Epic Games has introduced even more Marvel map changes in Fortnite’s Chapter 2, Season 4, with the Collector’s Museum from Guardians of the Galaxy now appearing in-game.

Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 4 is continuing to deliver more Marvel-themed changes for fans to enjoy, with the Rift Beacons charging up and adding new points-of-interest around the map.

Following the addition of the Panther’s Prowl monument and Ant Manor, the Rift Beacons have brought yet another familiar location to the Fortnite universe on September 6.

A new Marvel POI has arrived near Catty’s Corner.

The latest POI to be added to the Marvel-themed season is the Collector’s Museum from the planet “Knowhere” and it has now appeared on the Fortnite map near Catty’s Corner.

The Collector’s Museum played a big part in recent Marvel movies. It was properly introduced in Guardians of the Galaxy and Avengers: Infinity War as the home to the Reality Stone, after briefly appearing in Thor: The Dark World.

To find this new point-of-interest on the map, Fortnite players will need to travel directly east of Catty’s Corner and look for it sitting near the top of the mountain.

However, like the other Marvel locations in Fortnite, the Collector’s Museum does not offer much loot for players to collect, meaning that it might not be the best place to start your game.

The Rift Beacons, that transported the Collector’s museum, have also seemingly moved into a “new stage,” suggesting that some of the biggest map changes in Season 4 are yet to arrive.

The superheroes, that were introduced in Season 4, seem to be taking control over different parts of the map with these locations, in preparation for their final battle with Galactus.

With Groot added as the only playable character from Guardians of the Galaxy, it is possible that this new POI could play a part in his storyline, but we’ll have to wait a little longer to find out.

Fortnite and Marvel have crossed paths time and time again, and it looks like their integration won’t be slowing down any time soon after Epic Games’ Creative Director Donald Mustard confirmed they have content planned for “many years.”

Fortnite is the gift that keeps on giving, even after all these years. New seasons and chapters keep it fresh by adding content and ditching other bits and pieces to mix things up.

Typically, each one introduces a new storyline complete with events, map changes, and themes. Naturally, that means players also get their hands on new skins, vehicles, weapons, and more.

Fortnite has had a series of incredible crossovers along the way too, including integrations with Batman, John Wick, Star Wars, and Stranger Things, to name a few. However, none have come close to the sheer level of epicness as Fortnite x Marvel.

Fortnite and Marvel have crossed paths many times before.

Marvel crashed its way into Fortnite back when Avengers: Infinity War released in cinemas. It happened again with Avengers: Endgame. Fortnite even found it’s way into the movie. And of course, it’s happening again right now.

It’s a mutually beneficial relationship, and one that fans of both franchises would love to see more of. Thankfully, their prayers have now been answered.

Fortnite X Marvel will happen for “many years”

Epic Games’ Creative Director Donald Mustard opened up about the crossovers between Fortnite and Marvel in the latest episode of the ‘This Week In Marvel’ podcast. He confirmed that the two worlds would collide for many years to come.

“This is just the start,” he said. “This is the start of lots of stuff we have planned for many years in this Marvel integration. Like, this is not the end. This is the beginning.”

You can listen to the full episode here. This quote and the discussion around it start at the 38:20 mark.

Donald Mustard may have said too much

Many thought the current crossover could be the last. But thankfully, Donald Mustard himself confirmed that isn’t the case, although he says he might have “dropped too many hints” in his time on the podcast.

If you listen to the whole episode, you’ll realize how passionate he is about Marvel. He’s been a long time fan for many years, and being able to integrate his favorite characters into Fortnite has been a dream come true.

What’s more, he’s proud of the fact that Fortnite has become a part of the Marvel universe as well. For example, the Fortnite x Marvel Nexus War is canon. It’s even been published as an official comic.

Either way, it doesn’t matter whether you recognize it as official or not. Fortnite x Marvel has been a smash hit, and it’s here to stay.
