Fortnite is now planning to host a big no-combat Party Royale event with live music from DJs including Steve Aoki, deadmau5 and Dillon Francis on May 8, following a string of highly successful in-game concerts featuring rapper Travis Scott and DJ Diplo.
Fortnite’s creator Epic Games, an American video game producer and software publisher, revealed Thursday that the Party Royale Premiere would be played on May 8 at 9 pm ET (9 am, May 9, Malaysia) to celebrate over 350 million registered players.
The free battle royale game Fortnite is actually one of the most popular video games and millions of fans are expected to benefit from the upcoming squad.
As coronavirus lockout initiatives hold millions of homes around the world, Fortnite claims players in April spent more than 3.2 billion hours in playing.
The one-hour game, which seeks to hold players involved, will feature back-to-back musical sets on the Main Stage big screen and be retransmitted on May 9 the next day.
There are no weapons in the limited-time Party Royale mode that premiered last week on a friendly island that players hang out on.
Nevertheless, there will always be “many things to do and areas to visit,” the creators of the game said, referring to Skydive Rift’s aerial challenges, boat races, and objects like the new Paint Launcher to catch.
In late April, more than 27 million players watched a massively successful Travis Scott in-game gaming concert online, a new milestone for concurrent online players. There was no combat, firing or construction at the point, either.
Video game developers were searching for new ways to plan real-world activities that had been postponed because of the pandemic. Only last week, it shelved two big athletic competitions worth tens of millions of dollars in prize money.
Epic Games had recently declared the cancelation of all physical activities for the remainder of 2020, including the Fortnite World Cup, while Valve has halted The Regional, an event for the Dota (Defense of the Ancients) 2 fight arena video game scheduled to take place in Stockholm in August.
