Fortnite's Thanos Mode Will Not Be Available From Tomorrow

Fortnite Season 4 Combat

The new Fortnite weapon will come in legendary and epic variants.

In the special gameplay mode, Thanos' all-powerful Infinity Gauntlet - which in the movies has the power to instantly wipe out trillions of living beings - will spawn at random points in the map.

'V4.2 is releasing tomorrow, May 16. There hasn't been an update on when this downtime will now take place, though Epic has stated that it will be informing players when the developer has a time nailed down.

The Fortnite 4.2 patch notes have yet to be released, as they will coincide with the launch of the v4.2 update.

And there are new features, some of you might like, some may not. Today's update message now shows the burst assault rifle will get variations at epic and legendary rarities when the update lands.

It's also been said there will be bug fixes to improve overall quality of the game, including changes to Turbo Building and general improvements to Twitch Prime flow for those attempting to redeem the Prime Pack. Fortnite INTEL reported on the new weapon and shared the image below that shows Epic Games' brief description of the new addition. The player who manages to snag the Gauntlet will turn into Thanos himself, equipped with Infinity Stone-enhanced abilities and all. Fresh from his all conquering box-office performance in Avengers: Infinity War, Thanos and the Infinity Gauntlet have been introduced as a limited time game mode in Fortnite.

However, Epic Games delayed the release of the patch after discovering an "issue" with the update.
