We’re not sure if you’ve noticed but Avengers: Endgame is out this week. To coincide with the launch of Marvel’s arthouse indie flick about a group of best buds taking on a radical activist, Epic Games has introduced a crossover event into its little multiplayer game Fortnite.
Over the next few days, those playing the Endgame LTM will be split into two teams. One team will be aligned with Thanos and the Chitauri, while the others will be taking on the role of the heroes. Team Thanos must find all the Infinity Stones and power up the mad titan so he can decimate the enemy forces, while the heroes can locate and equip weapons used by the Avengers to bring Thanos and his army down.
Tying into the LTM is a set of challenges which, when completed, will unlock some really cool cosmetic rewards. Arguably the most exciting is a new Glider that is modeled after the Quinjet. There are also sprays, emoticons, and banners themed after the franchise. The initial three challenges are available now, and involve using Iron Man’s repulsors to do damage, collecting three Infinity Stones, and playing seven Endgame LTM matches. More challenges will become available every two days, and you can take a look at the rewards on offer below.
Fortnite’s Avengers: Endgame Challenges
- Complete any 10 challenges to earn the reward item – Avenger’s Quinjet Glider
- Deal damage while hovering with Iron Man’s repulsors (100) – 500 XP
- Collect Infinity Stones (3) – Fortnite Endgame Loading Screen
- Play matches of Endgame (7) – Captain America’s shield Banner
In our Avengers: Endgame review, Michael Rougeau described the movie as «a love letter to the entire MCU-the whole thing.» He continued: «It’s messy and confusing, and there’s going to be a lot of discussion about whether the ending even makes sense … but holy hell is it an emotional, fulfilling ride. I have no doubt we’re going to spend the coming weeks picking and pulling it apart until we’ve over-analyzed every single aspect imaginable. But right now, in the aftermath, Avengers Endgame feels like a win.»
