Just when you thought Avengers: Infinity War was the biggest crossover of all time, Marvel decided to go one step further, partnering with Epic Games to bring Thanos into the world of Fortnite.
Starting May 8, the Infinity Gauntlet Limited Time Mashup game mode will see the addition of the Infinity Gauntlet to the 100 player battle royale. The first player to find the gauntlet will turn into Thanos giving them a massive advantage.
Infinity War directors Joe and Anthony Russo are massive 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."
Donald Mustard is the worldwide creative director of Epic Games.
"Out of the blue, I get this call from Joe. And after a bit of geeking out over each other's work, we start brainstorming these crazy ideas," Mustard recalled. "It was really important that whatever we did, it had to be super authentic to both Fortnite and the Avengers: Infinity War, and something that fans of both would be excited about. About an hour later, we had the bones of this awesome idea for a limited time gameplay mode, and almost immediately our team got started."
This partnership is a match made in heaven as both Fortnite and the standard Marvel supermegacrossover event see deaths on an unprecedented scale before quickly resurrecting everyone that died like it never happened.
