Files found in the V5.30 Update for Fortnite Battle Royal shows brand new PlayStation exclusive items expected to release in the near future.

Included are a new pickaxe, new glider and a new skydiving trail, although it is unknown when these items will be officially available to Fortnite players.

All three items feature classic PlayStation colours, and designs reminiscent of the legendary Sony console. 

The pickaxe is black, with blue accents and a blue lightning bolt on the top.

The new glider is predominantly white, with blue accents, and a smiling face found on the roof made with what look like googly eyes.

The final piece of the PlayStation exclusive set is the skydiving trail, a mainly blue trail with orange, green, blue and purple blocks eminitating from each limb, to mimic the recognisable button colours on the PlayStation controller.

This isn’t the first time that PlayStation has received exclusive Fortnite skins. Back in July, an exclusive skin and back bling was released on the PlayStation Store, while players also received an exclusive skin back back in February.

It is currently unknown when this PlayStation exclusive pack will officially launch, but it is expected to release before the end of Season 5.

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).
