Today, Epic Games unveiled March Through Time, a brand new Fortnite in-game event educating players about Martin Luther King Jr’s “I have a dream” speech. This history lesson presents itself as an interactive experience centered around his speech to educate players through history.
March Through Time
March Through Time takes place in a reimagined Washington, DC, giving players possibilities to visit crucial places in the capital. Of course, they all share links in some way to the famous speech, like the United States National Mall. The Fortnite March Through Time is the result of collaboration between multiple partners, including news platform TIME or the DuSable Museum of African American History.
Gameplay-wise, multiple points of interest and activities are available. Taking inspiration from MLK’s unforgettable campaign for solidarity, collaborating will be the main goal for this Fortnite event. Furthermore, completing these quests rewards players with a unique D.C. 63 spray for their locker.

This event serves as a reminder that educating the audience and youth is crucial. Fortnite became a global gaming and esports phenomenon with pretty much no entry barrier. The game is free and most of its revenue comes through cosmetic purchases with no impact on player performances. Anyone can be a Fortnite champion if they decide to put in the hard work.
In addition, Epic Games offers a high amount of crossover events that the community is now used to seeing more. Therefore, Fortnite is the perfect place for the March Through Time event.
To make the learning more impactful, there is a campaign on Instagram, Twitter, as well as Tiktok. Using the hashtag #FNDC63, participants can share stories about how the Fortnite March Through Time event with Martin Luther King affected their lives. It helps guarantee that participants will at least effectively remember what they shared for a while.
