Avengers: Endgame event is coming to Fortnite

Epic Games is again linking up with the Marvel Cinematic Universe as the developer has teased a Fortnite and Avengers: Endgame crossover.

We don’t know many details yet, other than a start date of April 25th, the same day the movie hits theaters, and that it might have something to do with Captain America’s shield.

It isn’t clear based on the tweet exactly what this crossover might mean, but it would appear it will begin on Thursday, April 25.

The tweet includes a Fortnite character skin, which looks like Bright Bomber, holding onto Captain America’s shield. Based on the image, it doesn’t look like we’re getting a simple return of Fortnite’s Thanos mode from the Infinity War event.

Avengers: Endgame is expected to be one of the biggest movies of 2019. It arrives later this week and will conclude the battle between Thanos and Marvel’s all-star cast.

If you think back to when Infinity War was released last year, you might recall a special promotion in the free-to-play battle royale game Fortnite. The developers added in the Infinity Gauntlet, allowing players to become Thanos.

Busy time in Fortnite

As always, it’s a busy time in Fortnite. In addition to the forthcoming Avengers content, the game’s map is also undergoing changes as a series of strange alien runes steadily make their way across the island.

Meanwhile, the competitive community is gearing up for the upcoming World Cup in July, which will include both battle royale and creative competitions.
