Just a few days after her Fortnite Icon Series skin was leaked, Kathleen ‘Loserfruit’ Belsten has confirmed that the skin is on its way, but has been delayed due to current global events.

The Fortnite Icon Series was created to commemorate some of the biggest personalities that have come from Epic Games’ hit battle royale title. Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins was the first to get his own skin in January 2020, but nobody else has had one since.

Though rumors bounced around that other top influencers such as Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney would or should be honored, the only one that leaks really seemed to suggest were coming was that of Loserfruit’s.

Loserfruit has become massively popular through her Fortnite streams.

Loserfruit is an Australian content creator that saw huge growth thanks to her Fortnite streams, and on May 30, her Icon Series skins were leaked, revealing what fans could be getting in the near future.

Now, though, Loserfruit revealed in her June 3 stream that the skin has been, unfortunately, delayed.

“Update: Last night, at like 1am I think, me and Epic decided it wasn’t the right time to release the skin this week,” she said. “I think you guys know from the leaks – and I never acknowledge the leaks – that it was meant to come out on the third (of June).”

She continued: “So, we decided to wait. It didn’t feel right to do it… We can’t really celebrate at the moment.”

Loserfruit clearly looks a little upset at the change, calling the skin “one of the most crazy things that’s going to happen [to me],” but is evidently understanding of the situation given what is currently going on across the United States and globally.

She does go on to say that the skin won’t be coming this week, and “next week is the new season so it won’t be then either,” so fans may be looking closer to the end of June to see the Loserfruit skin in the Item Shop.

As for which other content creators will be added to the Icon Series line, we don’t know yet, but expect to see some big names in the coming months.

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!
