Epic Games have continued to promote their new RPG title Battle Breakers in Fortnite, offering those who try out their latest offering another free skin for the game’s Save the World mode.

Just like Fortnite, Battle Breakers is a free-to-play game, so there’s no upfront cost to trying it out, and with that in mind, Epic Games are encouraging players to try out the role-playing game, in hopes that it will be able to cultivate a rabid fanbase too.

Epic Games have already offered players a free Save the World skin in the form of Razor, but those who are grinding their way through Battle Breakers can now get their hands on another brand-new character from the game to use in Fortnite.

How to get Kurohomura skin in Fortnite

To get your hands on the Kurohomura skin, players will need to do some serious grinding on Battle Breakers, with plenty of bosses to take on and defeat in combat if you want to rock the special look in Save the World.

Playing the game and destroying these enemy bosses will reward players with XP, and once players reach the in-game milestone of Level 50, they will be gifted with the Kurohomura skin from Battle Breakers in an effort to convince players to give the new game a chance.

Once you have reached the magical Level 50, you won’t need to do anything on Fortnite, as the skin will appear in your inventory thanks to your Epic Games account, which you need to play Battle Breakers.

Will Kurohomura appear in Fortnite Battle Royale?

Epic Games have yet to officially confirm that we will see Kurohomura in the game’s Battle Royale mode, however, leaks suggest that the menacing figure will be making an appearance alongside Razor in the in-game store sooner rather than later.

While sifting through the cosmetics from the v11.20 update, data miners found the character in files specifically for the popular mode, indicating that they are intended to be added to Battle Royale in the future.

Whether they will be free like their Save the World counterparts, or will cost players money remains to be seen, but we’ll be sure to keep this post updated as new information becomes available.

Fortnite’s Galactus Nexus War finale event is finally over and it was packed full of a ton of Marvel-themed content. Here’s what went down during the insanely hyped event that closed off Season 4 of the popular game.

For a while now, Epic Games, Marvel, and the Fortnite community have been hyping up a brand new event to close out Chapter 2, Season 4 of Fortnite. Galactus, the Devourer of Worlds, had been slowly inching his way towards the island all season and on December 1, 2020, he finally arrived.

But what happened once he finally showed up to the Fortnite island? Did players have to fight him like we originally thought? Here’s what you need to know about what went down during the Nexus War finale event in case you missed it.

Fortnite Galactus Nexus War finale event recap

Epic Games/Marvel
Galactus wasted no time in destroying the Helicarrier at the start of the event.

All in all, the event itself was pretty short, clocking in at a little over 10 minutes when all was said and done. Still, there was a ton that happened during that span.

Once the in-game timer reached zero, the giant Galactus made his final push to the island. After declaring that he hungered, he destroyed the Helicarrier starting location with ease, sending you and all the other players flying across the sky.

Fortunately, Iron Man-himself flew in as you got close to hitting the ground, handing you a jetpack and telling you that it’s time to stop Galactus. Before you had a chance to do anything, however, the massive villain started consuming Zero Point, which started a “full reality collapse”.

After being transported by Iron Man, you reappeared, in first-person, inside of a Battle Bus decked out in weaponry and explosives. From that point on, your goal was to fly the Buses into Galactus and have him consume them, which ultimately sent him back to “where he came from.”

Epic Games/Marvel
In order to defeat Galactus, players had to drive Battle Buses decked out in weaponry and explosives towards the villain so that he would consume it.

A few Marvel characters even made small appearances, including Thor himself (who was one of the main characters this season) and even Wolverine, who helped you in the fight against Galactus.

After finally destroying a plethora of drones and getting close enough, Galactus got sent back to where he came from, you were teleported away to safety, and the event ended.

Epic Games/Marvel
Players were joined by both Thor and Wolverine during the event, who helped in taking down Galactus.

Of course, it wouldn’t be Marvel if there wasn’t a “post-credits scene.” After the event was over and Galactus got taken care of, players got a shot of Jonesy in his office, who wakes up suddenly before the screen says that the story is to be continued in Season 5.

Re-watch the entire Fortnite Galactus event

Unfortunately, if you were hoping to catch a re-run of the event inside of Fortnite itself, it seems like that’s not going to be possible. Epic Games has confirmed that it was a “one-time-only” event so if you missed out, you won’t be able to experience it again in-game.

However, we did record the entire experience, so can rewatch it as many times as you want:

What’s next?

Now that the Galactus event is over, Epic Games have confirmed that the Season 5 update will be released at 9 PM PT / 12 AM ET / 5 AM GMT on Wednesday, December 2, with the downtime expected to last all the way up to 1 AM PT / 4 AM ET / 9 AM GMT.

After that, the brand new season will kick off, and Fortnite fans will get to see what the devs have in store for them to enjoy!
