Fortnite To Add Spiderman, Hulk, Ant-Man, and Captain Marvel To The Game

Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 4 moves forward with future plans to add more Marvel heroes to the game. Apart from the heroes that are already present in the game it seems Fortnite plans to add other famous characters such as Spiderman, Hulk, Ant-Man, and Captain Marvel to the game.

According to numerous leaks, data-miners have found game files linked to these characters. These files point towards the characters abilities being added to the game for players to use. We have already seen Groot and Doctor Doom’s ability being added to the game. Additionally, It also seems that a Black Panther skin as well as his abilities are being added to the game in the near future.


SPIDERMAN

Concept

There seems to be a Season 4 achievement with Spiderman logo on it and we might see him in the item shop later down the line. The leak also indicated that Spider-Man and his enemy Carnage could be added to the game at a later date.


HULK

Concept

In addition to She-Hulk it seems Fortnite is planning to add Hulk to the Season 4 roster one way or another. Dataminers have found powers that are jump smashing and punching linked to the male version of Hulk.


CAPTAIN MARVEL

Concept

According to data miners there seems to be an upcoming Fireball ability from a character whose name starts with ‘C’. One can easily guess that to be Carol Danvers aka Captain Marvel. However, it can be the human torch which will be equally exciting.


ANT-MAN

In-game

A Ant-Man theme point of interest is making its way to the game soon but for now there’s no word on abilities and skins.

Fortnite Immortalizes Chadwick Boseman Through a Black Panther Memorial

It has been a few days since the tragic death of Chadwick Boseman who was not only known for his iconic role as T’Challa in the MCU but also for being an inspiration to thousands of young men and women. In honor of his memory Fortnite has added an in-game memorial of Black Panther where players can go pay their respects.

The Monument in question seems to have been planned for future release for the ongoing Fortnite x Marvel crossover. However, due to this untimely death, Epic must have made sure to release it as soon as possible. The new monument can be found west of the Misty Meadows part of the map.

Fortnite fan skin concept

There also seems to be future plans of releasing a Black Panther skin in-game in the near future. However, this matter should be handled with care on Epic Game’s side. One great idea that seems to be making its rounds online is selling the skin in-game, with all the proceeds going to charity or cancer research.

Epic Games is also planning to add Black Panther signature abilities to the game for players to use as part of its Fortnite x Marvel crossover. The first ability is ‘Kinetic Absorption’ which allows users to take only a portion of the damage dealt and increases their movement. The second ability is called ‘Whirlwind Blast’ however not much is known about this except it is an offensive one and judging by its name it can be similar to the Black Panther’s kinetic discharge in the MCU.

In the end, its nice to how much inspiration and change Chadwick Boseman has left in his wake and me along with million others will remember him as a great human being.

Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 4: Marvel’s Nexus War

Fortnite has really one upped itself by releasing a whole season worth of Marvel content in-game. The Chapter 2 Season 4 of Fortnite brings with it a whole lot of your favorite Marvel heroes and villains to the game. This season’s story line will mainly focus on Thor and Galactus but joining them are other members of the Marvel Comics such as Iron Man, Wolverine, Doctor Doom, Groot, She-Hulk, Mystique, and Storm.


New Locations

The Battle Royale map has also gone through some changes such as the spawn island being replaced by the ‘Helicarrier’ and several Quinjet landing pads being added throughout the map. There’s also the new Stark supply drones that surround these Quinjet landing sites. Players can shoot these down for a delivery of powerful weapons and hero abilities.

A mini-boss battle has also been added to the game to the location known as Doom’s Domain. Here you can battle the infamous villain himself and if you manage to take him down you’ll be able to claim his Plasma Gauntlets that never run out of ammo.


Hero Abilities and New Weapon

Players will also be able to wield the powers of all the Marvel characters featured in this update. Currently, there are only two powers that are available in-game (Groot and Doctor Doom) with more coming in as the season goes on.

