New Fortnite update has big changes for Thanos

New Fortnite update has big changes for Thanos

The Infinity Gauntlet mode has arrived in Fortnite Battle Royale, merging the vibrant world of the juggernaut battle royale title and the Marvel Cinematic Universe together for a brief crossover event.

If you fail to get the Infinity Gauntlet, don't worry, The player who is now Thanos will be lit up like a Christmas tree, so every other player and their mum will be tracking them down.

Fortnite's Infinity Gauntlet mode has been live for a few days now, and pretty much the entire time, Epic Games has been fine tuning it behind the scenes.

Check out the trailer below.

Taking into account that the video game has been updated to receive Thanos of Avengers: Infinity War, the appearance of such a tool seems curious and quite appropriate.

Although I do not play Fortnite, I have learned one thing recently about video games. That could change over the coming weeks, but as the mode is launched as it is now, only solo players can participate in this limited time event. Once acquired, players turn into Thanos and can reign absolute hell on other players in the game. He even showed a previous post on his former account proving that the challenges were datamined from the "Fortnite" game files.

Why exactly did we get a Thanos cross-over in Epic Game's Fortnite? This time it's not just going to herald the end of a phase, but an entire era too - characters will come and go, live and die, and well, it's bound to get a little emotional. Specifically, his shield cap decreased from 300 to 200, and his laser damage versus players went down from 15 to 20, although his max health was raised from 700 to 800. There's an Infinity Gauntlet randomly placed on the map, and it's up to you to find it first.

If you're still avoiding spoilers, don't worry - most of this episode is spoiler-free and we clearly mark the point where we're about start discussing the plot.
