Fortnite: Thanos Has Arrived – How To Play As The Mad Titan (VIDEO)
It’s official: Fortnite is taking over the world. With the Battle Bus traversing the far reaches of the land, players seemingly can’t get enough of the game and its popular Battle Royale mode. This is especially true now that there is a limited time mashup between the title and Avengers: Infinity War. The new event brings The Mad Titan himself to the fight, and gives gamers a chance to become Thanos and wield the Infinity Gauntlet.
A few changes have arrived with the new event, but we’ll get into all of that fun stuff later. For now, let’s focus on how one becomes Thanos. After a round of Battle Royale begins, a meteor will come crashing down within the safe zone, with the payload being none other than the Infinity Gauntlet. Once a player obtains the Gauntlet, they will transform into Thanos. All of his abilities, features, and more can be found below, as well as everything new that has arrived with the update. But first, let’s take a look at the trailer:
