Avengers: Infinity War's Thanos Drops into Fortnite Today


Eurogamer has the story.

Quote:
Thanos, the big purple baddie of Avengers: Infinity War, officially arrives in Fortnite today.

The official, Marvel-sponsored crossover between the biggest movie on the planet and the hottest game on the planet sees Thanos arrive as a playable character - if you find his Infinity Gauntlet.

The gauntlet will drop to the ground via a meteor (yes, another one) at the start of a match. Pick it up and you'll transform into Thanos and gain super powers.

You'll be able to punch to knock enemies back and destroy structures, pull off a devastating ground pound, fire a damage-over-time energy blast and super-jump to great heights. Additionally, Thanos has a regenerating shield and doesn't take fall damage.

The trade-off? You won't be able to build, use weapons or items such as launch pads. According to Epic's patch notes, Thanos "has no need for such petty human devices".

Should Thanos be killed, the Infinity Gauntlet will drop for someone else to pick up.
Click on the Headline for the Trailer.

A game based around noob kills gets a character that can't be killed to make the noobs feel even more powerful.

Not sure if serious.

The cross-promotion and money exchanged in the deal was serious.

The actual game? Nah.... but the selling of cosmetics is serious business.

I don't play the multiplayer part. I love the PvE mode, it's great, but gets very little support because right now the game is all about selling noobs their $20 skins.

I figure after the Battle Royale craze kinda dies off you will see them put some more time into the campaign stuff.

Fantastic game and I am super happy that Epic is making mad bank, it's just not the game for me. I get nothing out of little 1v1 deathmatch. Even DOOM has better multiplayer. I prefer something with big team battles and vehicles.

I think I would have really liked Star Wars Battlefront if they hadn't screwed themselves with loot crates and zero cosmetics. The cosmetics are what keep you coming back and Battlefront has none.

I would play a lot of Gears of War, except the darn thing takes up like 120 GB of hard drive space and I don't have that to spare for any one game.

I'll add that it is funny that I never got Battlefield 1 and now they are stopping support for the game. So, I guess that wasn't a bad decision.

Last time that happened, with H1Z1, they paid a lot of lip service to supporting the survival game while they focused heavy on the BR mode. Now both are struggling and the Survival mode is on life support if it is breathing at all.

Epic still puts some new content into the PvE, it just isnít their big priority right now and I understand that, but the Save the World mode is a fantastic evolution of Horde mode gameplay and really deserves more attention than it is getting. I think there is a lot of potential for modes like Domination and CTF in a world where you can build bases. And more skins and more monsters would be great too.

Iím sure you will see it continue to evolve as the Battle Royale starts to die off.
