Like a Marvel event, the point of Fortnite is to kill everyone else before resurrecting really fast.

Just when you thought Avengers: Infinity War was the biggest crossover of all time, Marvel decided to go one step further, partnering with Epic Games to bring Thanos into the world of Fortnite.
Starting May 8, the Infinity Gauntlet Limited Time Mashup game mode will see the addition of the Infinity Gauntlet to the 100 player battle royale. The first player to find the gauntlet will turn into Thanos giving them a massive advantage.
Infinity War directors Joe and Anthony Russo are massive Fortnite fans.
Donald Mustard is the worldwide creative director of Epic Games.
This partnership is a match made in heaven as both Fortnite and the standard Marvel supermegacrossover event see deaths on an unprecedented scale before quickly resurrecting everyone that died like it never happened.
