After cleaning out half the Avengers, Thanos arrives to take over Fortnite

Posted May 11, 2018

Players can become Thanos in Fortnite by finding the Infinity Gauntlet which crashes into the ground at the beginning of the game.

Since Avengers: Infinity War villain Thanos was recently added to Fortnite at the start of the hit video game's Season 4, it was only a matter of time before Fortnite fans inserted the galactic super villain into popular scenes from the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Epic would only confirm the event through a tweet with few details, but a report from Entertainment Weekly said Fortnite will feature a special version of its Battle Royale mode where players can wield the Infinity Gauntlet and turn into Thanos.

With early access of Fortnite that released September of a year ago, the game rivaled a similar game PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds (PUBG) by December, which brought home "Best Multiplayer Game" at the 2017 Game Awards.

Epic Games creative director Donald Mustard got a call from Joe, and they started "brainstorming these insane ideas". It was a clever crossover that directors Joe and Anthony Russo began considering during the editing phase of Infinity War. The crossover mode is free for all platforms and will be available for a limited time. "So we stalked Donald". Of course, while there are other players and you're all fighting to be the last one standing, taking down Thanos should be your main priority, and as a result, you're probably wondering where to find Thanos.
