Fortnite’s Avengers Infinity War promo event is live today
Yesterday, Epic teased a Marvel Avengers Infinity War promo in Fortnite, and it wasn’t super clear who was getting the better end of that partnership. It’s live today, and I think the answer is… the players? Your goal is basically to beat down Thanos.
“Early in the match, a meteor will land in the storm safe zone, delivering the Infinity Gauntlet. Any player who uses the Infinity Gauntlet will transform into Thanos. Stats are recorded for this LTM and can be found in the Solo tab. If Thanos is eliminated, the Gauntlet will fall to the ground, free for the taking. If it sits unused for too long, it will disappear until another meteor appears. Last player standing will be the victor!”
Does any of this make a lick of sense? Not really, but yay video game crossovers.
“This collaboration started as a simple phone conversation between Epic and Marvel over a mutual appreciation for Fortnite and Avengers,” Epic writes. “We worked closely over the following weeks to bring these two worlds together and landed on the Limited Time Mashup, Infinity Gauntlet. When we saw the movie last weekend, which was incredible, we were even more excited.”
PvE players, there’s naught but bug fixes for you, plus a hacksaw.
