The best thing about a new Fortnite patch is often the fact that data miners are able to get their hands on the files and leak upcoming skins, items and cosmetics that are yet to go live.

This was, once again, the case with the release of the v6.20 patch on October 24. The update was already pretty awesome as it introduced the Fortnitemares 2018 event, challenges, skin, and even an all-new western-themed pistol called the ‘Six Shooter’, but the latest leaks make it even better!

As is almost always the case, @TwoEpicBuddies, a well-known data mining account on Twitter, was one of the first to release a number of new skins, cosmetics and emotes that we can expect to see coming to the game.

It looks like the Halloween theme is once again continuing, with a few skins that are clearly inspired by Mexico’s Day of the Dead celebrations, a Zombie Jonesy, and more. They’ve also included another look at the new Deadfire skin, which has progressive styles that change in-game.

Fortnite Galactus skin leaked ahead of Season 4 finale event

Just days ahead of Fortnite’s Galactus live event on December 1, data-miners have leaked a highly anticipated Galactus skin without spoiling event details. 

Galactus, the “Devourer of Worlds,” has been approaching Fortnite’s island and his unavoidable arrival is finally nigh. In a one-time-only, live Season 4 “Nexus War” finale on December 1, Marvel’s world-eater and Epic Games’ player base will collide. 

While fans currently know that the gigantic, cosmic entity is making his way to the Island and that something will be happening on the aforementioned date at 4 p.m. ET, few details are available.

Fortunately for impatient aficionados of the battle royale, dataminers have leaked a Galactus skin that should be coming to the game’s shop with a bundle at some point.

The Galactus skin doesn’t seem massive, but it’s definitely spooky.

While it’s unclear exactly how similar this skin will be to the teased images of a gargantuan, shadowy Galactus shared by Epic themselves, the skin most certainly presents an imposing figure. 

Dressed in glistening jet black and red, the skin features regal, villainous armor bookended by chunky boots and a massive helmet. Eagle-eyed fans might even notice a particularly smug smile sitting across the infamous villain’s purple face.

It remains uncertain if this skin will be available for purchase and, if so, when it will be. But leakers like ‘ximton’ have discovered files indicating it could be part of a bundle. Still, in order to save fans from leaks, dataminers have remained largely quiet about specific event details.

Fortnite Galactus event – what we know so far

A variety of leaks have already surfaced, showing a gigantic Galactus and teasing the possibilities of a major battle between Marvel’s heroes and the cosmic world-eater. But Epic Games have tried to keep things on the low, only confirming that “the fate of all Reality lies in the balance.”

As mentioned earlier, the finale event begins on Tuesday, December 1 at 4 p.m. ET (1 p.m. PT, 9 p.m. GMT) and its exact duration is unknown. Epic have advised players to download the latest update (14.60) and Houseparty (which is integrated with Fortnite to allow for live video chat).
