Another Fortnite Battle Royale update, another limited time mode. And, of course, with Avengers: Endgame hitting theaters, Epic and Marvel are doing another cross-over.

This time, players won't just be able to play as Thanos -- if they're lucky enough to grab the Infinity Gauntlet. Rather, Thanos and the Chitauri are invading the island and it's up to a team of heroes to stop them from grabbing all the Infinity Stones and snapping half the Fortnite players out of existence... (Okay... I don't really think the snapping thing will happen.)

Players can play as either the heroes or Thanos and his minions in an epic battle. Although, everyone on the "bad" side starts out as a Chitauri warrior. The first of the Chitauri to get their hands on a stone becomes Thanos. If the Thanos player is eliminated, another Chitauri will take his place.

If you're playing as a hero. It's important to make sure Thanos and the gang don't collect all the stones. If they do, your team will not be able to respawn once killed. Fun, right?

That said. It's probably just a good idea to keep the other side from getting any of the stones, since each stone provides a stat boost to Thanos and the Chitauri. Each of these boosts is detailed in the patch notes.

For added fun, it appears players will also be getting Avengers-themed gear -- Iron Man's gauntlets, Cap's shield, Thor's hammer-axe, and Hawkeye's bow all appear in the video below. There's even a sweet Black Widow skin players can pick up from the store.
