Thanos Coming To Fortnite In A Limited-Time Event

Starting tomorrow (May 8), Thanos from Avengers: Infinity War is coming to Epic's Fortnite in a limited-time crossover event where you could wield the Infinity Gauntlet.

The event plays out like a normal Battle Royale session, with the difference being that the Infinity Gauntlet, with all the Infinity Stones, is available for whomever finds it.

The crossover is available for free across all platforms, but there are no further details such as when it ends as of the time of this writing.

According to Entertainment Weekly, the whole endeavor came about due to the movie's directors, Joe and Anthony Russo, being fans of the game.

"Over the past few months, while we were editing Infinity War, we'd take breaks to on and get in a few games," said Joe Russo. "And then we started thinking, 'How cool would it be to have some kind of Avengers-Fortnite mashup.'"
