The upcoming Fortnite season, which begins on August 27, may be a full-season collaboration with Marvel, as suggested in an Epic Games teaser released Friday.
However, due to Epic Games’ public dispute with Apple over the iPhone manufacturer’s app store policies, Epic Games is currently unable to update Fortnite on (iOS).
This means that iPhone and iPad players will miss the new season unless something changes between (Epic Games) and Apple before Thursday.
Apple withdrew the game from the App Store on August 13 after Epic Games added a direct payment system to the game, which conflicts with App Store rules.
Google also pulled the game from its store, but given that Android is open source, the game can be downloaded from (Epic Games) and other stores.
(Epic Games) then sued Apple, released a short in-game clip mocking one of Apple’s most famous commercials, and began telling iOS players that they would not be able to play the next season because Apple withdrew Fortnite from the store.
The Fortnite and Marvel collaboration won’t be the first of its kind, as Marvel characters have appeared in Fortnite several times before.
The Avengers characters appeared within the game in 2018 and 2019, and many Marvel superheroes appeared in the game, including (Black Widow), (Star-Lord), (Deadpool), (Captain America) and (X-Force). members Cable, (Psylocke), and (Domino).
Fortnite has also featured (DC Comics) characters, including (Aquaman), (Batman), (Catwoman) and (Harley Quinn), and (Epic Games) will sell a feature pack (Joker) and (Poison Ivy) in November.
In 2018 there was a limited-time mode in which you could play the fictional super-villain Thanos if you got the Infinity Gauntlet from somewhere on the map.
On the occasion of Avengers: Endgame, last year you could have used Avengers weapons against Thanos in another limited-time mode.
The character appearing in the new teaser appears to be (Thor) in the style of his 2020 comic book series.
(Epic Games) has made several social media teasers in the past ahead of the new Fortnite season.
More hints should appear in the coming days for other characters likely to appear in the hugely popular Epic Games game.
