Forntite Chapter 2, Season 4 is drawing to an end, but we’re set to have one final spectacular event to tune into, with Galactus set to arrive on the island for what is sure to be an explosive finale to the superhero-themed season.

With Epic Games calling this “the biggest event” in the game’s history, there’s sure to be some major ramifications from this epic battle, so you definitely won’t want to miss any of the spectacular event when things kick off on December 1.

When does Nexus War start?

The good news is that Epic Games have already confirmed when the event will start, with the Nexus War kicking off at 4PM ET / 1PM EST / 9PM GMT / 8AM AEDT.

It’s expected that there will be some major server congestion as players log in to view it in real-time, so it could be worth logging in early to make sure you can get into a match, with many suggesting that you may need to log in over an hour early to ensure you get into the servers.

Thankfully, the mods at the r/FortniteBR subreddit have created this handy graphic that lists all the release times for the event worldwide.

Additionally, if you want a more personal experience and want to hang out with others, you can do so in the official Fortnite Discord server.
