The Fortnite Galactus event's date has officially been confirmed, both on Twitter and via an in-game countdown: the season-ending event will begin Tuesday, Dec. 1 at 4 p.m. ET.

Fortnite Galactus Event Date : When Does the Fortnite Galactus Event Start?

The start time Epic Games announced is slightly out of step with the in-game counter, which says the event will begin 10 minutes later.

The date for the event indicates it will take place around a week after fans expected Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 4 to end. Some are interpreting this to mean the season will be extended for a week, but without official word from Epic Games, it's hard to say for sure.

The Fortnite Galactus event should see the Devourer of Worlds himself arrive in the Fortnite world, where the many Marvel heroes running around the island will likely attempt to fight him off and save the planet.
