Today is Fortnite players’ last chance to play the Infinity Gauntlet game mode before the Limited Time Mashup ends tomorrow.
The mode was always marketed as one that wouldn’t be around for long, and now that it’s been out for almost a week, it’s getting ready to come to a close. Epic Games shared news through the official Fortnite Twitter account that confirmed the game mode would end tomorrow and encouraged players to give wielding the Infinity Gauntlet one last try before it’s unavailable.

Fortnite’s Infinity Gauntlet game mode allowed players to wield the Gauntlet themselves and become Thanos as seen in the trailer above, assuming they were lucky enough to be the one to reach the Gauntlet first.

Josh Brolin also saw Thanos’ moves for himself recently and commented on the Mad Titan’s dances. Brolin played Thanos in Avengers: Infinity War and did a video with IGN where he reacted to seeing his character in Fortnite. Referring to Thanos as Michael Thanos Jackson, Brolin said that seeing Thanos doing that was pretty weird.
Even though the Infinity Gauntlet mode is ending soon, you can still get your atypical Fortnite game mode fill by playing the 50v50 game mode that’s also back as of May 11. The game mode may not be around for too much longer either, so get in time with both of them before they’re replaced with a different Limited Time Mode.
