Epic Games is no stranger to crossing over to other works and medias in its popular Battle Royale ‘Fortnite’ title. Already one of the most popular online game titles in the world, Fortnite is a monument in the game industry pretty much like how Marvel’s Avengers is the staple of the filming industry. And it looks like these two giants are planning to team up to create the ultimate mash-up.

Fortnite’s official Twitter account recently took to the platform with an enigmatic post and an image of a Fortnite character (Looks like Bright Bomber’s skin) holding Captain America’s iconic shield. Along with the image, there’s a short caption ‘Whatever it takes’ and a date: 4.25.19. We, along with the rest of the world, don’t know what this could possibly mean. But one thing we are sure of is that the answer will arrive on Thursday, 25th of April, 2019.

Some time ago we have had the pleasure of fooling around with the Thanos mode during the Infinity War special event. But judging from the image, it doesn’t look like it would be the same thing this time around.

Could Mean A Lot of Things

There is an endless number of possibilities on what the picture could mean. It could mean a new cosmetic package with Marvel theme ("There is no cosmetic item that attaches specifically to the arm of the user at the moment, so we are interested in seeing how this could possibly turn out," said the developer). But it might also be the unveiling of a new game mode pretty much like how Thanos mode was introduced during Infinity War. Maybe we could get Cap’s shield or weapons of other characters from the movie as pickups?

No matter what the crossover could possibly mean for Fortnite players, there is no doubt it will be interesting. Before the official date, though, there would most likely be a couple teases along the way, but we don’t expect it to elaborate more on the matter just like this one. April 25th - the day before Endgame hit theatre - is the only time when we could know what Epic Games is having in store.
