On April 24, Travis Scott’s Fortnite concert broke attendance records, showing that video games are a relevant platform for artists to express themselves. Although fans are facing more disappointing news regarding live event cancelations, they look forward to Epic Games’ collaborations. To answer their wishes, Epic Games unveiled in an official post today the details regarding the Fortnite Party Royale premiere event. Famous music artists like Steve Aoki, Dillon Francis, and Deadmau5 will be joining this Fortnite event. Of course, many activities are scheduled and cosmetics will be available for participants.
Steve Aoki, Dillion Francis, and Deadmau5 on Fortnite
The Fortnite Party Royale starts on May 8. However, if fans can’t make it, Epic Games plans to broadcast the event a second time on May 9. Because the Party Royale island will be the place to be for players interested in the show, fans can attend it whenever they want during the Fortnite event.
Of the three artists gathered for the event, Deadmau5 holds the most fame. The Canadian DJ, known for his recognizable mask, scored massive hits with his single “Strobe”. Like Deadmau5, Steve Aoki is a famous DJ and entertainer. His collaborations with Afrojack and Linkin Park are recognized around the world as hits. Last but not least, Dillon Francis is an electronic music specialist with a successful career, shooting up in popularity in recent years. These three professionals will definitely put on a show for fans to remember.
Fortnite Party Royale Mode and Premiere
A week ago, Epic Games introduced the Party Royale mode, showcasing the social aspect of the game. This mode gives players the opportunity to enjoy themselves in non-violent activities because of the idea to “leave your weapons and mats behind”. Skydiving and leaping boats over ramps will be a part of the program, which means these features will be available on a new map specific to this Fortnite Party Royale mode and limited-time emotes will be usable only on this map. Epic Games invited the biggest names in the music industry to create the perfect Fortnite Party Royale premiere event.
If Epic Games creates an event that fans never forget, they succeed in strengthening Fortnite’s community. Most importantly, the launch will be a determining factor as to this game mode’s reception.
