Thanos coming to Fortnite Battle Royale during Infinity Gauntlet Event

Yes, you read the title correctly. This isn’t someone on YouTube using fake thumbnails as clickbait, or even speculation on a Reddit conspiracy thread.

Epic Games has announced a limited time crossover event with Avengers: Infinity War. They’re dubbing the event the “Infinity Gauntlet Limited Time Mashup.”

Obtain the Gauntlet, transform into Thanos, win the game!

Fortnite addicts have nothing to worry about — the party bus is still intact and the objective hasn’t changed; be the last player standing after everything is said and done. If that wasn’t hard enough already, this event has the Infinity Gauntlet containing all six Infinity Stones in play as a potential pick up. Players who pick up and equip the Infinity Gauntlet will transform into Thanos, having all of his powers at their disposal.

The possibilities are endless with this crossover. Gauntlet wielders will have infinite power. Will we see the famous finger snap wiping half of the players out? Maybe players will have access to slow-mo and faster building abilities. Only Epic knows, and thankfully we’ll find out tomorrow, May 8th. This update will hit the servers for free on all platforms (PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Windows PC, Mac, and iOS).

Once a proud owner of a (now dead) semi-popular YouTube channel called GamersLeak, Ignacio (aka. Tazz) has set out on a journey to assemble the seven dragon balls to wish it back. Little did he know that it would come back with a different name! Tazz is back and he’s bringing the hot takes to our Lobby; did we mention that he’s little more ambitious now?