A new rifle is also being added to the game, an uncommon weapon ‘Stark Industries Energy Rifle’ that transforms based on how you aim which you can get by fighting Stark robots at the crashed Quinjet sites.


Battle Pass

This season’s battle pass gives you access to skins from all of the Marvel characters featured in this update. These skins will also have a special “Awakening” challenges tied to them that unlock special emotes such as wielding Thor’s hammer or transforming Tony Stark into Iron Man. These emotes are built in to the skin and the coolest one by far is the Iron Man suit up emote which makes my inner geek swirl. 

These skins unlock as you progress through the Battle Pass :-

Thor — Tier 1

She-Hulk— Tier 22

Groot — Tier 38

Storm — Tier 53

Doctor Doom — Tier 67

Mystique — Tier 80

Tony Stark — Tier 93

Iron Man — Tier 100

Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 4: Upcoming Marvel Crossover?

The next season of Fortnite is just around the corner and players are wondering what surprises does Epic Games have in store for them. Well strap in cause season 4 takes it up a notch with new map changes, battle pass, Thor vs Galactus event, in-game Marvel comic, and also Thor and Wolverine skins.

Season 4 is expected to arrive by August 27 or August 28, that is if there’s no delay like the previous seasons.


Thor vs Galactus Event

In Fortnite when a season ends it is usually paired with a big in-game event and it seems that Epic has big plans for this end of the season. For those wondering what it could be it might have something to do with the recent leaks. There have been numerous leaks related to Thor, Galactus and the Bifrost rainbow bridge. What this means is that, Epic is most likely planning to do a crossover event with Marvel.

This isn’t the first time that epic has done something like this as they have previously worked with Marvel, DC, Star Wars to hold several in-game events.

However, this event can also be something to planned to showcase later down the line when season 4 is half-way done. Either way this is going to be an astronomical event for every Marvel fan.


New Skins

Fortnite data miner HypeX, who tends to be reliable, has stated that, “Epic is planning to make a Wolverine skin & Wolverine Claws pickaxe, he might be the season 4 secret skin or just an item shop skin.” He further added that, “this is from a very trusted source.”

HypeX also pointed out that the latest Fortnite skin ‘Relaxed fit Jonesy” resembles Fat Thor and that Epic is teasing the upcoming event. Of course it can also be speculated that Fornite is planning to add Thor as a skin.


In-Game Comic

Keeping up with the Marvel theme it seems Epic is planning on releasing an in-game comic possibly tied to the season 4 battle pass. Several people have reported seeing a brief glimpse of a comic book page when playing on consoles. The comic book in question features Thor on the page with his mighty hammer Mjölnir.


New Map Changes

Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 1 introduced players to a new map entirely but at the start of Season 3 half of the map was flooded. This resulted in some parts of the map being underwater and added floating cities.

In the new season it can be expected that the map will change considerably, possibly from an aftermath of a fight between Thor and Galactus. It might have also something to do with giant ‘Hightower’ rift that was previously revealed by dataminers.

Regardless the Marvel fan in me can hardly contain itself and is patiently waiting for the next season to arrive.

Fortnite Removed From Apple And Google App Stores

Fortnite has been removed from Apple and Google app stores due to its recent update violating store policies. The update featured an option for users to buy Fortnite’s currency V-bucks at a 20 percent discount directly from Epic Games. According to Apple and Google this move violated the app store policies as both stores take a 30 percent share from in-app revenue purchases in games and the new update would have bypassed that.

Apple was the first to take action by removing the app from its app store followed by google. The gaming app is no longer available for iPhone users but android users can still download the app from Epic Games Store or from Samsung Galaxy store for Samsung devices. Previously, Apple had also refused to add game streaming services like Xbox’s Xcloud, Google’s Stadia and Facebook Gaming.

Fortnite official youtube channel also released a video similar to an Apple’s iconic 1984 commercial with #FreeFortnite at the very end. The video is apparently a call out to all of the gaming community to unite and support Epic Games in their fight against Apple. The game developer has always been against such policies since Fortnite’s launch on smartphones.

