Fortnite Teams Up With Avengers: Endgame To Release Limited Time Game Mode
Avengers: Endgame is just around the corner, and the hugely popular Battle Royale game, Fortnite is celebrating the spirit of the new movie. The game has previously introduced events such as Marshmello concerts to keep the player base hooked to the game. The most recent update to the game includes a special Avengers: Endgame mode, where half the players will take up the roles of Thanos’s army, the Chitauri, or Thanos himself. The other half however, will get to play the roles of the Avengers themselves.
Avengers: Endgame Mode Details
In the new game mode, players can respawn upon being eliminated until one side wins by completing the objective. The heroes’ mission is to stop Thanos and his army from collecting all infinity stones spread throughout the map. The heroes start the game with a treasure map that has directions to a Mythic Avengers item somewhere in the map. Apart from the mythic items, the rest of the Avengers items can be collected via multiple chests scattered across the terrain.
The enemy team consists of Thanos and his minions, called the Chitauri. The Chitauri invaders start with a laser rifle, a grenade to destroy structures and a jetpack which can propel players into the air for a short amount of time. Once the first Chitauri invader gets his/her hands on an Infinity stone, he/she will be transformed into the purple Titan, Thanos himself. The abilities of Thanos includes a powerful punch attack, a strong laser attack and leaping high into the air and smashing everything when he lands back on the ground. With the acquisition of each infinity stone, Thanos will become more powerful and will gain a multitude of abilities. If Thanos dies in combat, a random Chitauri invader will take his place as the next Thanos. The game ends when Thanos and his army find all the stones to kill the Avengers or if the Avengers and other heroes eliminate Thanos and his army.
With over 250 million registered players, Fortnite has broken a lot of records since it was released. With a peak player count of almost 10.8 million players, the game remains, by large, one of the most popular battle royale games of all time. Moreover, the company also released a patch for Fortnite on Android, which enables MSAA anti-aliasing to now function normally on the Huawei Mate 20, P30 Pro and the Mate 20X. Furthermore, the reactive animation effects on the Marshmello outfit were fixed as well.
