In a matchup that we never saw coming, Fortnite and Marvel are teaming up to bring Thanos to Epic’s Fortnite Battle Royale. No, we’re not joking. It’s completely real.
Starting today there’ll be a new limited-time event in Fortnite called the Infinity Gauntlet Limited Time Mashup. It’ll play out like any ordinary game of Fortnite, except that the Infinity Gauntlet will be left somewhere on the map for players to find. Whichever lucky player does find the Infinity Gauntlet will be transformed into Thanos himself. If you’ve not seen Avengers: Infinity War yet, this is a spoiler warning. Spoiler now!
Those who get to play as Thanos will be able to wield the destructive power of the Infinity Gauntlet and its fancy little magic stones. The same on that the big purple dude used to kill off half of Marvel’s most popular movie characters. Spoiler over!
It should be noted that this is a limited time event, so if you want to get in on the action you should start as soon as possible. We’ve no idea how long the mashup will last and there’s no official word just yet.
