Fortnite on Twitter: "A new week, a new patch! v4.2 is gliding in May 15, with downtime beginning at 4am ET (08:00
Taking to Twitter, Epic Games confirmed the update would be delayed which will affect some of the new challenges, writing: 'We've discovered an issue that's going to delay the release of v4.2'. Infinity Gauntlet takes the basic battle royale premise and puts a wild new spin on it that sees Thanos leaping around the map and also dancing. Downtime begins at 4am ET (08:00 GMT),' Epic Games said in a statement overnight.
Patch notes for Fortnite update 4.2 have not been revealed yet.
The 4.2 patch notes will be released along with the update as the server downtime kicks into gear - so you'll have time to study up while Battle Royale assumes its next form.
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.
Did you play Thanos during the limited time mashup and what do you think of crossovers like this in games?
The addition of the Burst Assault Rifle will mark the first new balistic weapon added to Fortnite Battle Royale since the Light Machine Gun, which boasted a much higher fire rate and ammo capacity than the current Assault Rifles, at the cost of range and accuracy.
Currently, the only official information we have about the Burst Assault Rifle is that it will come in both Epic and Legendary rarities - this seems to follow the example of the silenced pistols and heavy shotguns, which were two similarly enhanced versions of weapons already in the game.
Therefore, if you want to kill some more players with Thanos, it might just be a good idea to cancel your plans for this evening and dedicate it to Fortnite instead.
