Today, May 8, a limited-time event begins in Fortnight Battle Royale, bringing a huge Marvel character into the game. Thanos from Avengers: Infinity War will star in a special crossover mode in Fortnight Battle Royale: Infinity Gauntlet Limited Time Mashup.
According to Entertainment Weekly, The Infinity War-themed mode will modify the standard Battle Royale formula. Players can discover the Infinity Gauntlet on the map, and whichever player retrieves will be able to equip and become Thanos in-game.
Right now, this may be the hugest crossover for two of the biggest franchises at the moment. There aren’t any official licensed Avengers games out (yet!), so this is as close as fans can get to playing around with Marvel’s latest box office hit.
There is no word from Epic Games on the length of the Fortnite Battle Royale and Avengers: Infinity War event, but expect it to release early on May 8.
For those Avengers fans who haven’t taken a chance on Fortnite yet, Battle Royale is available on iOS, Mac, PlayStation 4, Windows PC, and Xbox One for free.
Avengers: Infinity War is now playing in theaters.
