Fortnite Mobile: New Update Introduces Thanos

Something no one has anticipated has arrived to Fortnite today. Who would’ve thought that you can become Marvel’s Almighty Thanos in Fortnite? In a partnership between Epic Games and Marvel, you can now hunt for the Infinity Gauntlet in Fortnite and transform into Thanos. This is a limited-time opportunity so if there was ever a good time to play this game, now is the time.

Early in the match, there will be a meteor that will land in the safe zone of the map which will include the Infinity Gauntlet. Once you discover and equip the Infinity Gauntlet, not only will you transform into Thanos but will also wield the Gauntlet’s power. Eliminating Thanos will be very difficult and you will need a lot of firepower. If successful, the player with the Gauntlet will die and it will fall on the ground, available for anyone to pick up.

According to Epic Games, these are the abilities that Thanos will have:

  • Ability 1 – A mighty punch that knocks enemies back and destroys structures.
  • Ability 2 – Thanos flies towards the ground, hitting an area for knockback and damage.
  • Ability 3 – Harness the energy of the Power stone to fire a blast that deals damage over time.
  • Ability 4 – A super-jump that can vault Thanos over all but the largest obstructions.

These are amazing abilities to have in Fortnite and will be very interesting to see how players like them. Keep in mind that Thanos has shield and health but his health never regenerates. He doesn’t take damage when he falls from high locations nor does he build, use weapons outside his abilities or any items that normal players use. Finally, mobile gamers will now notice that the autorun feature has been temporarily disabled due to several complaints regarding it. Epic Games has also optimized memory on mobile devices to counter out-of-memory crashes. Check out the Infinity Gauntlet Promo below.
