Epic Games is teaming up with Marvel for mash-up between Fortnite and Avengers Infinity War. The developers of Fortnite confirm that the promotion begins tomorrow. This mash-up is apparently going to change the standard Battle Royale gameplay into something quite different.
The core gameplay will remain the same in Fortnite: Battle Royale. The main difference will be that the Infinity Gauntlet can be discovered each match by one lucky player. Finding the Infinity Gauntlet will transform that player into Thanos, granting them unique powers.
Just what those powers are, is anyone’s guess.
The Fortnite X Avengers mash-up is set to begin on May 8th on Xbox One, PS4, PC, and mobile. The promotion will run for a limited time, but Epic has not revealed how long it will run for.
Fortnite recently moved into Season 4 for the early access title. The most recent update changed the Battle Royale map significantly, with the Dusty Depot becoming the Dusty Divot following the landfall of a giant meteor. In its wake the meteor also introduced game changing pop rocks that allow players to jump with lower gravity resistance.
Epic Games also recently added a bunch of new skins to unlock and challenges to complete in the Season 4 Battle Pass.
