Fortnite's Thanos Mode Will Not Be Available From Tomorrow

Super Fortnite Angry Fortnite Players Keep Calling the Wrong Epic Games
June Sullivan | 16 May, 2018, 12:45

Fortnite fans on PS4, Xbox One, Mobile, PC and Macs will see servers go down from 9am BST, which is 4am ET, ahead of the release of patch 4.2.

'V4.2 is releasing tomorrow, May 16. "Downtime begins at 4am ET (08:00 GMT)".

There appears to have been a game-changing glitch in the Fortnite x Avengers Limited Time Mode of the popular Fortnite: Battle Royale video game.

While Thanos will be snapping his way out of the game soon, here's hoping that Fortnite crosses over with other big pop-culture franchises sometime in the future.

It was meant to last for a week but has run just a little over that.

And with the new release will come patch notes, FYI.

As Battle Royale was faced with a release delay earlier this week - some believe it was due to the new Replay Mode being released in iOS, but Epic Games didn't say - it has been confirmed all issues have been solved and 4.2 patch is primed and ready for release. However, the jetpack didn't make it to "Fortnite Battle Royale" as the developers apparently found a design glitch that needed to be fixed. Today's update message now shows the burst assault rifle will get variations at epic and legendary rarities when the update lands.

Epic Games hasn't revealed any details about the item, so no one knows for sure how it works.

The news of the new Burst Assault Rifle hasn't been publicized through Fortnite's various social media accounts, but those who have been playing Fortnite recently spotted the new weapon included in the "New Updates" section when you log in.

According to stats from Hookit.com, that is more that sports superstars such as Cristiano Ronaldo, Tom Brady, LeBron James and Lionel Messi.
