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

Fortnite Wield The Power Of The Infinity Gauntlet In This Limited Time Special Event

This week Epic Games launched a brand new limited time mash up for Fortnite which brings The Avengers: Infinity War antagonist, Thanos, into the game... and nearly immediately nerfs the chap.

Thanos was recently added into Fortnite as a free, playable character.

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.

The Infinity Gauntlet Limited Time Mashup mode went live yesterday, allowing one player to take control of Thanos and his unique abilities.

Fortnite Battle Royale is a competitive mashup of The Hunger Games and Minecraft, where 100 players land on a remote island, collect resources, and attempt to survive as the last person standing. He's also fun to play as well, as he has the Infinity Gauntlet in his arsenal.

Fans on Reddit have now digitally inserted the Fortnite version of the movie villain seamlessly into scenes from both 2012's The Avengers and 2014's Guardians of the Galaxy - with pretty humorous results.

The idea for the crossover arose out of the mutual admiration between the creative minds behind the two popular entertainment franchises.

Those being Avengers: Infinity War directors Joe and Anthony Russo, who say they played a lot of Fortnite in between editing sessions.

Epic Games creative director Donald Mustard got a call from Joe, and they started "brainstorming these insane ideas".
