In other Fortnite news, Epic has added yet another dance emote. This one is called the Chicken Emote, and it really looks like Gob's wonderful dance from Arrested Development. You can see the dance in action in the video above. As with other Fortnite emotes and skins, the Chicken Emote will only be available for a limited time.
Tomorrow's Fortntie patch appears to be the one that will remove the Infinity Gauntlet mode from the game. This mode gives you a chance to play as Avengers: Infinity War bad guy Thanos. A recent patch made him easier to kill, though he remains extremely deadly.
