You’ve Seen Thanos in Avengers: Infinity War, Now Play as Thanos in Fortnite

Stay on target

If you asked me to make up a news story that most reflected #brands and #content right now in the year of our lord in 2018, I couldn’t have come up with something better than what Marvel and Epic Games just actually announced. Fresh off of wreaking havoc in the Marvel Cinematic Universe in Avengers: Infinity War, The Mad Titan Thanos is turning his attention to another massive world that’s eating up all of the money and kids’ attention. Thanos is coming to Fortnite.

As revealed in Entertainment Weekly, soon players will be able to play as Thanos in the massively popular Battle Royale game for PC, consoles, and mobile. And by soon we mean soon. The free limited crossover event starts on May 8.

So how does Thanos work in Fortnite without just completely breaking the game? The “Infinity Gauntlet Limited Time Mashup” mode sounds pretty clever actually. Players begin in a standard game of Fortnite Battle Royale, taking on 99 other players until only they remain. But now in addition to all of the guns and resources on the map, there’s a chance you can find the all-powerful Infinity Gauntlet and equip it to transform into purple Josh Brolin.

The Gauntlet gives you access to the powers of the Infinity Stones, surely granting crazy new ways of engaging with Fortnite’s combat and construction. Teleport with the Mind Stone? Shoot crazy lasers with the Power Stone? Rearrange buildings (or summon Drake!) with the Reality Stone? Snap your fingers to wipe out half of the other remaining players? It won’t be long until we see just how terrifying Thanos will be in Fortnite, which just began a more superheroic fourth season.

Seeing as they are two of the biggest, most profitable, and most current things in pop culture right now, it’s surprising but not too surprising to see Marvel and Fortnite team up. Apparently Infinity War directors Joe and Anthony Russo are even fans of the game and would play while filming. They made the initial contact with Epic about the potential mashup.

Thanos and the Infinity Gauntlet come to Fortnite for free on May 8. Maybe this event will give us clues about next summer’s Avengers 4 to tide us over during this endless wait. Avengers Four(tnite)?
