Thanos returns to Fortnite as a new skin

The Mad Titan has announced his return to the world of Fortnite. Thanos initially arrived in the game as part of the Infinity Gauntlet LTM during the release of Avengers: Infinity War. It became one of the most popular game modes in the history of the Epic Games developed title, and fans loved it. The character will now arrive as an outfit on the Item Shop next week on June 26 at 5 PM ET. Along with that, he will also have an Infinity Gauntlet inspired Back Bling as well with the Six Infinity Stones.

Players can also earn the skin early by competing in the Thanos Cup on June 21. They will team up as a Duo for a three-hour competition where they earn points by killing enemies and gaining placement points. The best performing duos from each region will earn the Outfit and the Back Bling almost five days before its release on the Item Shop.

Is Thanos’ arrival a signal for the return of the Avengers?

Thanos’ arrival on the Island marked the first major collaboration between Fortnite and the esteemed comic book company. Soon after, the Avengers also joined as part of a crossover during the release of Endgame in 2019. Finally, the Epic Games title blew everyone’s mind with a season full of collaboration last year during Chapter 2 Season 4. The Nexus War introduced new characters to the game like Wolverine, Galactus, Thor, Dr Doom, and many more.

Since then, Fortnite has also included the other side of the comic book world with DC. With the arrival of Thanos, it seems like Epic Games might have something huge planned. Fans would be quite excited to see some iconic comic book properties partner up for a massive fight. The developers have a lot of villains they can use from both sides, and a big bad of galactic proportions will be perfect for fans to witness the battle of a lifetime.

It remains to be seen how Epic Games will continue with the game’s current storyline. Fortnite currently has a lot of plot points involving DC and Marvel. By joining these two worlds together, fans might receive the most epic collaboration with characters like Superman and Iron Man fighting together, and it might even cause the Internet to break.
