Earlier this week teasers started being shared alluding to a new Fortnite crossover with the MCU, this time for Endgame.
With the movie finally out in most countries today, the event has been revealed and will see players taking on Thanos who is being backed up with the Chitauri (the alien grunts from the first Avengers movie).
Thanos is searching for the six infinity stones on the island that the players are having their battle royale on, and they do have some extra appropriate gear to use.
Shown off in the trailer (embedded below) is Hawkeye’s bow, Thor’s Stormbreaker, Captain America’s shield and Iron Man’s repulsor gauntlets.
These items will apparently be scattered across the map, making it a race between the two opposing forces to collect their appropriate items and win.
Participating in this limited time event will yield certain free rewards with the only one being revealed in a glider modelled after the Quinjet.
Those looking to spend will also find new items in the store. More will be added “early next week” with the first set being focused on Black Widow (featured in the header image above).
All this content is already live in the game so all you need to do is download the latest updates and jump in.
If you’re only interested in the MCU and not Fortnite, or you’re at work right now and can’t watch the movie or play the game, give our spoiler-free review of Endgame a read.
