Marvel world-muncher Galactus just ate Fortnite

At least, that’s the best I can describe what just happened in Fortnite‘s superhero-packed finale for Chapter 2, Season 4. The cinematic climax to an Avengers-themed period of murder island antics just wrapped up with a wonderfully bizarre dogfighting section, hurling players straight into the planet-killer’s tummy before pulling the servers offline to prepare for season 5.

Confused? Same, bud, so let’s take that again, step-by-step, with a recap captured by YouTuber Guille-GAG.

wot sucked the game’s main menu into a singularity, but it’s kinda wild how Epic are able to blend a multiplayer deathmatch with this kind of cinematic framing (though, as ever, it’s worth pointing out the human toll of Fortnite’s frantic update cycle).

Following the spectacle, Fortnite’s servers shut down for maintenance. They should return alongside Season 5 at around 8am UK time (4am ET).
