What to Expect

There is a lot of speculation as to what Season 5 might have in store.

With rumours that the Marvel story may continue, to even rumours of the old map, or at least a hybrid, coming to the game.

But with Season 5 taking place during the holidays, much like Chapter 1 Season 7, it is possible that the game, and Battle Pass, will be more holiday-themed again.

Players Will Drive The Battle Bus During Galactus Event

It has now been confirmed by Epic Games that players will be able to drive the Battle Bus as part of the upcoming Galactus event.

Recently they have been hinting at it, such as by showing Gamma Cells loaded in the Battle Bus, presumably to use the bus as an RC missile.

The Fortnite characters have loaded the buses with Gamma Cells, could these be enough to take down Galactus and save the Fortnite map?

With the event being the biggest yet, 4GB in size compared to the Black Hole event which was 480MB, it seems this will be a long event with many twists and turns.


Black Hole 2

It has been leaked that Galactus will destroy the current Chapter 2 map, taking us to a two-day downtime like the black hole event.

With the event taking place on 1 December, the game will remain offline until Thursday, 3 December.

A Reddit user posted a leaked clip of what will happen when players load back into the game when downtime ends.

New Map?

With Galactus destroying the Chapter 2 map, it is expected that Season 5 will bring a hybrid map of Chapter 1 and Chapter 2.

REMIX: The map is expected to be a remixed version of Chapter 1 and 2. This is a fan made creation, not a leaked map.

The map will have a new design and will blend the best parts of each map, with many POIs returning, such as Tilted Towers.