Immediately after the removal of the app Epic filed a lawsuit against Google and Apple calling their practices unfair and anti competitive. The lawsuit stated, “Epic does not seek monetary compensation from this Court for the injuries it has suffered. Epic likewise does not seek a side deal or favorable treatment from Google for itself. Instead, Epic seeks injunctive relief that would deliver Google’s broken promise: an open, competitive Android ecosystem for all users and industry participants. Such injunctive relief is sorely needed.”

Epic claims that Google forced phone manufacturer OnePlus to break off a deal that would have seen a special Fortnite launcher preinstalled on OnePlus phones and also demanded that another Android phonemaker, LG to abandon any plans to do the same.

Google in an official statement has stated, “while Fortnite remains available on Android, we can no longer make it available on Play because it violates our policies.” The tech giant said it welcomes the opportunity to continue discussions with Epic and bring Fortnite back to Google Play.

Apple also issued a statement that said, “Epic Games took the unfortunate step of violating the App Store guidelines that are applied equally to every developer and designed to keep the store safe for our users. As a result, their Fortnite app has been removed from the store. Epic enabled a feature in its app which was not reviewed or approved by Apple, and they did so with the express intent of violating the App Store guidelines regarding in-app payments that apply to every developer who sells digital goods or services.”

However, Apple did state that it will make every effort to work with Epic to resolve these violations so they can return Fortnite to the App Store.

Ninja Returns To Twitch After One Year

The prodigal son finally returns after a year-long absence. Ninja, who was formerly the most popular streamer on the platform has finally returned to Twitch after 1 whole year. Though, it may be premature to say that he is here to stay.

Ninja started the stream playing some Fortnite and then went on to play Call of Duty Warzone with Dr Lupo. The stream pulled in about 100,000 viewers with 60,000 concurrent watchers at one point, making it a triumphant return. Previously he also did a stream back on Youtube fueling rumours about him cutting a deal with the platform to stream exclusively which were eventually shot down. It seems both Ninja and Shroud who signed the exclusivity deal were in talks with different platforms to cut out a new deal.

Ninja had previously signed a $50 million deal to stream exclusively on Microsoft’s Mixer back in August 2019, resulting in him leaving Twitch. Unfortunately, Microsoft announced that Mixer would close earlier this summer and transfer its services to Facebook Gaming. This in turn led to a lot of speculation as to which platform would ninja stream for now.

It was also reported that Facebook Gaming had offered both Ninja and Shroud double of their original mixer deal to stay on but both of them turned down the offer. Ninja apparently made $30 million from the buyout whereas Shroud also made $10 million.

Speaking of Shroud, it seems the big name streamer has something in store for his fans as he has recently dropped some cryptic and secret messages in his recent posts leaving many wondering what his next move is gonna be.

Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 1 Trailer Leaked!

Fortnite “ended” more than24 hours ago and while the world is currently staring intently at a black hole, the data miners have been at it and have managed to get their hands on the next trailer for the game.

This trailer officially announces Fortnite Chapter 2, the next direction in the Fortnite Battle Royale mode. As seen from the trailer they’ve made some changes to the game.

You’ve got boats. Yup, boats. You can ride them, get your team on it and have a full-on action movie-style gunfight on them. Or if you’re more of a pacifist, you can go fishing. Survival is stressful and there’s nothing more stress-busting then fishing away from your troubles as you crack open a cold one with the bois/girls.

And with the new chapter comes a new Season. Season 1 will come with a battle pass that has various ways to level up. Including getting kills, collecting material and finding loot.

You’ve got new rewards, a pogo stick so you can hop around the map with your friends and so many more costumes and cosmetics that if you have an impressionable child playing the game, you better hide yo’ cards.

The most interesting new features seem to be the ability to carry downed players on your shoulders in a fireman carry. However, you won’t be able to use any weapons when you’re carrying a teammate.

We’re still waiting on the official announcement to see all the various changes so hopefully, we shouldn’t be waiting too long and will get more information in the next day or two.
