Here's when Fortnite's Avengers: Infinity War mashup is ending


 

All good things must come to an end, and that includes Thanos’ reign in Fortnite Battle Royale.

Developer Epic Games has announced that the Avengers: Infinity War limited time mashup event will come to an end tomorrow, May 15th.

The Infinity War mashup introduced the recently released blockbuster’s main villain, Thanos, to the world of Fortnite Battle Royale. Wielding his Infinity Gauntlet, players who controlled Thanos gained access to incredible powers, including the ability to launch themselves into the air, hover, and attack with either a powerful punch or a deadly laser beam. Players become Thanos by picking up the Infinity Gauntlet after the last player who was using Thanos was killed in a Juggernaut-style twist on the normal battle royale game mode.

The mashup mode launched a little less than a week ago and was incredibly popular, despite having some balance issues. Mere hours after the mode launched, Epic nerfed Thatnos’ health, armor, and damage output, before again patching him to make his damage output even stronger than before while further decreasing his health. Again, let us remind you that the mode has only been around for six days.

Unfortunately, while the Avengers crossover might brought with it one of the most fun game modes Fortnite has ever seen, it didn’t add any Avengers-themed skins, items, or emotes to the mix, even though Captain America’s shield would have made for the perfect umbrella design.

Even though Thanos is leaving Fortnite in a few hours, players will still have plenty to look forward to as Season 4 continues. New challenges for week 4 Tilted Towers- and sniper-specific challenges, according to a reported leak.

Fortnite is available on PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and mobile.
