Epic Games are giving Fortnite players an Afterparty wrap and Verve emote via the Party Royale mode, and we’ve got everything you need to know to redeem them both for free.

Party Royale has been a very well-received mode in Fortnite since being added back in May. Not only is it a safe space in which players can enjoy fun mini-games and live entertainment, but Epic are also giving away free cosmetic items to users for simply being there.

There are two items currently available for free, the first of which is a wrap called Afterparty, which features a black, light blue, pink and yellow color scheme in a leopard pattern design.

This wrap was released in celebration of Diplo’s upcoming final Party Royale show called Higher Ground, which will be 30-minutes long and take place on Friday, July 31 at 11 AM PT / 2 PM ET.

The other cosmetic that players can unlock for free is the Verve emote, which is part of We The People x More Than A Vote – a “series of conversations that bring together a coalition of athletes and entertainers to inspire and empower young adults to take action against the voter suppression crisis that is disproportionately impacting Black communities.”

We The People is making its Party Royale debut on Tuesday, July 28 at 4 PM PT / 7 PM ET and will be re-aired every other hour for 22 hours into Wednesday, July 29.

It’s during this span that any player who attends an in-game showing will receive a free emote called Verve, which is modeled after a dance created by TikToker Michael Mejeh, who won Fortnite’s Emote Royale Contest.

In order to redeem this emote for free, all you have to do is simply log into Fortnite anytime from July 27 at 5 PM PT / 8 PM ET to July 29 at 5 PM PT / 8 PM ET and it’ll automatically be gifted to you.


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.
