Fortnite has run several Marvel-centric events thus far, including Avengers, Deadpool, and Wolverine challenges, but things are getting a little more intense–and the stakes are getting higher–in its latest event. Fortnite: Nexus War will come to a close on December 1, and it’s up to players to defeat Galactus or risk having the universe itself destroyed.
The Battle Bus is loaded and ready to go.
This is our final stand to save all Reality.

The fight against Galactus kicks off on December 1 at 1 PM PT / 4 PM ET, and it’s a one-time-only event. Epic Games recommends you get into Fortnite about an hour before the scheduled start time and the playlist will appear about 30 minutes prior to the event. You’ll need to have update 14.60 downloaded in order to play and as the court case continues between Apple and Epic Games, iOS players are still left out of the fun. It’s possible there could be a workaround on the way via iOS’ Safari web browser, which is what some other companies are also doing instead of supporting dedicated apps.
Just a few days ago, Fortnite also brought video chat to the game through the Houseparty app. It’s available for the PC, PS5, and PS4 versions of the game and you need to have either an iOS or Android phone with the app installed. If you link your accounts, you’ll get a special Rainbow Fog Wrap, as well.
