Fortnite X Avengers: Endgame live today, fight as Thanos or Avengers

The latest crossover between Marvel and Fortnite lets you wield the weapons of the Avengers or Thanos’ Chitauri invaders.

Last year’s Avengers: Infinity War crossover had Fortnite players competing to play as Thanos, but the new limited time event for Endgame is going to be a bit different.

This time you’ll have the chance for your regular character to wield the weapons of the Avengers, including Thor’s new hammer Stormbreaker, Iron Man’s repulsor blasts, Captain America’s shield, and, err… Hawkeye’s arrows.

If you want to play as a bad guy though you can be a Chitauri warrior (the cannon fodder baddies from the first film) with their sci-fi weapons and a jetpack.

The deals is that the Chitauri are invading Battle Royale island, looking for the six Infinity Stones, and the first to find one gets transformed into Thanos – with each extra stone granting more powerful abilities.

If you’re playing as the good guys you have to find hidden Mythic Avengers items and use them to stop Thanos and his cronies.

There’s more details on the mode, and the other v8.50 update changes, here but the servers are going to be down from 10am setting everything up, so it may be an hour or two until you can actually play.

There’s no indication how long the mode will be live for, but the movie only comes out this week – so it’ll probably be for a couple of weeks at least.
