Avengers: Infinity War is the biggest movie in the world right now, so it's kinda fitting that it would do a crossover with one of the biggest games in the world. Fortnite is about to kick off an "Infinity Gauntlet Limited Time Mashup," which is a standard 100-person battle royale match that gives players the opportunity to turn into Thanos himself.
The mashup came to be as Infinity War director Joe Russo talked about how he and the team would take breaks during editing the movie to play Fortnite: Battle Royale. So he gave Epic Games a call, and the rest is history. Yes, that's our headlining story for today, but this is GameSpot Daily, and we've got a bunch of other stories coming at you in 30 minutes or less.
Speaking of battle royale, modder Theaetik made a mod for Grand Theft Auto 5 that combines "roguelites and battle royale elements." You have to move from zone-to-zone, while battling AI enemies. Defeating the AI can earn you kill streaks and a higher score. There are also a bunch of power-ups, including teleportation and slow-mo. We go more in-depth with the mod in the video above.
In other news, Nintendo has commented on whether it thinks the Switch can surpass the Wii's astronomical sales. Nintendo doesn't believe the benchmark for the Switch is to pass the Wii; instead, it's whether the company can "adapt and respond to changes in the market and strive to continue selling Nintendo Switch as long as possible." Nintendo also talked about its expectations for the Switch's second year, and we go into all of that in today's episode.
And last but definitely not least, Rockstar has released a bunch of new screenshots of Red Dead Redemption 2, some of which feature the first game's beloved protagonist John Marston. The developer also announced when we'll hear about "special editions" and more.
That's what you'll find in this episode, but be sure to tune in every day of the week at 11 AM PST/2 PM EST/7 PM BST/4 AM AEST for another episode of GameSpot Daily. We cover the most exciting gaming news in 30 minutes or less or we'll have Thanos to answer to.
