Retepopular game Fortnite is going to do a crossover with Marvel, specifically the Avengers: Infinity War universe. The ‘limited time mashup’ starts May 8 and effectively means that as long as the crossover takes place in every game of Fortnite Battle Royale you can find the Infinity Gauntlet from Thanos. If you find that, your character will change to Thanos and you will also “get all the powers involved”.
Anyway, maybe the forces you get are a bit more subtle (even though that big ‘snap’ at the top of the teaser last on Twitter could not be much clearer) and Thanos can just kick ass in a jar. We will experience it tomorrow because then the temporary event will be available for all platforms where you can play Fortnite Battle Royale.
The reason for the crossover is funny: the brothers Russo, who directed Infinity War, were themselves fans of Fortnite and played the game between editing Infinity War as a break. From there they contacted Epic Games and that co-operation resulted from this. Apparently, it was important for both parties that the collaboration should be authentic, but they are all very satisfied with how temporary mode came out. Hopefully, the players will find that from tomorrow too!
