There appears to have been a game-changing glitch in the Fortnite x Avengers Limited Time Mode of the popular Fortnite: Battle Royale video game.

Taking to Twitter, Epic Games confirmed the update would be delayed which will affect some of the new challenges, writing: 'We've discovered an issue that's going to delay the release of v4.2'. We'll find out more once the update officially hits tomorrow morning.

But in their latest Fortnite server update on Tuesday the Fortnite team said: "v4.2 is releasing tomorrow, May 16".

The news of the new Burst Assault Rifle hasn't been publicized through Fortnite's various social media accounts, but those who have been playing Fortnite recently spotted the new weapon included in the "New Updates" section when you log in. There hasn't been an update on when this downtime will now take place, though Epic has stated that it will be informing players when the developer has a time nailed down.

Discussions to include Thanos in Fortnite actually came about due to Infinity War co-directors Anthony and Joe Russo being big fans of the game.

With Season 4 coming out around the same time as the new Avengers movie, this crossover doesn't seem all that unusual.
