The current Fortnite season has been all about Marvel. We’ve had a whole slew of character skins, cameos; you name it. But what would a major Marvel event be without the Eater of Worlds? Well, thanks to Alistair ‘Ali-A’ Aiken, a hidden map change might have been found for the next-gen console version of Fortnite. He thinks this is a Galactus event teaser for Fortnite, and it could be what ends Season 4!
No, we don’t mean the “Galactus Trilogy,” where the titular character first showed up at. No, it sounds like Galactus himself may be touching down pretty soon to kick off this Fortnite Galactus teaser. According to Ali-A, there are a few clues already in play that lead to this conclusion.
When dropping down onto a map for Fortnite, there’s what could be described as a “secret lair” shining off in the background. Sure, nobody has confirmed what this is, but who else could it be at this point? This glimmer of light is on another island, and it very well could be what leads to the ending event of Season 4 in Fortnite, a teaser that could bring us to Galactus himself.
“You see that light there, off in the distance. I first noticed that when I jumped on the next-gen version of Fortnite,” said Ali-A. “That light is super obvious, we don’t know what it is right now, but it could play a huge part in a live event or some part of the story.”
Fortnite’s devs don’t accidentally drop teasers into the game. If something is in the game, it’s there for a reason. Ali-A also urged players to keep looking for clues to see what else may have changed due to this. Ali-A, after all, is one of the most reliable sources of this sort of reveal. He’s typically the first to find new event teasers in the game, so if he thinks it’s Galactus coming to devour the island in Fortnite, it very well could be.
But what would Galactus need of a secret lair? Now, if it were his iconic starship, that would be far more interesting. We’ve already seen Thanos in Fortnite, so Galactus fits the bill if it were to be another cosmic, world-breaking entity. We’d also like to see God-Emperor Doom, as he’s another iconic, ultra-serious villain in the cosmic space of the Marvel universe.
If you want to see the reveal for yourself, it’s in this video, at the 3:04 mark. This could be a huge way to end the current season of Fortnite. What do you think? Is it Galactus? Doom? Another bout with Thanos? Skrulls? Let us know on social media!
