Fortnite – The Sport’s Closing Boss Continues His Ascent
In case you haven’t been maintaining with the grand finale of Fortnite’s Marvel season, I figured I’d put up an replace right here at weekly reset the place nothing large occurred, however one thing large is…persevering with to occur.
Within the distance, we’re seeing Galactus slowly stand up both over the horizon, or out of the water, I’m not fairly positive which. Day-after-day he appears to be getting somewhat bit larger, and it will finally culminated in when the countdown timer on the battle move desk reaches zero on December 1, once we will see him in all his glory after which…attempt to kill him.
What comes subsequent is being described as “an interactive Marvel movie,” and my concept is that will probably be a mix of each pre-rendered struggle sequences, Marvel NPCs zipping round doing injury to Galactus, and us as gamers capturing at him to take down trillions of HP throughout all platforms and servers of Fortnite, the end result of years of Epic gearing up for a giant “final boss” second like this, and what can be technically the most important online game boss struggle in historical past, with tens of millions of gamers collaborating on the identical time.
That is all resulting in what seems to be one of many largest moments in Fortnite’s lifespan, with the “Nexus War” apparently being a mix of IPs in a approach that we haven’t seen up to now, with the Metaverse extra in sight than ever as Epic seems to be to combine not simply Marvel, however much more IPs extra so than they’ve achieved up to now. We have already got seen leaks that present The Mandalorian and Child Yoda coming to the sport subsequent season, becoming a member of a bunch of Star Wars characters from again once they have been promotions for the brand new motion pictures.
However this Marvel season demonstrates Epic is utilizing these IPs and model offers as extra than simply advertising for outdoor properties. There have been no Marvel motion pictures or exhibits out throughout this whole season, this was not selling any particular Marvel factor. This was its personal, self-contained storyline taking place throughout the world of Fortnite, and I’d anticipate to see extra of this within the sport not simply from Marvel however from a great deal of manufacturers. Possibly Star Wars, sure, additionally owned by Disney, however that is the platform they’re attempting to construct.
Anyway, for now we will preserve monitoring Galactus transferring out of the water as we head into subsequent week’s large occasion. I’m undecided if that is hour by hour or daily, however I’m going to maintain checking in to see the place he’s at periodically, so keep tuned for that.
