If you are a Fortnite fan who has been living under a rock, we must tell you that Chapter 2 Season 4 has officially arrived. The trailer for Season 4 confirmed that the entire Season would be based on a Marvel storyline.

Characters like Iron Man, Wolverine, Mystique, Storm, Dr. Doom, Groot, and She-Hulk have been brought to the Island by Thor, who wants them to unite and fight against the impending Galactus.

Other details also come to light via the Battle Pass trailer. The memories of all the heroes are broken, and they do not quite remember who they were. Further, we see a new POI that is going to act as the headquarters for the Marvel heroes. The base, which is expected to be suspended mid-air on the Fortnite map, features futuristic aircraft and runways. You can watch the Season 4 trailer below.

Thor tells us that they are here to defeat Galactus, the devourer of worlds, as he names the members of his team. Also, we see the little Raccoon from Guardians of the Galaxy, i.e., Rocket running around in the trailer.
