After owning earth's mightiest heroes in Avengers: Infinity Wars, Thanos is ready to take over the world of Fortnite. The Mad Titan will be a part of the popular battle royale game in a special limited-time game mode called Infinity Gauntlet.
In the game mode, players can track down the Infinity Gauntlet and become Thanos, and by default — all-powerful. The crossover mode is free for all platforms and will be available for a limited time.
Joe and Anthony Russo, the directors of the Avengers: Infinity Wars, are reportedly big fans of Fortnite and reached out to EPIC games creative director Donald Mustard for a possible crossover. Marvel and EPIC games partnered to get Thanos into the game.
“Over the past few months, while we were editing Infinity War, we’d take breaks to hop on and get in a few games, And then we started thinking, how cool would it be to have some kind of Avengers–Fortnite mashup? So we stalked Donald,” Joe Russo told Entertainment Weekly.
