Hands up if you really thought that Epic Games was going to let the release of Avengers: Endgame pass without tying it up with their hit battle royale title, Fortnite. Previously, Epic Games had launched a Fortnite x Avengers event during the release of Avengers: Infinity War. This was obviously popular and well-received. The next Fortnite x Avengers mashup should be just as successful if not even bigger considering just how much Fortnite have grown since then. The latest Fortnite x Avengers event will officially kick off on April 25, Thursday. This is just a day before the premiere of Avengers: Endgame. With how successful Fortnite’s previous collaboration with Marvel was, the bar is set high for the next event. But, of course, as already mentioned, Fortnite has all the ingredients in place to make this new collaboration even bigger. With that said, what can we expect from the Fortnite x Avengers event?Well, for starters, we should probably see the Mad Titan, Thanos, make a return once again. Fortnite is just too good of an opportunity to pass up letting the bulging megalomaniac wreak havoc on the map once again, as Epic Games once did in their previous event. But, that’s not all. Another thing that fans should expect is the inclusion of the heroes in one form of another. Our take is that we’re going to see them as skins, as alluded to by Fortnite’s recent teaser showing a female Captain America. Of course, Fortnite could certainly take it up a notch by introducing both the big baddie in Thanos and the heroes in the game in a limited time mode setting. This should certainly be interesting. If this happens, we should expect to see an even more powerful Thanos jumping all over the map once again as other players take them on as possibly any one of the Avengers in the game, as if to reenact the story of Avengers: Endgame. Either way, one thing we’re sure of when it comes to Epic Games is that they’re not going to let this opportunity slip by without milking it dry, or so to speak. Expect the event to make Fortnite players come in droves and make them want to throw their money at their consoles and PCs as they buy countless hero-related cosmetic items from the item shop.
