As if Fortnite weren’t already one of the most talked-about games on the market, Epic Games has teamed up with Marvel to put out an Infinity Gauntlet mode mashing up the worlds of the sandbox survival title and Avengers: Infinity War. Now, the developers behind the Battle Royale sensation have released a brief, albeit thrilling new trailer to promote the Limited Time Mode that shows off Thanos in action.
As seen below in Fortnite‘s Infinity Gauntlet mode trailer, players of the sandbox survival title can get a sense of what it’s like to wield the iconic glove from the Marvel Cinematic Universe, as a lone soldier grabs and equips the item, turning him into Thanos. Once the character has morphed into the Mad Titan, he is immediately greeted with gunfire, so he responds by using his abilities – that is, his Leap and Smash attack in combination – that practically wipes out all comers.
While it’s safe to say that there have already been myriad Fortnite fans who have dived into the Infinity Gauntlet mode since its release, many have also expressed disappointment at the fact that Epic Games didn’t use the LTM as an event to unveil any Avengers-like skins. After all, who better than to do battle with Thanos than Marvel’s greatest heroes? However, this doesn’t necessarily mean that Epic won’t work with the comic book company in the future for such a venture.
All things considered, Fortnite‘s addition of the Infinity Gauntlet mode is without a doubt a signifier of the game being a full-blown phenomenon, as Avengers: Infinity War is currently one of, if not the the biggest film on the planet. Surely, the overlap of both Fortnite and the Marvel Cinematic Universe will lead to the title having many more promotional crossover outings such as this later on down the line, for even the publishing giant Activision Blizzard has acknowledged that the game is a force to be reckoned with.
Fortnite is available now in early access for iOS, PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
