Epic Games has announced Fortnite: Endgame, the Avengers crossover event that launches today.
After days of teasing, a new trailer shows Thanos and his army of Chitauri walking across the Fortnite map, before a team of Fortnite characters turn up and take out one of the Titan’s troops with Captain America’s shield. The squad can be seen wielding Hawkeye’s bow, Thor’s Stormbreaker axe, and Iron Man’s repulsor gauntlets.
The update’s patch notes describes the event as a fight against Thanos and his army, who are tracking down the six Infinity Stones. Players are divided into two teams – Team Thanos and Team Heroes – and the mode supports respawning until specific conditions are met.
