Thanos is heading to Fortnite to bring balance to battle royales

It seems the Mad Titan can go wherever he wants. Epic Games and Marvel have teamed up for a crossover event that should set the internet on fire for a while as Thanos heads to Fortnite for a limited time event.

Starting today (May 8) a limited mode called “Infinity Gauntlet Limited Time Mashup” will be available for Battle Royale players. This starts a standard game except the Infinity Gauntlet is out on the map somewhere, with all six Infinity Stones locked and waiting. Get the gauntlet and you transform into Thanos and go to town with all of his powers.

Avengers: Infinity War co-directors Joe and Anthony Russo are fans of Fortnite, often taking breaks from editing the movie to play a match or two. You can read the full interview here, but be careful if you haven’t watched the movie yet.

If it has the letters RPG in it, I am there. Still battling with balancing trying to play every single game that grabs my interest, getting 100% in a JRPG, and devoting time to my second home in Azeroth.
