Fortnite Adds Stark Industries HQ Today, and Sets the Stage for Galactus

Tony Stark's headquarters have arrived on the Battle Royale map.

Today, Fortnite has added its biggest new addition yet to the current Marvel-themed season. Stark Industries HQ has been added to the Battle Royale island map, as Season 4: Nexus War ramps up.

You can check out the full trailer for Stark Industries HQ just below, which is available in all versions of the game (except Android and iOS) right now. The new Stark Industries location on the map is basically comprised of a few new warehouses, not unlike the Dirty Docks location, except these are all shiny and filled with loot chests.

Elsewhere in the new update, Galactus's forces can be found on the map, as a precursor to the supervillain himself. It looks like we'll be battling robotic foes around different areas of the map, not unlike battling Stark Robots near the Quinjet landing sites, and it's pretty safe to say we'll be earning loot by defeating them, just like we would the Stark Robots.

Epic has been teasing the arrival of Galactus ever since the current season kicked off with the Marvel Nexus War. You can be fairly sure we'll have to team up to take down the supervillain at some point this season, perhaps in a similar vein to the past team mini-raid against the Storm King.

Finally, it seems like a few new superpowers have been added to Fortnite in the update today. You could previously equip Doctor Doom's orbs of death, and Groot's shell-like form as temporary abilities, but now it looks like we'll be able to use Iron Man's chest lazer and Storms, erm, storm.
