Avengers: Infinity War Fortnite Crossover Event

EW.com has word that an Avengers: Infinity War crossover is coming to the battle royale mode in Fortnite, offering a mashup of the hit game and the hit movie. For a limited time beginning tomorrow, the game will feature an infinity gauntlet, and equipping it transforms the player into Thanos. Here's word on how this came together from Donald Mustard, the worldwide creative director of Epic Games:
“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.”

The crossover felt organic. Much as the Russos were gushing over Fortnite, Mustard added, “Infinity War blew us away, and the Russos, [Marvel Studios President] Kevin Feige, and the whole team at Marvel have been incredible to work with. This kind of opportunity, where you have this mutual respect for someone’s work and you’re on the same page about doing something cool for fans, is rare and really exciting. We hope players love it.”
