Harry Kane has revealed the secret to the England football team’s current success at the World Cup and yes, you guessed it, it’s Fortnite Battle Royale!

“It’s coming home.” That’s the sentence that any English football fan will respond with if you ask them about England’s chances in the 2018 FIFA World Cup.

Now, thanks to Fortnite, that is looking more likely than ever before.

You might think that we’re over exaggerating this point, England is now through to the quarter-final stage of the biggest tournament in football for the first time in 12 years, and it’s happened with a squad that many pundits had doubts about.

In a recent interview with the BBC, the team’s captain, Harry Kane, revealed that him and the team are enjoying playing “more Fortnite than ever” while at the competition, and we believe the results speak for themselves!

The interviewer, Gabby Logan, asked Kane what he’s doing at the World Cup that he “really enjoys”, and the England skipper needed no time at all to answer:

“Playing Fortnite!

As silly as that sounds, it passed the time quite well, so there are quite a few of us just playing a few games of that.”

Kane goes on to state that his partner keeps saying that it feels like the team is “on a boys’ holiday” with everyone “just playing Fortnite” and he says he wants to “enjoy it while it lasts”!

It’s no secret that some of the England players are fans of Fortnite. Kane’s Tottenham Hostpur teammate, Dele Alli, has previously streamed his games on Twitch and both of them have played with Fortnite sensation Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins in the past.

England will face Sweden in the quarter-final stage of the World Cup on July 7th, but don’t be surprised if you find yourself losing a building battle to “hkane93” before that!

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!
