Preparation for Venom Cup

Epic Games unveiled its fourth and final Marvel character-specific tournament, named the Venom Cup. Spider-Man’s famous arch-nemesis will make his grand entrance into Fortnite beginning this week. Refer to our recent article about the Venom Cup, where we cover all of its necessary details. Also, here is a video of the Venom skin in action, thanks to HYPEX on Twitter.

Venom Ability Now In-Game

Twitter user Redstorm312 leaked that Venom’s ability is now in Fortnite: Battle Royale mode. Named Venom’s Smash & Grab, this new Mythic superpower throws a massive arm with a claw, pulling enemies toward the user, dealing 60 damage to opponents and 5,000 to structures. Be sure to drop in on the Marvel Quinjet locations to try Venom’s Smash & Grab for yourself!

Live Event Title: Devourer of Worlds

Fortnite data miner iFireMonkey got the scoop on this season’s ending event. The Galactus live event, titled Devourer of Worlds, will resolve the Marvel supervillain’s storyline flying toward the Fortnite map all season long. We will forego the major leaks merely for the sake of surprise.

Competitive Player/Content Creator Skin Packs

One of the more exciting leaks to come out of 14.60 revealed that pro player Benjyfishy and content creator NickEh30 would have their skin bundles. These packs come equipped with a character cosmetic, back bling, glider, wrap and harvesting tool. Many associate the Siren skin with Benjy and the Alpine Ace skin with NickEh30. Perhaps Fortnite will collaborate with even more players in the future. Here are some other skins that also leaked from this patch.

Additionally, players will soon see a Creative Limited Time Mode (LTM), which promises to cycle through a playlist of popular community-made games. Game modes will change regularly in Creative LTM.

Face-to-Face Chat with Teammates

Video chatting with teammates is no longer a thing of the past. Fortnite is developing a new way to play with its partner application, Houseparty. There aren’t many details on this feature, so stay tuned to learn more about how it will work.
