The finale to Season 4, which told a superhero-themed narrative called ‘Nexus War,’ saw players band together to take down Marvel supervillain Galactus.
The one-time event took place on December 1 at 4 pm ET and was open to players on all platforms except iOS – where Fortnite remains stuck in Season 3 limbo due to Epic’s ongoing legal dispute with Apple.
