All the news of Fortnite Endgame, the new limited game mode of Fortnite, as well as the rest of the adjustments that come with update 8.50. If you liked controlling Thanos last year with the Infinity War crossover, you should know that the crazy titan returns to the Epic game.

New week, new Fortnite update . Epic Games has not released an intermediate update this week (which is what it would touch), but the patch 8.50 of Fortnite, which comes with news in which game modes are concerned, as well as various fixes on Fortnite systems and, how no, a new union with the Avengers.

Avengers Endgame is the new great Disney movie, the one that will close the events that started in 2008 and that left us hallucinating last year with Infinity War. And yes, we have already seen Avengers Endgame and we tell you our feelings in the criticism .

Going back to Fortnite patch 8.50 , as expected, there is new content related to The Avengers. Over the past few days, Epic has been leaving clues to the arrival of Avengers Endgame in Fortnite , and we finally know what it is about.

Considering Thanos’ success in Fortnite in 2018 , this union was more than natural, and below we tell you all the details of the new update 8.50 of Fortnite.

Fortnite Battle Royale

Although Fortnite currently has three game modes, the most popular is still Fortnite Battle Royale. It’s where Epic’s greatest efforts are concentrated in each update, and that shows.

Next, we leave you all the Fortnite news detailed on the Epic blog .

LIMITED TIME MODE: FORTNITE ENDGAME

Thanos and his chitauri have invaded the island of Battle Royale in search of the six Infinity Stones.

Mode details

  • In Endgame, a group of heroes fight to stop Thanos and his chitauri before they get the six Infinity Stones.
  • Both teams will reappear when eliminated until the other side completes its objective.
  • The first side is the team of heroes. Heroes will reappear when eliminated until the enemy team has found all six Infinity Stones.
  • Heroes start with a treasure map that tells them where the mythical items from the Avengers are located.
  • The rest of the Avengers’ items are found in chests scattered across the map.
  • The goal of the hero team is to destroy the Chitauri army and defeat Thanos.
  • For its part, the Thanos team is made up of the Chitauri invaders and Thanos himself.
  • The Chitauri invaders begin the game with a powerful laser rifle, anti-structure grenades, and a thruster that allows them to briefly leap into the air.
  • The first chitauri to retrieve an Infinity gem will transform into Thanos.
  • Thanos has a powerful punch, a destructive beam, and the ability to soar into the air and then smash whatever is in his way as he falls.
  • If Thanos is eliminated from the game, another Chitauri will become him after a short period of time (unless Thanos is the last one left).
  • If Thanos and his chitauri find the six Infinity Stones, the heroes will not be able to reappear.
  • The objective of Thanos and his army is to find the gems and eliminate the rest of the heroes.

Furthermore, gems have different powers:

  • Reality Stone (red) = health and duplicate shields (1000-> 2000)
  • Soul Gem (orange) = activated siphon (grants shields only to Thanos)
  • Mind Gem (yellow) = double jump height
  • Space Gem (blue) = size of area of ​​effect of tripled landing, damage x6
  • Time Gem (green) = big boost added to each hit, damage x3
  • Power Gem (purple) = laser damage x6

WEAPONS AND OBJECTS

Bug fixes and improvements

  • The Hold-To-Change functionality is now confirmed by releasing the Use button instead of holding it down.
  • This avoids the mistake of accidentally changing.
  • If a player is eliminated by taking fall damage inside a vehicle, the last player to damage this vehicle will be the one who receives the elimination credit.
  • Hit markers have been re-enabled so that their authority depends on the server instead of the client. This will avoid occasions when players saw the markers but did no damage.
  • Players who restarted within cracks teleported to the sky, but did not enter parachute mode.
  • Vehicles were not propelled away from the reset van.
  • The collision of the reset van did not affect some vehicles, allowing them to hide inside it.
  • The yellow “invulnerability” effect did not appear on players who revived with the reset van.
  • The sound of the reboot card appearing continued to play even if the player disconnected.
  • Inventory items can no longer be dropped while inside weapons vehicles to avoid multiple camera bugs.
  • Traps were sometimes placed in the middle of a square instead of against a wall when using Constructor pro.
  • When exiting vehicles, the equip animation will now always play before weapons can be fired.
  • This prevents the bug that caused players to occasionally see themselves shooting right after leaving a vehicle before the server had time to record the shot.
  • Removal information will no longer display the “removed by an ally” message if an ally interrupts a player’s restart animation.
  • Drop damage taken when using a thruster (in supported limited-time modes) after launching from a pirate cannon.
  • Players could not avoid fall damage using a flintlock pistol while crouching.
  • Players were unable to view the nameplates of the group members’ reset cards in the UI.

COMPETITIVE

  • New Tournament – April 27-28: Week 3 of the Fortnite World Cup Online Qualifiers ($ 1 million in prizes!)
  • Solo game mode. To participate in this event, both players must have reached the Champions League in the arena. Region lock is in effect. Players will only be able to participate in the qualifier of a single server region during each week of the online qualifiers. The server region entered in the first game of the tournament for that weekend will be the one assigned to the player throughout the weekend.
  • Streaming replays (currently only available on PC). Tournament Game History has been added, which can be viewed by selecting a player from the leaderboards. You can see the replays of each game in which the player has participated. Added the ability to watch live games during tournaments by selecting a player on the leaderboards.
  • Arena mode and tournaments will now record profile stats for solo, duo, and squad categories rather than as MTLs do.

  • Players in the arena saw themselves incorrectly demoted to a lower division after losing a high. This was only a visual error and now all high values ​​and divisions unlocked are displayed correctly again.
  • In-game tournament posters displayed certain events incorrectly, warning that they started in “2 days”.

Bug fixes and improvements

  • Various game sounds, such as shooting, footsteps, and reloading, will not be activated again at erroneous or random times. This generated “ghost” sounds that were heard when there was nothing to cause those sound effects.
  • Fixed a bug that caused certain elements to not have a sound loop when they should have it.
