Fortnite’s v10.40 Update is now live on all platforms, and data miners have been scouring the game’s files to find all the leaked skins, back bling, harvesting tools, and more hidden inside the patch.

The v10.40 Update introduced a brand new location to the game called Starry Suburbs, while also making some major changes to how aim assist works for those who use a controller to play the popular battle royale title.

As with any patch, data miners are already sifting through the new additions to the game, and have discovered a host of cosmetics that will be coming to the in-game store in the near future.

Epic GamesFortnite’s Aim Assist system was updated in the v10.40 Update.

As always, Epic Games have hidden these items deep inside the patch files, but for those who are impatient and don’t want to wait on the developers to release them officially, leakers release them as soon as possible to give us a look at what’s coming next to the game.

As always, just because the skins, gliders, wraps, and more have been added to the game, it doesn’t guarantee that they will ever make it to the game. Some items that are added to the title are never released publically, so it’s always possible that you may never be able to rock them as you hunt for Victory Royales.

With last week’s v10.31 Update offering no new cosmetics to players, Epic have added a host of new items with this patch, and thanks to @ShiinaBR, @FunGamesLeaks, @MaxWinebach, and @Lucas7yoshi, you can take a look at what will be added to the store over the next few weeks.

Relive the Fortnite Galactus live event: full replay, HD images, recap

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!
