Epic’s Fortnite (Free) is the biggest game on the planet right now, so in some weird way it totally makes sense that they’re teaming up with Marvel to do a crossover event with The Avengers. Weirder yet, details surrounding the event were exclusively provided to Entertainment Weekly. Without gettin goo spoiler-y, basically what they’re doing is another slugfest event, but this time the spin is Thanos’s Infinity Gauntlet will spawn somewhere on the map. The player who finds it and equips it will have all of Thanos’s powers.

If you haven’t seen the movie yet, let’s just say wielding the Infinity Gauntlet should that player ridiculously powerful. I’m really curious to see how they’re going to balance this, as the Infinity Gauntlet as it appears in the movie would be … well, completely game-breaking, to put it lightly.
Also, for real, if you haven’t seen the movie yet, get on that. The Marvel Comic Universe movies have been getting better and better, and the best way to describe The Avengers: Infinity War is that it’s “The Empire Strikes Back of Marvel movies." Not only is it among the better Marvel movies but it sets up the whole franchise for a massive conclusion in the fourth upcoming Avengers movie.
