Thanos, the wrecker of the world, is coming to Fortnite. There have been a lot of fan-created costume and skin concepts shared in the past, but, this is the real thing. EPIC Games informed via EW that the “Infinity Gauntlet Limited Time  Mashup” will be featured in Fortnite’sBattle Royale mode from today, May 8.

This is going to be a regular Battle Royale experience, but, with one major difference. At any point in the match, the Infinity Gauntlet will appear on the island. You can be assured that all the players will sprint towards the Infinity Gauntlet as soon as it appears because whoever manages to grab it will convert into Thanos. The article mentions that the players would be able to wield all the power that comes with [Thanos],” and the full implication of that statement can only be understood when we see him in action.

Will Infinity Gauntlet allow the player to snap fingers and end the game immediately? Will it just provide a player with a mighty magical weapon with infinite ammunition? Will it offer protection or power to slow down time? Details are yet to emerge.

So what brought this amazing crossover on? The answer is simple: just like all other fans, the Avengers: Infinity War makers, Russo Brothers love Fortnite “Over the past few months, while we were editing Infinity War, we’d take breaks to hop on and get in a few games,” Joe Russo told EW. “And then we started thinking, how cool would it be to have some kind of Avengers–Fortnite mashup? So we stalked [EPIC Games creative director] Donald.”

Donald Mustard was most likely delighted at the thought. “Out of the blue,” he said, “I get this call from Joe. And after a bit of geeking out over each other’s work, we start brainstorming these crazy ideas. It was really important that whatever we did, it had to be super authentic to both Fortnite and the Avengers: Infinity War and something that fans of both would be excited about. About an hour later, we had the bones of this awesome idea for a limited time gameplay mode, and almost immediately our team got started.”

Beginning May 8, no matter where you play it, the Infinity Gauntlet mode will be available to all Fortnite players. There is no idea how long will this go on, so our advice is, “get in while you can!”
