LTM Rules and Gameplay[edit | edit source]

Take down Thanos, equip the Gauntlet and claim Victory!

Mashup Details[edit | edit source]

  • Early in the match, a meteor will land in the storm safe zone, delivering the Infinity Gauntlet.
  • Any player who uses the Infinity Gauntlet will transform into Thanos.
  • Stats are recorded for this LTM and can be found in the Solo tab.
  • If Thanos is eliminated, the Gauntlet will fall to the ground, free for the taking. If it sits unused for too long, it will disappear until another meteor appears.
  • Last player standing will be the victor!

  • Maximum match length is roughly 15 minutes.
  • The match will start with the storm circle already closing in over the island.
  • The storm does more damage than normal, ticking for 5% health during the first circle and 10% for the rest of the game.

History[edit | edit source]

Infinity War directors Joe and Anthony Russo have stated that they are fans of Fortnite, and played it during down time while working on the film.[3] Epic released the following statement at the release of Infinity Gauntlet:

This collaboration started as a simple phone conversation between Epic and Marvel over a mutual appreciation for Fortnite and Avengers. We worked closely over the following weeks to bring these two worlds together and landed on the Limited Time Mashup, Infinity Gauntlet. When we saw the movie last weekend, which was incredible, we were even more excited.

This is a collaborative experiment between friends from start to finish. Jump in tomorrow, play and experience Fortnite x Avengers. It’s unlike anything we’ve done before and we want to know what you think![4]

Background[edit | edit source]

Epic Games and Disney, owners of the Marvel franchise, have a history of cooperation-- Epic's Unreal Engine has been used in theme park rides[5] and Star Wars movies.[6] Additionally, Epic Games' parent company Tencent Holdings (40% share), which also has a 5% stake in Disney, has featured comic book collaborations in their games before: in 2017, Tencent acquired the rights from Time Warner to feature DC characters in their games.[7]

These connections did not go unnoticed in the Fortnite community following the release of the superhero themed Season 4. Besides the immediately apparent analogues in the updated Battle Royale map following the crash of the Meteor, smaller details are still being found-- some have even noticed a small orange briefcase with the word "Thor" spraypainted on it.[8]
