The Fortnite X Avengers crossover event for the EndGame release is fast approaching and Epic Games keeps teasing the upcoming content. The latest tease involves Thor and his mighty new Stormbreaker axe.
Earlier this week, Epic Games finally officially revealed the upcoming Fortnite X Avengers crossover event. They did not reveal any major details of the event, but did release a teaser image along with a release date.
The event will begin on April 25th, just one day before the release of the new Avengers movie. Many theories about the content delivery have surfaced including the peculiar similarity between the Loot Lake vault and Captain America’s shield.
New Fortnite X Avengers Teaser Image
Epic Games released a new teaser image for the Fortnite X Avengers event on April 23rd. In the morning hours of Tuesday, a tweet was sent out revealing another hero/weapon coming to Fortnite.
The image clearly features Thor’s new Stormbreaker axe from Avengers: Infinity War. The handle is made from Groot’s arm and the metal was forged with the heat of a neutron star.
The weapon seen in the movie gave Thor immense power and allowed him to easily to wipe out massive portions of Thanos’ army. Thor even managed to nearly kill Thanos using the axe.
The axe might feature similar mechanics in-game for Fortnite. Players may be able to channel the power of lightning from the sky using this weapon. Perhaps a slam attack is in order as well.
Like with the shield of Captain America, we expect that the Stormbreaker will not be featured in the core Fortnite experience. Rather, these new weapons will most likely be featured only in an LTM.
