Entertainment Weekly and Epic Games broke the news that Thanos and his precious Infinity Gauntlet will be heading towards Fortnite! Yes, Avengers: Infinity War’s big baddie will be appearing in Fortnite’s Battle Royale mode for a limited time, starting today, 8th May 2018.
This event is called the “Infinity Gauntlet Limited Time Mashup” and the game mode’s rules remains the same (100 players fight to be the last one standing) except for one thing: the Infinity Gauntlet. This powerful weapon will be featured in the map and whoever finds it and equips it will wield its power and transform into the Mad Titan himself. ‘Overpowered’ is clearly an understatement when it comes to Thanos being in Fortnite.
According to Entertainment Weekly, Avengers: Infinity War co-directors Joe and Anthony Russo are Fortnite fans:
“Over the past few months, while we were editing Infinity War, we’d take breaks to hop on and get in a few games,” Joe exclusively told EW. “And then we started thinking, how cool would it be to have some kind of Avengers–Fortnite mashup? So we stalked Donald (Epic Games’ worldwide creative director).”
The trio met together to brainstorm “crazy ideas” that could satisfy fans of both franchises, and voila, magic happens and the rest is history!
We are only nearing the halfway point of 2018 but we already have so many gaming crossovers! Here are some recent ones:
Since none of us are Doctor Strange, I guess we did not see any of these crossovers coming… Though which of these are you most excited about?
