Stark Industries has arrived in Fortnite, and Tony Stark’s entire campus is available for players to explore. Fortnite’s latest patch adds the genius Marvel superhero’s high-tech office as a new area on the map, along with a few other additions, including new AI-controlled enemies and loot.

As the Marvel-themed Fortnite Chapter 2 season 4 continues, more and more locations from the comics are making their way to the island, and this time around, that means Tony Stark’s headquarters. Stark Industries is on top of a giant piece of land that appears to have been teleported directly from some other corner of the Marvel Universe. The new piece of the Fortnite island is in the northeast part of the island, and has replaced Frenzy Farm.

Stark Industries isn’t the only addition to the Fortnite island this week, though. There’s also a fresh horde of Galactus’ robot henchmen. These new enemies are now swarming the island, but they also have a secret: If you kill them, they’ll deactivate and turn into special weapons. But be careful — if you don’t pick them up in their weapon form, they’ll explode a short time after they drop.

Speaking of explosions, a few new Avengers’ powers have come to Battle Royale this week as well. Players can now harness the power of Thor’s hammer with Mjolnir Strike, or use Iron Man’s Repulsor Gauntlets to shoot energy blasts and boost into the air. Like the other hero powers that are in the game right now, both of these can be found as random loot around the map.

Finally, this week’s patch also adds a new game mode called Marvel Knockout. Similar to Fortnite’s fan-favorite mode Operation: Knockout, Marvel Knockout tasks Fortnite teams with taking each other out using super powers to see who can be the last one standing. While most of this patch’s additions to the game are likely to stick around for most of the season, Marvel Knockout is a limited time mode, so it likely won’t last much longer than a week.
