The Mad Titan himself, Thanos, is headed to Fortnite: Battle Royale in an epic crossover between Marvel and Epic Games.
Starting tomorrow, fans can take part in the new Infinity Gauntlet Limited Time Mashup mode, which sees Thanos become a playable character. The difference between this mode and the normal Battle Royale? This time, players are competing to claim the Infinity Gauntlet. The gauntlet will appear on the map, and whichever player finds and equips the item will turn into Thanos.

Joe and Anthony Russo, directors of Avengers: Infinity War, took breaks while editing the film and would spend time playing video games. As time went on, the brothers wanted to see a crossover between Avengers: Infinity War and Fortnite. After reaching out to Epic Games’ Donald Mustard and seeing his interest, the plan was set and the new game mode was kicked into development.
