning bundle?

After first being made available in Australia on October 24, the spooky set is now ready for people to buy all around the world. 

Just like many other packs in Fortnite, it is available as a set – meaning that once you make your purchase, you will receive all of these new skins and cosmetics. 

It’s available in the Fortnite Item Shop for $17.99 (£13.99/€17.99/$26.95 AUD).

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.

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.

First look at Galactus

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.

It turns out there’s actually a standard sized Galactus skin in the game’s files. Perhaps we’ll be able to run around as the Devourer of Worlds after the event. Only time will tell.

Here are some datamined images of Galactus’ model, too.

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.

Rising Out of the Water

ShiinaBR also tweeted on November 22, 2020 that Galactus has slowly begun to rise out of the water. We’ll make sure to update this article when we have a better look at this.

Lazing Device

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.
