In a time where I feel that every human on earth with a pulse is playing Fortnite, apparently it’s reach has now transcended time and space.
In a reveal post on Entertainment Weekly, it was announced that the Mad Titan is coming to Fortnite: Battle Royale. It’s a headline that you’d expect to see around April 1st, but incredibly enough it’s not only true, but sounds damn awesome.
100 people will descend into the world of Fortnite, and in that landscape the very Infinity Gauntlet that gives Thanos control over time and space is waiting to be found. Whoever finds and equips the golden godfist, will transform into Thanos himself – wielding all the power that comes with him.
Amazingly, this cosmic-level mash up was actually pitched by the Russo Brothers, the directors of the film currently slaying movie theatres across the globe. In the downtime of making Infinity War, they’d unwind with some rounds of Fortnite – so you just may have killed the digital selves of Marvels masterpiece makers. They touched base with the creative director of Epic Games, and the rest is now crossover history.
The “Infinity Gauntlet” mode will be available for free across all Battle Royale-friendly platforms (i.e. PS4, Xbox, PC, Mac, and iOS) this May 8th.
I better get practicing, I’m fairly sure my grandmother is better at Fortnite than I am.
