Fortnite players can now view Galactus' distant approach within the game, and dataminers have uncovered some assets hinting at his imminent arrival.

This month is a busy one for Epic Games. Recent leaks have revealed some upcoming Halloween-themed cosmetics. Fortnite's Nexus War, the Marvel-themed narrative composing this season, also approaches its conclusion. Although more heroes, like Daredevil, are still joining the fray, Fortnite Season 4 wraps up in just a few weeks.

The season's conclusion presumably involves a showdown with Galactus. After this week's V14.30 update, a ton of Galactus-related content has been discovered within the game.

The video above shows that Galactus approaching the map is visible in the sky within the game. Not only is Galactus appearing in the game, but Fortnite leakers are finding other Galactus content in the game's files.

Dataminer iFireMonkey has revealed an image, codenamed "Distant Object 2," that appears to show what players can expect to see as Galactus arrival looms closer. This image looks quite similar to the image of Galactus approaching that was shown in the original Nexus War trailer. Another Fortnite leaker, Lucas7yoshi, has also discovered some Galactus assets that suggest the villain will appear as a hologram over the holotable.

Fortnite's Marvel Knockout Super Series begins Wednesday, Oct. 14.
