Fortnite is coming back to TwitchCon with another tournament and it’s featuring a whopping $1.3 million prize pool. Here’s how you can tune in.

The first time Fortnite came to TwitchCon it was for the culmination of the Fall Skirmish back in 2018. Now, Fortnite returns to the Twitch Rivals arena with a much wider pool of entrants.

Unlike most Twitch Rivals events, this event is open to all partners and affiliates, rather than an invited list of high caliber streamers. This means that most people attending TwitchCon will be able to participate, so long as they meet Twitch’s requirements to be an affiliate.

The tournament will take place on September 27 and you’ll be able to watch along with the official Twitch Rivals broadcast.

It remains to be seen if the streamers will be able to stream from their own channels. Since the event is being held in person at TwitchCon, the best we’ll probably get is the streamers hosting the broadcast from their channel.

It’ll be an all-day event so if you plan on watching it all, you’ll need to put aside pretty much the whole day as the action begins at 11 AM PST / 2 PM EST / 7 PM BST on September 27 and the Grand Finals kick off six hours after that.

What’s the format?

This event will be in the trios format, which is something viewers should be familiar with given the Fortnite Champion Series.

What’s different about Twitch Rivals is it won’t all be pros competing but instead you’ll be getting a mix of content creators in here as well.

Here’s a look at the full format as explained by Twitch Rivals.

  • Game Mode: Arena Trios
  • Teams of three (trios) will compete in the live Qualifiers for a share of the prize pool and an opportunity to advance to the Grand Finals.
  • The live Qualifiers will be comprised of three waves, each with three games.
  • Teams will play in only one wave (three games).
  • Six teams will advance per wave (victory royales + highest eliminations) to the Grand Finals.
  • Twelve teams will be directly invited to the Grand Finals. The other eighteen teams will come from the live Qualifiers.
  • During the changeover between each Qualifier, pre-selected creators will compete in a 1v1 build battle.

Fortnite Apex Legends, League of Legends, and a Teamfight Tactics tournament to look forward to.

It’ll be an action-packed weekend so make sure you stick around and watch your favorite streamers battle it out against each other.


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.
