It appears that one last major Easter egg has been dropped in honor of EDM DJ Marshmello’s collaboration with Fortnite Battle Royale.

With just a day before the popular music artist is set to appear in the actual Fortnite game and host a concert, his voice was heard mysteriously booming from one corner of the map to the other.

“What’s up Fortnite, it’s Marshmello,” the voice was heard saying. “Can’t wait to see you guys tomorrow!”

There appeared to be no actual source of the voice as it almost seemed as though Marshmello was speaking from heavens for everyone to hear him equally.

Apparently this was not the first time Marshmello has spoke to the entire map as some were also tweeting about how they heard the same voice very quietly saying “Mic check, one, two” at some point on January 31. 

The popular DJ himself also commented on the clip, which has gone viral on Twitter, offering his own thoughts as to the source of his own mysterious voice. 

This could very well be the final Marshmello-themed Easter egg dropped by Epic Games as the DJ’s highly anticipated in-game concert event is set to take place on February 2 starting at 11 AM PT / 2 PM ET. 

In the days leading up to this event, Epic have released a lot of themed content in Fortnite, including special challenges, cosmetic items, map changes, and more.

Tottenham Hotspur player Dele Alli has roasted England international teammate Kieran Trippier over his gaming skills, bluntly calling him “really bad” at Fortnite.

Alli has recently become a global ambassador for Excel, one of the 10 League of Legends teams in the LEC and a powerhouse of UK esports, having made clear his love of gaming in recent years with his streams on Twitch.

Dele sat down to talk about his love of gaming with Excel, discussing FIFA, Fortnite, and some of the other top footballers he’s played with — but had a few less-than-savoury thoughts on his former Spurs teammate’s abilities.

After being asked who’s “not very good at gaming,” Trippier fell immediately into the firing line.

Dele joins a growing list of footballers getting involved in the esports scene in one way or another.

With a laugh at his friend’s misfortune, Dele revealed that the former Spurs man, unfortunately, falls into that category.

“Kieran Trippier was very late to gaming” Dele said, offering his former teammate somewhat of a lifeline. Before cracking up laughing again, the star added: “He jumped on it and he’s got a lot better but, at the start…”

Dele continued: “He joined Fortnite when we had all been playing for a while, and it was the first time he had played with a controller… so if you tell him to press X, he wouldn’t know which was X.”

Not content with letting his name be slandered in the gaming world, Kieran himself quickly responded with some laughing emojis, backing himself up by clarifying that he actually “wasn’t that bad,” though it doesn’t sound great for the full back.

Now, surely, fans will be desperate to see Dele and Kieran go head-to-head with one another to see if the latter is really as bad as he sounds.
