As teased for the previous few days, the Marvel universe has returned to Fortnite, this time for a battle a lot larger than final yr’s Thanos Avengers: Endgame crossover. Revealed early this morning, Fortnite Season 2 Chapter 4: Nexus Conflict brings a few of Marvel’s largest heroes to face Galactus, the traditional world-eating villain who threatens to devour the island as soon as and for all.
Iron Man, Wolverine, Storm, Mystique, Physician Doom, She-Hulk, and Groot be part of Thor in a battle cease Galactus earlier than it’s too late. This story, which appears to be a tie-in to a Thor arc within the Marvel comics, was foreshadowed within comic book pages found in the game last week, however few Fortnite gamers in all probability anticipated a Marvel replace of this scale. Try the story trailer for the replace:
It’s stunning simply how various the line-up of Marvel characters is for this replace. Whereas a few of these characters are a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, most of them are literally X-Men or Fantastic Four properties that haven’t appeared in lots of video games of late past Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3. With Marvel’s Avengers out subsequent month, you’d count on to see Captain America, Black Widow, Hulk, and Ms. Marvel operating across the sport as a veiled commercial for Sq. Enix’s loot action-adventure sport, which itself featured a questionable little bit of advert partnerships.
It’s not but clear how the heroes will play into the gameplay itself, though the Chapter 2 Season Four Battle Go trailer teases that the heroes will battle NPCs across the map. These NPC fights is likely to be tied to the “particular quests” gamers want to finish to “unlock their awakening, a built-in emote that reveals the hero or villain inside,” according to the update’s official page.
