I know what you are thinking, and no, this isn’t an announcement about a community mod. According to an exclusive report from Entertainment Weekly, Fortnite will feature an official, limited time event featuring Thanos and the Infinity Gauntlet! The event starts tomorrow, May 8th!
This limited time mode will feature your typical Battle Royale features, except for one big exception. Players have the chance to find the Infinity Gauntlet somewhere on the map. Once a player finds it, he or she will turn into Thanos and, according to the article, have all the power that comes with him.
According to the article, directors Joe and Anthony Russo (who directed Infinity War) are big fans of the game and wanted to do a mashup.
This mode is free across all platforms, but no word on how long it will last. I am very excited to see how this will play out. What do you think of the mashup? Would you want to see other franchises team up with Fortnite? Let us know in the comments!
