Epic Games took competitive Fortnite across the world on December 14, as they paired top players like Tfue, Myth and NickEh30, up against the top players from South Korea.

Epic Games is keen to continue developing interest in Fortnite around the world, and with an already passionate player base in South Korea, an official tournament was perfect for the region.

There was a mix of solos and duos, with two South Koreans, ‘Sinooh’ and ‘Milfy’, taking the top spot in solos, while FaZe Clan’s Tfue and streamer KittyPlays took top spot in the duos event.

There was one billion Korean won in total up for grabs, but as a charity event the players weren’t netting it themselves, rather donating it to good causes.

Aside from the Western Fortnite pros and streamers,  retired Korean Starcraft pros Hong Jin-ho and Lee Jae-dong also took part, as well as Korean PUBG player YoonRoot.

There were even K-Pop stars, Gongchan from B1A4, Luda from Cosmic Girls and Mimi from Gugudan, in attendance.

Summer Skirmish winner Morgausse managed to break into the top 10 of the solos event, but it was the Koreans, Sinooh and Milfy who took first and second respectively. who took the top spot.

Top 3-10 in Duos, as Sinooh and Milfy took 1st and 2nd.

The main event however, the duos tournament, was a different story. Fall Skirmish champion Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney proved why he is considered one of the best players in the world, andwe can’t forget his partner, streamer Kitty Plays, who helped secure 1st place.

The rest of the top 10 in duos was a majority of Korean players, including runners up Ohking and solo champion Sinooh – who had a great event all round with a 1st and 2nd.

Overall a major success, the Korea University gym was packed for the event, which was casted by Zeke and MonsterDFace for the english viewers.

Epic Games will be hoping that this event, and the success of Korean players, will help further boost Fortnite’s popularity in the country, where competitor PUBG is arguably still the favored title.

Fortnite’s hotly-anticipated Galactus event, coming soon as the Season 4 finale, is the talk of the town; from when the Marvel character will make his mark, to how you can watch it in-game, here’s everything you need to know.

A bright object in the sky has begun hurtling towards the Fortnite map, and thanks to datamining and logic, it seems only reasonable to suggest that Galactus is on his way to cause destruction.

Similar to the devastation caused by the Season 1 meteor, you would have to think that his intentions are not good. It seems we’re gearing up for a massive battle featuring every Marvel character currently in the game.

The original Fortnite meteor was first spotted a month and a half before it landed – destroying Dusty Depot – and the same type of impact appears to be on the horizon.

Fortnite Galactus event start date and time

Such is the hype surrounding the appearance of Galactus that he’s taken an incredibly long time to appear. However, his arrival is finally set in stone.

The Nexus War finale event is a one-time spectacle set to kick off on Tuesday, December 1 at 4 PM ET | 1 PM PT | 9 PM GMT.

Some leaks of the upcoming event have made their way to the internet which depicts Thor, She-Hulk, Wolverine, and Iron Man offering themselves as soldiers to fight Galactus.

Fighting Galactus to end the Nexus War will be a one-time event. No replays for this historic battle.

The event itself could see the superheroes taking on Galactus in the form of a raid. Or you could possibly have Galactus taking on the whole lobby, or a Thanos-inspired mode akin to Chapter 1.

Galactus is officially listed as being 28ft tall and that in itself could offer some interesting gameplay options. Given that this will close out a season-long Nexus War, there’s a good chance you’ll have a ton of manual input here. So expect to help the heroes in their fight.

First look at Galactus

With the use of one of the game’s sniper rifles, it’s possible for players to look through the scope, at the object in the sky, and spy him. He’s obviously been getting closer and closer over the season, but thanks to new leaks, we’ve got a better look at the figure than ever before.

It turns out there’s actually a standard sized Galactus skin in the game’s files. Perhaps we’ll be able to run around as the Devourer of Worlds after the event. Only time will tell.

Here are some datamined images of Galactus’ model, too.

The main rumor concerning Phase 4 of the MCU is that Galactus will indeed be the archetypal villain of the main films. The Devourer of Worlds quite literally does what he says on the tin, and his power is unmatched.

The Fortnite tie-in will be a great way to introduce casual fans to the presence of one of the universe’s most powerful, cosmic entities.

We’ve also got a look at where Galactus is. It seems he’s positioned right about the ruins POI in-game from this screenshot from Fortnite leaker, Fevers.

Rising Out of the Water

ShiinaBR also tweeted on November 22, 2020 that Galactus has slowly begun to rise out of the water. We’ll make sure to update this article when we have a better look at this.

Lazing Device

On November 4, Fortnite data miner Mang0e tweeted about a mysterious new weapon in the works. Hardly anything is known about what this ‘Lazing Device’ is. However, Mang0e believes it could perhaps be a prototype for the upcoming Cosmos rifle.

Its base stats are that of the Bolt Sniper Rifle, which is the same as the Cosmos ones, too. Mang0e goes on to say in their Twitter thread that this is all speculation, however, but rebuffs his claims by saying that they were right about the Slurp Bazooka in the past.
