The Return of the Thanos Infinity Gauntlet LTM Event
When Avengers: Infinity War hit cinemas last year, Fortnite celebrated its release with a crossover event. The Infinity Gauntlet LTM saw the powerful weapon drop somewhere around the map, with players transforming into the purple titan if they managed to reach it first.
Equipped with punch, laser, and jump attacks, and a massive pool of health and shield, whoever obtained Thanos then became the main target for almost everyone else in the game. It switched up the traditional formula, without messing with it so much that it no longer felt like Fortnite. In essence, it was the perfect foray into crossover events to show it was possible.
Well, it turns out that players are likely going to get another round of Thanos-focused action if new kill feed messages uncovered in recent data mines of patches are to be believed. In the second image courtesy of SkinTrackerCom, “yielded to the POWER of Thanos” can be seen as one of the new kill feed messages added into the game.
Whether or not this new Fortnite x Avengers crossover event will alter things slightly in order to keep up with the goings-on of Endgame or not remains to be seen, but we’d be very surprised given all of the teases (more on those soon) if Epic didn’t bring back this fan-favorite mode as the headline act.
