Fortnite Chapter 2 – Season 5 is currently live with new locations and characters along with a new Battle Pass. However, Season 4: Nexus War ended with a bang with players teaming up to fight against Marvel’s Galactus on a massive scale. According to the game’s official Twitter, 15.3 million concurrent players took the fight to the cosmic entity.
In terms of viewership, over 3.4 million watched the event on YouTube and Twitch. The actual mechanics saw players involved in a shoot ’em up mini-game, launching several Battle Buses armed with explosives into Galactus before he could absorb the Zero Point. This in turn led to him being pushed back, some how. Just roll with it.
The focus for Season 5 is the Zero Point being exposed and Agent Jonesy ensuring that everything is in order. He does this by recruiting hunters from numerous realities, including The Mandalorian. Players will get into the bounty hunting spirit by taking on requests from different characters and either recruiting them for help or fighting them for rewards. What other weapons and characters will join the fight? We’ll find out in the weeks.
