The reactions to the EndGame and Fortnite X Avengers content have been a mixed bag. While some fans are genuinely enjoying the new additions, Ninja feels that Epic just missed the mark by a hair.
Fortnite X Avengers started on April 25th and brought a measurable amount of new content to Fortnite. A new Black Widow skin, the EndGame LTM, and other drops were made available to players.
More cosmetics are on the way from Marvel, but the overall reception of the LTM mode has been a little 50-50. While it does offer some excitement and mass scale combat, the mode could be better with some improvements/changes.
Ninja is disappointed in the EndGame LTM
Ninja isn’t the only voice in the Fortnite community, but he is the biggest and, at times, the loudest. His words carry weight due to the immense following he has.
With the release of the EndGame LTM, Ninja had a few words to say about the reveal. Mainly, his criticism is aimed at the lack of superheroes within the new experience.
Ninja began the day playing with ActionJaxonBTW and when his friend pushed him to give an opinion on the mode…Ninja simply gave a few sarcastic responses.
This isn’t totally surprising as Ninja is a competitive player of Fortnite. The EndGame game mode is about as far from a competitive experience as one can get. Explosions, flying, and random Infinity Stone spawns make it a “just for fun” experience.
Ninja isn’t one to blindly hate of content and did give a little more explanation for his feelings.
While the mode does offer the introduction of the Chitauri army and Thanos, it lacks what a lot of fans were expecting. Superheroes…
Iron Man, Thor, Loki, Scarlet Witch, Hulk, Black Panther, etc. are nowhere to be seen. It’s understandable as this is a “crossover” and the Fortnite characters as technically the superheroes.
But it would have been cooler to fly around as Iron Man or tear up the map using Scarlet Witch’s immense power.
ActionJaxon said “Is it bad that when I saw the fish hand holding Stormbreaker that I was kind of a little disappointed?,” to which Ninja gave another sarcastic “A little?!?” response.
The EndGame isn’t a ‘bad’ gamemode, but it is a letdown as Epic did inadvertently hype up the release of superheroes. With this said, Marvel and Epic are working together to release skins based on MCU characters.
MCU Character Skins Released
The first Marvel skin released on April 25th was the Black Widow skin.
The cosmetic isn’t exactly like the Black Widow from the MCU films, but clearly resembles her figure and fighting outfit. The uniform also includes the red ‘hourglass’ symbol which can be found more commonly in the comics or on the underbelly of a black widow spider.
Another skin has already been leaked before its release. Star Lord of the Guardians of the Galaxy seems to be on the way to the Item Shop.
A new leak revealed the visual style of the new skin. Some players have not been overly happy with the leaked reveal, however. The resemblance isn’t too far off in our opinion.
