Fortnite’s latest season is here, this time focusing entirely on Marvel Comics heroes as they team up to take on Galactus. Why does Thor care about the world of Fortnite enough to summon the likes of Wolverine, Doctor Doom, Storm and She-Hulk? Why is Galactus threatening the island in the first place? The Nexus War trailer below answers none of these questions but looks nice anyway so check it out.
The key hook of this event is being able to use superpowers like Doctor Doom’s gauntlets, the Silver Surfer’s board and so on with more being added throughout the season. Several famous Marvel Comics locations have also been added to the island including Doom’s Domain and the Sentinel Graveyard. A new weapon is also in play with the Stark Industries Energy Rifle that varies in function depending on one’s aim.
You also have a SHIELD helicarrier on the map along with Stark Supply Drones that will provide Hero Abilities and weapons. There’s a new battle pass, of course, and as you unlock new heroes, you can complete various quests to “awaken” them. This translates to having an emote which “reveals the Hero or Villain within.” So basically just an emote.
Galactus hasn’t invaded the island yet so stay tuned for more details in the coming months as the season progresses.
