Avengers: Infinity War has entered a new lexicon of cultural significance by crossing over into Fortnite: Battle Royale.
According to Entertainment Weekly, Epic Games and Marvel are teaming up for a crossover called the “Infinity Gauntlet Limited Time Mashup.” The new mode will play like any regular battle royale. The same one hundred players will be dropped into the island and fight it out for the coveted Victory Royale.
The difference is that in the battle, the Infinity Gauntlet will appear in the map and whoever manages to find it will turn into the mighty Thanos, wielding all six Infinity Stones to his heart’s content. Does that mean you can kill half of the remaining players with a snap of the fingers? Better yet, does it mean you can bring down an entire moon to wipe out some pesky players? We certainly hope so.
The Avengers: Infinity War and Fornite Infinity Gauntlet mode will be available for a limited time starting May 8. It will come to all platforms, including PC, PS4, Xbox, Mac and iOS.
