The big pop culture event happening this week is of course the release of Avengers: Endgame, and Fortnite will kind of be a part of that thanks to another collaboration with the MCU.
This has been teased with a single tweet from the official Fortnite account (below), using the “whatever it takes” line from the Engame trailers and a date just two days from now at the time of writing.
Simply called “Fortnite X Avengers” there’s no solid information out there right now about what exactly it entails. If we had to guess we’d simply say Endgame-themed cosmetics.
We may be doing the game a disservice in saying that however, as the last time the Avengers were injected into Fortnite it took the form of a new mode where one player could transform into Thanos by finding the Infinity Gauntlet and proceeding to wreck everyone on the server until they were defeated.
With so much effort going into that for Endgame, it’s reasonable to assume that a similar level will be on display for Endgame. If it’s not just cosmetics maybe we’ll see yet another new game mode.
We’d like to see a horde mode similar to the original, non-battle royale Fortnite where each player takes on the role of one Avenger with unique powers as they hold off waves of Outriders. Since Thanos has already been created and implemented in the past, it wouldn’t surprise us to see him return for any new modes, or simply the Thanos mode coming back.
Whatever this new content is, it should be unveiled or even live a day before the movie, so it shouldn’t contain any spoilers (hopefully).
