Epic Games have colloborated with Marvel for a limited time mashup that will bring a limited time mode to Fortnite starting from tomorrow, Tuesday 8th May.

The LTM will be called “Infinity Gauntlet” and will be the same as the standard mode, however the Infinity Gauntlet will be in play. Whoever finds and equips the artifact will transform into Thanos and wield all the power of the Infinity Stones.

This all happened because co-directors of Avengers: Infinity War co-directors Joe and Anthony Russo are huge fans of Fortnite and has this to say in an exclusive with  Entertainment Weekly:

“Over the past few months, while we were editing Infinity War, we’d take breaks to hop on and get in a few games,” Joe exclusively told EW. “And then we started thinking, how cool would it be to have some kind of Avengers–Fortnite mashup? So we stalked Donald.”

Here’s what Donald Mustard, the worldwide creative director of Epic Games, had to say:

“Out of the blue, I get this call from Joe. And after a bit of geeking out over each other’s work, we start brainstorming these crazy ideas,” Mustard recalled. “It was really important that whatever we did, it had to be super authentic to both Fortnite and the Avengers: Infinity War, and something that fans of both would be excited about. About an hour later, we had the bones of this awesome idea for a limited time gameplay mode, and almost immediately our team got started.”

Ok but we all knew it was coming. I mean, all the signs on the bases looked like the avengers sign, and you can’t have superheroes without avengers.

If we kill the person with the gauntlet does he drop it and the others can got it with the rest of his loot and will it be op due to the fact he got all six stones or does he have to find them and will he be big because if thanos in regular size would look stupid like maybe little bigger than average
