Fortnite Galactus Event: recap, HD images & more

The epic conclusion of Fortnite Season 4 comes down to the ultimate showdown with Galactus. Here’s what you missed.

The Fortnite Galactus event has concluded. If you didn’t get a chance to see it, here’s a full recap and where you can watch the event.

The Fortnite Galactus event took place on December 1, 2020 at 4:10 PM EST. It was the most highly anticipated event yet and had plenty of surprises in store for players.

For weeks, players have been awaiting Galactus’ arrival, and they got just that.

Full Timeline

In the beginning of the event, we were patiently waiting by a countdown timer. In the distance stood a tall, idle Galactus. Shortly after the timer hit 0, Galactus began walking towards us.

The following minute was filled with tension as he slowly walked closer and closer to us. As Galactus approached our position, he let out a powerful groan, prepared an attack, and struck all players off of our flying fortress, and we were sprung into the air, helpless.

For a few seconds, we were left to believe we were immediately brought to our demise by Galactus. Then, out in the distance came a flying, colorful figure – Iron Man himself. Our party cheered with excitement as he offered us a jetpack, bringing us back into the action.

Once we gained our balance in the air via jetpack, we turned around to spot Galactus trying to eat the zero point. It appears all is but over until Iron Man teleports us inside of a battle bus.

Once teleported, we were brought to a first-person perspective inside of a customized battle bus, filled with explosives and modified with lasers.

The plan was simple. Iron Man created billions of Battle Busses, all armed with explosives. Our job was to navigate them to Galactus while fending off waves of drones. Throughout the counter-offense, we were assisted by heroes Wolverine & Thor, before being treated to a final tense shooting sequence to the tune of “Demon Fire” by AC/DC.

Once we closed into the final moments, Iron Man teleported us out of the Battle Bus, and we were left with a scene of the busses piling into Galactus and exploding, apparently defeating him. Soon after, the event cut to a loading screen, and we were brought to a brief scene of Jonesy knocked out in his office.

This scene ended abruptly with a “continued in Season 5” message, then the Fortnite servers disconnected, stating they would return approximately 7 hours after the event at 12 AM EST on December 2.

You can catch the whole event live in the video linked below.

That’s it for now, hopefully we’ll have more answers once the servers come back online for Season 5.

Ariana Grande in Fortnite

A brand-new concert event has been leaked for Fortnite Season 7, with singer and actress Ariana Grande set to arrive as a new skin. Here’s everything we know about the event, including the start date.

Fortnite has seen several in-game events such as the Cosmic Summer Celebration, Rainbow Royale event, and even a Travis Scott concert. Now, it seems that another concert event will be coming to the game.

Some new leaks revealed the arrival of singer and actress Ariana Grande to the battle royale as a new skin and some other cosmetics during an upcoming in-game concert event.

When is the Fortnite Ariana Grande concert?

According to notable Fortnite data miner iFireMonkey, the Ariana concert is currently set to take place on July 31, 2021. The files required for the event will be added when the v17.21 update goes live.

Content creator Ali-A has a theory that the recent influx of Pride cosmetics, the Rainbow Royale, and Ariana Grande concert are all connected, as the singer is performing at a Pride event in August.

Other leaks suggest that the Epic Games staff have already conducted a test launch for the in-game concert, so this release date is likely accurate. 

However, reputable Fortnite data miner and leaker HYPEX posted on July 29 that the Ariana Grande Fortnite concert is set to take place on August 6, 7, and 8.

With the official announcement of the Rift Tour musical event for the game on July 29 stating that it will be taking place on August 6 through the 8, these dates look to be when this highly-anticipated concert is taking place.

How much will the Fortnite Ariana Grande skin cost?

When Travis Scott came to Fortnite as a new skin, he was available as part of the battle royale’s ICON Series. The Ariana Grande skin will probably be released through the same means.

In that case, the skin will cost around 1,500 V-Bucks. This is the same price set for recent ICON Series skins like World Cup winner Bugha and NBA superstar Lebron James.

There will also be other cosmetics that arrive as part of the concert event, but details regarding all of this have been scarce. So we don’t know the exact price for these items, but we expect them to cost the same as previous Icon Series cosmetic sets.

Fortnite Season 7 Kymera and alien invasion

With Season 8 set to start in September, the Ariana Grande concert event might be a fantastic way to make the final month of Season 7 more memorable. So far, Epic Games have been keeping it under wraps.

We’ll keep checking for more news regarding this and will be sure to update this article as we learn more. Stay tuned to Charlie INTEL for updates, and check out how to complete all the Ferrari challenges in Fortnite.

Each new week of Fortnite brings a ton of Legendary and Epic Quests that you can complete to earn some neat XP and Battle Stars as you progress through the Season 7 Battle Pass.

Where to get a Fortnite access card from IO Guards

Fortnite IO Guard Access Card

The IO is an organization that first appeared in Fortnite Season 5 but was then removed for Season 6. Now, Season 7 has brought these enemies back, and you’ll need to kill one to get the card.

There are a total of 10 different IO Guards spawn points around the map, and you can check all these locations in our IO Guards locations guide. However, we recommend visiting Corny Complex to get the Fortnite access card.

There are various IO Guards in the house, barn, and underground bunker. You can also loot some weapons and shield potions from the surrounding area.

If you want to access the underground bunker, you can either use the stairs in the barn or use the porta-potty located inside the house. You can then take on the IO Guard in combat to get a Fortnite access card.

Once you’ve killed one, they will drop a Fortnite access card for you to collect. You can pick it up to complete the Legendary Quest and earn a whopping 45,000 XP.
