The Galactus event
Epic Games closed its fourth season with a final event that, how could it be otherwise, was a success. And not only because of the execution but also because of the repercussion that it will have for a few days. Something completely logical since the figures obtained were huge and set the bar very high for others who will arrive in the future. But, if you haven’t followed it and are curious to know what exactly happened, this is what you missed from the Galactus event.
To begin with, you should know that the fourth season of Fortnite has been themed by Marvel characters. Therefore, in this closing one could not be missing and the chosen one was Galactus. The super villain appeared on the island and after shouting “Be careful, I’m hungry” began to move towards it slowly, but without pause in order to destroy it.
So everyone who was able to access the event had to join forces to stop it before it finished with her. How they did it was again something in the purest Fortnite style. As if it were a gigantic arcade, the players started shooting at it while driving the famous battle bus loaded to the top of explosives to him.
Once they managed to make Galactus’ main course the bus, the Marvel villain ended up exploding and his plan was truncated. That allowed the island of Fortnite, at least apparently, to remain intact.
New record figure

The Galactus event within Fortnite has become the largest to date that has taken place within the game from Epic Games. And that is somewhat difficult to say if you consider that the previous ones, such as the Travis Scott concert or the Marshmello show achieved figures of 12.3 and 10.7 million players.
Even so, both have been surpassed: 15.3 million players gathered together with Galactus at the end of the season. A figure that sounds like real madness and that could have been higher if the controversy between Epic Games and Apple had not made many iPhone and iPad users stay out.
And beware, to those more than fifteen million players we must add the more than 3.4 million who saw the event through the YouTube and Twitch live streams.
Going for Season 5: Zero Point
