Fans of Fortnite and the various Avengers film have been left disappointed after an Epic Games employee confirmed that the recent Infinity War crossover will not include other Characters.

After weeks of speculation about a possible superhero theme for Fortnite Battle Royale’s Season 4 of the Battle Pass, May 7th marked the day where some of it was confirmed.

While many people predicted some sort of DC Universe crossover, it looks like it will actually by Marvel that is making a deal with Fortnite following the announcement of the new “Thanos” crossover for the Infinity War film.

In layman’s terms, the crossover will see one “Infinity Guantlet” dropped on the map before every game of Fortnite Battle Royale and the person that finds it will get to turn into Thanos himself.

Of course, what got people really excited about this was the potential of further crossovers and outfits where players could choose to look like various other characters from the Avengers films.

Unfortunately that is looking unlikely as Epic Games employee Nathan Mooney revealed on Reddit:

“rq just because I’ve seen lots of folks asking, we have no plans for Avengers outfits in the store.”

This has left a lot of fans disappointed. However, just because there are “no plans” doesn’t mean it definitely won’t happen.

The National Football League and Epic Games have announced a continuation in their partnership, which is allowing for a slew of new NFL-themed skins in the mega-popular battle royale game Fortnite within the next few days. 

NFL skins in Fortnite are nothing new. Back in 2018, a slew of skins based on NFL football teams made their way into the game, much to the excitement of fans of the sport.

Unfortunately, while the skins returned to the Item Shop in early 2020 due to the Super Bowl, they never really gained notoriety, with the only exception being when Epic gave players a free refund for the skins after the Washington Football Team’s name and logo was changed a few months back.

Despite this, it seems like more NFL skins are on the way.

The new NFL skins will feature a redesigned look compared to their old versions.

The two mega companies have recently announced that they will be “extending” their partnership to allow for more NFL skins in Fortnite. According to a joint press release from both companies, the new skins will be completely redesigned from their previous looks and will have a “more athletic” and “aerodynamic look and feel”.

This new selection of skins will be called the Gridiron Gang Outfits and will represent all 32 NFL teams in both the AFC and NFC.

In addition to the newly redesigned skins, fans will also have a chance to get their hands on a brand new Back Bling for their NFL skins, named Logo-a-go-go. While the name’s a bit of a tongue-twister, these new items are basically just the logo for the team you want to represent stuck onto the back of your character.

Release Date and Time

According to the company, the skins and back bling will be added to the Fortnite Item Shop in just a few days, on November 25. Like every other item added to the in-game store, it should appear when the store gets updated that day.

Currently, the big unknown is how long the items will be in the shop for. Surely, they’ll only be available for a limited time, however, the exact time frame is unclear. It could be in their for as short as a day or maybe a bit longer.

Chances are though that Epic will give fans a few days to get their hands on it before pulling it from the store. Regardless, NFL fans should be ready to grab these items if they want it because with Fortnite, you never know when they’ll come back.
