Epic Games have confirmed that the previously leaked Lava Legends cosmetic pack will soon land in Fortnite Battle Royale‘s online Item Shop. 

Fortnite Season 8 has been largely shaped by a number of big changes in the northeast side of the map, including a brand new volcano springing up near the old location of Wailing Woods. 

Coming up next, it looks like molten rock is not only going to pouring all over the map in a new ‘The Floor is Lava’ LTM, but a number of lava inspired cosmetics will soon be available for battle royale players to purchase. 

Epic GamesThe Floor is Lava LTM might not be the last lava-inspired feature to be coming soon in Fortnite.

Following the arrival of the v8.20 patch, which included controversial changes to health and eliminations, data miner @Lucas7yoshi leaked the new Lava Legends pack and it has since been confirmed by the game’s developer.  

As is the case with many of these cosmetic packs, there are a number of new skins to take a look at, the new package will also include two brand new Back Blings, a glider and a weapon wrap.

The bulk of cosmetics included in this pack are Legendary, in terms of their rarity, and the Molten Battle Hound skin (left), as well as the Molten Valkyrie outfit (right) are already generating a lot of interest. 

The new Back Blings are easily distinguishable too, as one is a Molten Crested Cape and the other is a set of dragon wings, which is expected to have an official name of Molten Valkyrie Wings. The Lavawing glider, as seen in the top left, and the Epic Magma weapon wrap. 

If you would like to take a look at each of these items one by one, the full list can be seen below:

For those wanting a closer look at the skins, Fortnite professional player Brett ‘Dakotaz‘ Hoffman has also shared a video on Twitter which shows a 360° view of the pair in-game – as seen below.

The new package of cosmetics was not the only piece of unreleased content to be revealed by data miners since Fortnite’s v8.20 update went live, as a number of other skins, gliders and pickaxes were leaked. 

Some streamers have already been granted access to play with the new characters and use the Lava Legends cosmetics. We’ll keep you updated on when they will be available for everybody in the Item Shop as soon as the announcement is made. 


How to watch Fortnite’s Galactus event: Start time, leaks, location, more

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.
