Surprisingly, Epic Games began teasing a Fortnite crossover event with the future blockbuster Avengers: Endgame, that releases in theaters in the week. Epic at the start shared an image that showed a Battle Royale character wielding Captain America’s iconic shield. Now, a second teaser image for the game’s future event options another piece of famed superhero equipment: Thor’s charmed axe, Stormbreaker.
Like the initial teaser, this one quotes the “Whatever it takes” tagline from Endgame and offers a release date of april 25, beside the #FortniteXAvengers hashtag. we tend to see less of the character now around, instead simply barely seeing the hand clutching the axe. It appears safe to assume we’ll get another teaser–perhaps one with Iron Man’s suit or Hawkeye’s bow?–on Wednesday before the event begins on Thursday.
It stands to reason that the Battle Royale event can let players use equipment like Cap’s shield and Stormbreaker, seemingly in an exceedingly special limited-time mode. Last year, Epic released a crossover mode to mark the discharge of Avengers: infinity War. therein mode, the infinity Gauntlet would crash into the island, and players would scramble to recover it. Doing therefore would remodel them into Thanos himself and were able to wield varied powers. it had been therefore strong that it got nerfed shortly, a move created so that players would have an improved likelihood to take down Thanos and have an opportunity to assume his power for themselves. Despite apparent sort of a natural match, that event failed to bring with it any Avengers-themed skins, though the game will have outfits that reference various moving picture characters (including one that appears loads like Guardians of the Galaxy’s Star-Lord).
As is typical with these teasers, Epic hasn’t given us a lot of to travel on—just a forward image with a Captain America shield and “Fortnite X Avengers” at the bottom—and the words “Whatever it takes” with a date: april 25, 2019.
And… well, that’s it, my friend. that is all we all know for sure. however a minimum of we don’t have too long to attend, eh—April 25 is simply around the corner.
In alternative Fortnite news, Runes are back, and right in time for Fortnite Season 9. A floating, antimonial object appeared last week close to Paradise Palms, and players quickly discovered they could harm it. The mysterious object contains a large health meter, and it’s shared by all players simultaneously.
As James opines, since the metallic architecture closely resembles the vault at Loot Lake, it’s totally possible they are connected. Here’s hoping it does not upset the pros duking it come in the Fortnite World Cup qualifiers.
