Fortnite has had an obsession with MARVEL ever since superheroes invaded the battle royale field in season 4, but soon you’ll be able to play as the almighty Thanos by buying his skin from the item shop.
Epic Games hosted a cup in honour of the super villain on June 21st, but it has now ended meaning you can no longer get the infinity gauntlet for zilch. It’s the most powerful glove in cinematic and comic books history, with just a snap of a finger bringing grave consequences.
Josh Brolin brought the character to life in the beloved Avengers movies, but soon you will be able to become the purple brute with the crimson chin.
How to get the Thanos skin in Fortnite
Your only way to get the Thanos skin in Fortnite is through buying it from the item shop on June 26th at 17:00 PT and 20:00 ET, as well as 01:00 BST on the 27th.
Gamora’s step dad was available to win for free in his cup on June 21st, but you needed to finish in the top 4,000 players in Europe. Not only was this a feat served for the very best, but the tourney has now ended, too.
The cup was very similar to what we’ve had before with the likes of DareDevil, Ghost Rider, Black Widow and others. And, similar to these superhero boyscouts, the infinity gauntlet wielding dad comes with a back bling.
Only this time the back bling is the golden glove which can wipe out half of the entire universe with just the snap of a finger.
Expected item shop price for the Thanos skin
The expected price for the Thanos skin in the Fortnite item shop is 1,500 – 2,000 V-bucks.
No official cost has been shared by Epic Games, but its fee should be similar to other MARVEL superheroes who became purchasable after starring in cups. Just so you, the outfit will not come with any of the powers seen in the limited-time mode, Infinity Gauntlet.
In addition to the outfit and back bling, you’ll also be able to get cosmetic spray named Thanos Watches. It’s one of the best comic book themed cosmetics yet, and we can’t wait for crimson chinned dad to face off against the man of steel when Superman arrives.
