EXPLORE STARK INDUSTRIES
Genius. Billionaire. Philanthropist. Tony Stark’s confidence is only matched by his technology and business savvy.
The center of much super activity, the high-tech Stark Industries is now on the map. Explore this esteemed complex to gather loot and maybe even meet a Hero (or Villain)…
THE FORCES OF GALACTUS DESCEND
Drawing nearer to the Island, Galactus now has his own enemy Drones roaming the battlefield. These Gatherer Drones are designed for collecting loot, but they’re also loot themselves: upon defeat, they’ll deactivate and turn into their weapon form. Deactivated Gatherers are highly unstable, so they’ll explode if you don’t pick them up quickly!
Downtime has begun!
The official Fortnite Status Twitter has tweeted out that downtime has begun, in preparation of patch V14.10.

WOW - It's coming!
Iron Man POI
The first note of the patch notes appears to be a reference to the brand new POI at the center of the map.
Epic has noted "Explore the R&D Lab and Battle Bus chop shop"
We will have to see how massive this POI is tomorrow.
Leaked sometime ago by HYPEX, we knew we were going to get brand new Mythic Weapons at some point.
But, we did not know when they would be coming.
WOW - So many!
Now, according to the notes it appears Iron Man's and Thor's are coming to the game.
"The Stark Industries Update assembles more powers. Check out Thor’s Mjolnir Strike, Iron Man’s Repulsor Gauntlets, and more."
Become A Hero
Perhaps the most intriguing aspect of this update is a brand new skin coming to the item shop.
It appears players will be able to fully customize their own super hero skin!
