An Entertainment Weekly article sheds a little more light on how the mode will work. The game will play out as usual, with one difference, the Infinity Gauntlet will spawn on the map. Whoever finds and equips it will transform into Thanso, “wielding all the power that comes with him.”
Looks like all the superhero theming Fortnite has been doing for Season 4 was leading to this moment.
