In case you missed it, Fortnite and the Avengers has teamed up once again for another limited time game mode.
Similar to last year’s event, players can find the Infinity Gauntlet on the map and the lucky person to find it can equip it and become Thanos in-game. Along with becoming Thanos, the player can also “wield all the powers that come with him”.
However, this time, players won’t be powerless when facing Thanos. Players will have access to the Avengers’ weapons namely; Iron Man’s Repulsors, Captain America’s Shield, Hawkeye’s Bow and Thor’s Stormbreaker. Thanos himself won’t be alone as well, he will be joined by Chitauri warriors, which are equipped with a blaster, a more powerful charge-up attack, and a jetpack with unlimited fuel.
The new game mode seperates players into two groups of 20. The first group represents the “Good Guys” and the second group represents the Chitauri and Thanos. Players can ge the Avenger Weapons by following the map given. Meanwhile, the first Chitauri player to touch one of the six Infinity Stones that lands on the map will transform into Thanos.
Fortnite players can use Iron Man’s Repulsors to shoot enemies, jump high in the sky and also hover around the map. Captain America’s shield can be used to block enemy attacks and it can also be thrown as a projectile. Hawkeye’s bow can shoot Fire Explosive Arrows and can also serve as a grappling hook. Lastly, Thor’s Stormbreaker can be used to leap towards a target, it can also be thrown and swung.
This is a truly fun crossover between the most popular game around and the most successful Movie franchise in the last decade. A match made in Geek Heaven.
