Epic Games has announced its plans to have the Fortnite island attacked by Galactus, and we even know when to expect the finale of the Nexus War to begin.

The good news is that everyone will be able to log in and check out the special playlist across PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series, Nintendo Switch, PC and Mobile.

The only downside is that the big Fortnite Galactus event will not be repeated, meaning if you’re not on the servers at the right time, you will miss out.

And for gamers in the UK, the timing won’t be the best for everyone who wants to tune in and watch the chaos unfold.

It’s a hard ask to expect Epic Games to make it easy for everyone to watch, so someone is always going to have a bigger challenge than others.

Here’s what we know is being planned for the Fortnite Galactus live event across all platforms:


Epic Games has announced that the Fortnite Galactus event will begin at 4PM ET on Tuesday, December 1, 2020.

For gamers in the UK, this means that Fortnite live event start time has been set for 9pm GMT, which won’t be idle for everyone.

But compared to other worldwide release times, this should make it accessible for most in the UK this week.

It should also be noted that the Nexus War finale is expected to run for over five minutes, but won’t be an all-nighter.

Several warnings have also been shared by Epic Games, regarding the Fortnite servers and how best to avoid disappointment.

As you might expect, Fortnite servers are going to be busy, and there’s a chance you could miss out on the big event.

Epic says that everyone should be in Fortnite at least 60 minutes before the Galactus start, with the playlist expected to go live 30 minutes before the event.

A message from Epic Games adds: “Uhhh… is that the Devourer of Worlds on the horizon? That’s not good!

“It was only a matter of time. Galactus is closing in on the Island, and the fate of all Reality lies in the balance. Join the ultimate fight against Galactus in the one-time-only Nexus War finale event on Tuesday, December 1 at 4 PM ET.”

“If you haven’t already downloaded the 14.60 updates, load the game on your preferred device and download today.

“Fortnite’s new integration with Houseparty means you can have live video chat in Fortnite (PC, PS4/PS5) while attending the event.

“We’ve taken measures to ensure more people can attend the event, but we still recommend everyone log into Fortnite at least 60 minutes prior to the event start. The event playlist is expected to go live 30 minutes prior to the start time.

“We’re working with partners to ensure that content creators can share this unforgettable event with their communities. We’ll be updating this post with added details regarding copyright claims prior to the event. Stay tuned.

More news could be shared by Epic Games in the coming 24-hours before the Galactus event goes live.
