First Look At Thanos In Fortnite Is Revealed

Avengers: Infinity War broke records worldwide and Fortnite has been doing pretty well itself so it was the natural step for them to team together and for a limited time you can become Thanos in the 'Infinity Gauntlet Limited Time Mashup'.

The super-villain has the Reality Stone in his possession and can cross between all sorts of different realities.

And it's all come about from a bit of good ol' appreciation.

It's because of the mutual admiration for each other's work between the creators of the box office record destroying superhero movie and the madcap battle royale game.

So, as of today you can be dropped onto the map like any other game of Fortnite but this time the Inifinity Gauntlet will be in play, and if you get your hands on it, you turn into Thanos.

What are you waiting for - let the hunt begin.

According to Epic Games, you'll need some serious firepower to take down Thanos. Apparently, only rare, epic and legendary weapons appear in this Limited Time Mashup.

Joe and Anthony Russo, who directed the Marvel flick, are big fans of the game. Likewise, Donald Mustard is also a big fan of Infinity War.

Joe Russo told Entertainment Weekly: "Over the past few months, while we were editing Infinity War, we'd take breaks to hop on and get in a few games.

"And then we started thinking, how cool would it be to have some kind of Avengers-Fortnite mashup? So, we stalked Donald."

All they needed then was the go-ahead from Epic Games and that wasn't hard to get given Donald Mustard's love for the Marvel franchise.

Mustard, who is the worldwide creative director for Epic, said: "Out of the blue, 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."


He continued: "Infinity War blew us away, and the Russos, [Marvel Studios President] Kevin Feige, and the whole team at Marvel have been incredible to work with.

"This kind of opportunity, where you have this mutual respect for someone's work and you're on the same page about doing something cool for fans, is rare and really exciting. We hope players love it."
