Fortnite Battle Royale players had a unique chance to use Thanos a few months ago. The powerful villain played a main role in the Infinity Gauntlet limited-time game mode. Epic Games used this mode to promote Avengers: Infinity War movie, and it was very successful.
According to the data mined game files, the villain could soon return to Fortnite Battle Royale. While the Fortnite developer hasn’t revealed anything about this, we can expect it to come out in November. Considering that many players enjoyed the Infinity Gauntlet mode, it won’t be surprising if Epic Games brings it back.
The return of Thanos
Fortnite players had received some huge changes in season 4. The in-game island was drastically changed, and the developer released the Infinity Gauntlet mode shortly after. Just like in the comic books and movies, Thanos was a villain in Fortnite Battle Royale. He was incredibly powerful and had much more health and shield than a regular player.
The villain had four unique abilities. and one of them was a powerful beam of energy. This ranged ability allowed Thanos to deal massive damage to his opponents, and as it turns out, Epic Games has updated it recently.

The game developer updated the ability icon with the patch v6.20. Data miners believe that the Infinity Gauntlet mode will return to Fortnite, which makes a lot of sense. After all, Epic Games would not update the icon for no reason. Furthermore, the trailer for the new Avengers movie will most likely come out in early November.
If the Fortnite creator releases the Thanos mode, its purpose will be to promote the movie. Considering that it worked really well the first time, there is no reason not to do it again. Additionally, we can expect Epic Games to make some changes to the mode and make it even more fun to play.
