Fortnite is getting a limited time event that will be a collaboration with Marvel featuring Thanos from Avengers: Infinity War. The interesting part of this collaboration is that there are no skins or costumes being added here, and instead it is a simple a time limited event that is the same 100 person battle royale mode but with a twist.
Starting tomorrow, players who have Fortnite Battle Royale can play as Thanos in a new time limited event featuring the same 100 person Battle Royale mode. This time, the map will feature a hidden Infinity Gauntlet and those who will be able to find it will transform into Thanos with all of the six Infinity Stones in his possession. It remains to be seen what kind of powers he will be able to use with the Infinity Gauntlet and whether he can be killed.
The official promotional image does confirm that this will be basically a character model of Thanos in the Fortnite engine so it is likely going to be a transformation for the lucky player who manages to get his hands on the Infinity Gauntlet before anyone else.
As for any other collaborations or costumes for other Marvel’s Avengers superheroes, Epic Games has confirmed on reddit that they don’t have any plans for it.
