"Fortnite" is once again collaborating with Marvel, just in time for the arrival of "Avengers: Endgame."
A new limited time mode called "Fortnite Endgame" was added to the game on Thursday that has players taking on Thanos and his army of Chitauri. Just like in the "Avengers" movies, Thanos is on the hunt for the Infinity Stones.
Rather than the gaggle of heroes who normally take on Thanos, it's up to you and your friends to tackle Marvel's meanest alien with some iconic weapons: Thor's hammer Stormbreaker, Captain America's shield, Iron Man's suit, and Hawkeye's bow and arrow.
A variety of stuff can be unlocked in the new mode, from sprays to a glider that looks like the Quinjet ship that the Avengers fly around in.

It's not clear how long this mode will last, but it is clear that it's only available for a limited time.
"Fortnite" maker Epic Games teased the new mode all week — and in doing so, offered a closer look at the iconic weapons being added to the game.
Here's Thor's new hammer, Stormbreaker:

"Fortnite Endgame" is available now on all platforms.
