Big developments in the world of Fortnite today according to two new comic pages that have just arrived minutes ago. We have seen Thor arrive on Fortnite Island and do battle with the confused locals, but now a larger threat is looming.
The pages this week show that Galactus is arriving to Fortnite island, though as of right now, only in the pages of the comic, not the actual game itself. Yet. I checked the map and the rift in the sky is the same, the area around Thor’s fallen hammer crater is the same, so unless I’m missing something, nothing new has been added there today.
So it seems like Galactus will be the big “map changing” thing heading into season 4 here, which starts on Thursday. I would not be surprised to see this Marvel-based story play out all season long as we figure out a way to prevent Galactus from eating Fortnite Island.
There’s something else significant in the pages of the comic this week, in that Thor sends an interdimensional raven back to Asgard to summon help from none other than famed warrior, Lady Sif.
Sif was seen across a few different Thor movies (and one Agents of SHIELD episode) in the MCU, but for Fortnite’s purposes, it seems as if she will arrive to help Thor in his coming battle against Galactus, along with what other Marvel heroes show up.
Sif being in the comic implies to me that it is very likely that she’s going to be a battle pass skin. Given that we normally have a male and female Tier 1 battle pass skin, my guess is that Thor and Lady Sif are going to be the two that we start with this time. I am feel like Galactus probably won’t be Tier 100, and may just be a larger-than-life presence on the map itself.
Besides this, other strings of text have leaked on the games website, implying more heroes and possibly villains are coming to the game. Here’s the ones we knew:
- Heralds alone won’t save us.
- Technology alone won’t save us.
- Rage alone won’t save us.
- Justice alone won’t save us.
And the new ones:
- Gods or Goddesses alone won’t save us.
- Chaos alone won’t save us.
- Deception alone won’t save us.
- Loyalty alone won’t save us.
It is anyone’s guess which heroes or villains may go with these, but the full rumor list includes the likes of Iron Man, Wolverine, Hulk, Groot, Storm and Doctor Doom. Add in your own picks based on that list, I suppose.
Regardless, this will be an exciting season debut on Thursday. For everyone but iOS users, I guess.
