Avengers content is coming back to Fortnite

The Avengers are taking over everything this week

Avengers: Endgame is finally released this week – and as part of Hulk-sized marketing push, the Marvel Universe is heading back to Fortnite.

Last year, to tie in with the release of Avengers: Infinity War, Thanos himself was inserted into the ultra-popular battle royale game.

The special, limited edition mode – called “Infinity Gauntlet Limited Time Mashup” – saw whichever player grabbed the Infinity Gauntlet first turn into the multi-chined purple overlord and got a massive power boost.

We do not yet know what form the new tie-in will take. All we have so far is a mysterious tweet from the official Fortnite account, featuring Captain America’s shield, the message “Whatever it takes”.

The new content is set to drop on April 25th, the day the film is out.

Who knows what form it will take, but we would expect a “Wakanda Forever” emote to be a good bet to be at least part of it.

The hype machine for Avengers: Endgame is in full swing. This weekend, Marvel put all of the post-credit teasers from every MCU movie online, for you to binge before seeing Endgame.

Reportedly, copies of the film have already leaked online, and major spoilers are apparently bouncing around the internet – causing fans to even stay offline until they have seen it.

For that exact reason, directors of the movie The Russo Brothers issued a desperate plea to people not to spoil Endgame.

In an open letter posted on their Twitter page, The Russo Brothers wrote: “This is it. This is the end. The end of an unprecedented narrative mosaic spanning eleven franchises.”

They went on to say: “When you see Endgame in the coming weeks, please don’t spoil it for others, the same way you wouldn’t want it spoiled for you.

“Remember, Thanos still demands your silence.”

And if you need a refresher on the MCU yourself, we got the Russos to explain every single film so far in a sentence.
