The collaboration of Fortnite and Marvel Entertainment will get back Marvel’s biggest villain, Thanos, in the game. Epic Games has had several collaborations before in Fortnite, and the one with Marvel remains one of the best. Thanos’ comeback to Fortnite makes it “inevitable.” After its debut in Avengers Endgame Limited Time Mode three years back, Fortnite fans will experience him again in the game and can get the Thanos Outfit for free via Thanos Cup.
Thanos Cup Schedule
The Thanos Cup tournament has started in Fortnite and will run three-hour-long. Players will get an opportunity to complete ten duo’s matches in that given time. They can earn as many points as they want. Moreover, Fortnite players will get more Avengers-themed content with Back Bling and a Wall Spray emote, along with a Thanos skin.
Thanos will drop into Fortnite’s Item Shop at 8 pm ET on June 26, 2021. Players will be able to play as the Mad Titan himself, in spite of equipping the Infinity Gauntlet Back Bling (with all six Infinity Stones), inspired by Marvel Studios’ Avengers Endgame.
