Thanos Comes To Fortnite In Avengers: Infinity War Crossover Mode


As if Fortnite: Battle Royale weren’t already popular enough, developer Epic Games has teamed up with Marvel for a crossover event centered around the year’s biggest movie, Avengers: Infinity War. To tie in with Season 4’s moviemaking theme, the villain of Marvel’s superhero blockbuster, Thanos, will make a surprise appearance in the free-to-play battle royale game on PS4, Xbox One, PC, and iOS (via Entertainment Weekly). Just don’t expect any skins.

The crossover takes the form of a limited-time event called the Infinity Gauntlet Mashup, which kicks off tomorrow, May 8. Like a typical game of Battle Royale, it pits 100 players against each other in a fight to be the last one standing, with one significant wrinkle: the Infinity Gauntlet will appear as a weapon.
