Fortnite has received a shock new update to celebrate the release of Avengers: Infinity War – and it seems almost as surprising to developers. The game has received a special that sees Thanos, the villain from the film, appear in the game. Unlike other recent Fortnite developments, the addition of the Avengers mode was not teased much in advance and came with no marketing campaign.
Announced during Star Wars Celebration Europe, the upcoming Darth Vader VR movie is being produced by ILMxLabs – much like the recently unveiled (and completely awesome) ‘Trials on Tatooine’ experience. “You are the visitor in this story that is happening in and around you, and to a certain extent you might even have some effect on,” said David S. Goyer. After experiencing ‘Trials on Tatooine’ for myself, I’m very excited by the prospect of a Darth Vader VR experience.
