Fortnite’s Party Royale concert and movie series continue, now with a slew of Christopher Nolan movies and some performances from popular artists like Diplo, Young Thug, and Noah Cyrus.

Fortnite’s Travis Scott concert set a record with 12.3 million concurrent players in attendance. Then the game made history once again by premiering Christopher Nolan’s “Tenet” trailer in-game, a first for a high-profile Hollywood film. Next on the agenda: Nolan movie watch parties and various concerts.

Party Royale is a game mode dedicated specifically to virtually attending and enjoying live entertainment. The Travis Scott Astronomical concert showed just how captivating that can be on a community scale, while the Tenet trailer proved potential for video content.

While Epic Games’ battle royale won’t be featuring a true album or full film premiere just yet, this weekend sets the stage for both with a live concert of Diplo’s latest album, “Diplo Presents Thomas Wesley, Chapter 1: Snake Oil,” with guests Young Thug and Noah Cyrus, as well as streams of Nolan’s films Inception, Batman Begins, and Prestige.

Arrows point to where the Fortnite Party Royale Big Screen is located for watch parties.

If you’d rather some vigilante justice instead of Nolan’s psychological thrillers, then you’ll just have to figure out a VPN for countries like Brazil, India, or the Maldives—which are some of the few locations airing Batman Begins.

These events will likely dictate the future of Fortnite’s entertainment space, as the game continues to push the envelope for gaming collaborations. 

In Netflix’s 2018 earnings report, they noted that Fortnite is one of their biggest competitors. Two years later, the game is playing with the potential to exclusively premiere both movies and concerts.

When is Halo coming to Fortnite? Skin release date, Winterfest, more

A Fortnite leaker has hinted at when the Halo skin and limited-time mode should be released, but the exact day is still slightly shrouded in mystery. 

Crossovers in Fortnite have been great for fans who want to combine two of their favorite things. In the past, we’ve seen everything from Batman to Stranger Things to a full-blown Marvel-themed season. 

In Chapter 2, Season 5, two more crossovers have joined the battle royale party. The Mandalorian from Star Wars is one of the battle pass skins, while Kratos from God of War has also released as a part of a cosmetics bundle. 

Leaks have suggested that more and more crossovers are coming, with Halo seemingly being the next one to arrive – bringing a Master Chief skin, as well as a few other cosmetics too.

Leaks have also claimed that there will be a Halo-themed, Red vs Blue limited-time mode – somewhat similar to the Marvel Endgame LTM where players were either part of the Avengers or Thanos’ army of minions. 

With Kratos getting his moment in the spotlight as of now, fans are desperate to know when Master Chief and the Halo crossover will take his place. 

Well, according to Fortnite leaker FNBRUnreleased, the Halo crossover is set to happen when the V15.10 update is released. As of writing, there is no concrete date for that, but it shouldn’t be too far away either.

When is Fortnite’s v15.10 update and Winterfest?

The V15.10 update would also, likely, be the patch to bring in the Winterfest celebrations back to Fortnite, so, we’d probably see some map changes too with more snow on the map. 

Last year, Winterfest started on December 18, which was a Wednesday. If Epic Games opt for a similar date this year, we could maybe see it around December 16-17, as they fall on a Wednesday and Thursday.

Ultimately, that is up to Epic, and we’ll just have to wait until they release an update, but hopefully, it won’t be too far away.
