Fortnite is an incredibly popular third-person shooter from Epic Games. You may recognize the developer from titles like Bulletstorm and Gears of War. The game has garnered unprecedented popularity in the past year due to its free-to-play nature and expressive gameplay. However, the team isn't resting on its laurels. New content keeps on making its way to Fortnite, and the latest addition is an Avengers: Endgame tie-in.

Avengers: Endgame hits theaters on April 26, but on April 25, you can play as the Avengers in Fortnite. It's unclear how many characters are featured or if their weapons will make an appearance. From the teaser image posted by the official Fortnite Twitter account, it looks like Captain America and his versatile shield will be part of the game.

It's great to see that Fortnite keeps on getting more content. This is the reason millions of players keep on coming back for more. A few months ago, Epic Games stated that the title featured over 8 million concurrent players. These are staggering figures to say the least.

What do you want to see out of the Avengers: Endgame Fortnite event? Let us know. We're hoping that Thanos makes an appearance so it'll be a battle for the ages. However, only time will tell. Epic Games should reveal more details in the coming days.
