Whatever it takes.
Epic Games is teasing yet another Fortnite and Avengers crossover, scheduled to drop just before Endgame is released later this week.
This news was revealed though the official Fortnite Twitter account with the caption “Whatever it takes. 4.25.19.” Though it’s unclear exactly what the Avengers content is, the tweet is accompanied by the image of a character holding Captain America’s classic vibranium shield. Whatever it is, expect something big to happen on April 25, the day before Endgame comes to theaters in America.
Of course, this isn’t the first time Fortnite and Avengers have experienced a crossover event, as around this time last year, soon after the release of Infinity War, a limited-time Infinity Gauntlet mode featuring the ever-powerful Thanos became available. It’s unclear if this year’s event will once again feature Thanos, but the teaser image suggests other characters like Captain America and their iconic weapons/powers could be the center of attention this time around.
Hopefully Cap’s shield or other potential items don’t disrupt the balance of the game, similar to last year’s Infinity Blade mythic item that had to be removed for being overpowered. In other Fortnite news, Epic announced the World Cup Creative event that will run from April 29 – June 7 to showcase its creative community.
Meanwhile, Avengers: Endgame is barreling towards its impending release: April 26, 2019 in the United States, April 25 in the UK and April 24 in Australia. For more on Endgame, read about the Russo Brothers asking fans not to spoil the movie.
