Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 5 is right around the corner, with the Galactus event confirmed for December 1st.
The event leaves a lot of speculation as to what to expect from Season 5.
Here's all we know!
When Does Season 4 End?
Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 4 was originally scheduled to end on November 30th.
This was then changed to December 3rd part way through the season.
Originally the season was due to end on a Sunday, something that has never happened before.
Now it is due to end on a Thursday, the typical day for a new Fortnite season.
Black Hole Part 2?
It has been leaked that Galactus will destroy the current Chapter 2 map, taking us to a 2 day downtime like the black hole event.
With the event taking place on December 1st, the game will remain offline until December 3rd.
A Reddit user posted a leaked clip of what will happen when players load back into the game when downtime ends on December 3rd.
The Black Hole event was the biggest moment in Fortnite history, reaching peak interest in Google searches, as well as making headlines around the world.
Season 5 Theme
Every season of Fortnite has its own theme that the season is centred around.
In the past we've seen;
- Season 1 – Theme = NONE
- Season 2 – Theme = Medieval
- Season 3 -Theme = Space
- Season 4 – Theme = Super Heroes
- Season 5 – Theme = Worlds Collide
- Season 6 – Theme = Halloween
- Season 7 – Theme = Winter
- Season 8 – Theme = Pirates
- Season 9 – Theme = Future
- Season X – Theme = Time
- CH2S1 – Theme = Doppelgangers
- CH2S2 – Theme = Ghost vs Shadow
- CH2S3 - Theme = Aquatic
- CH2S4 - Theme = Marvel
However, Chapter 2 Season 4 is the first season where we've seen a theme outside of the world of Fortnite.
Fortnite and Marvel have been collaborating since the early days of the game.
In 2018 there was the original Thanos LTM which allowed players to transform into Thanos.
While in 2019 there was another event which saw players be able to use Marvel themed weapons, much like what we see now in Season 4.
The collaboration is expected to last much longer than just this season and will be a multi-year collaboration.
Fortnite content creator, SypherPK, recently discussed in a video what Season 5 might be like.
In the video he mentioned that the end of season event will be the biggest that we have ever seen, and the story likely won't conclude with the event.
He theorizes that the Marvel story, and the Nexus War, will likely continue into Season 5.
Good news if you're a huge fan of Chapter 2 Season 4, but not so much if you can't wait for the Mythic abilities to leave the game.
With Galactus destroying the Chapter 2 map, it is expected that Season 5 will bring a hybrid map of Chapter 1 and Chapter 2.
The map will have a new design and will blend the best parts of each map, with many POIs returning, such as Tilted Towers.
The start of Season 5 was delayed until December 3rd, the original date was scheduled to be November 30th.
Whether or not the season gets delayed is still a mystery, but we will have to wait and see.
