The highly anticipated live in-game event featuring EDM DJ Marshmello performing in Fortnite Battle Royale is almost here, and here’s everything you need to know to not miss a single second of it.

Earlier this week, the popular music artist announced that an in-game version of his person will be making an appearance in Fortnite for a live performance.

Players will be able to load into Fortnite during the concert and get to see the Marshmello character up close and personal while he’s playing some of his most popular tracks.

With just a day to go until the highly anticipated event takes place, Marshmello’s voice was unexpectedly heard booming throughout the Fortnite map, probably as the last major Easter egg before the big day.

 

When will it happen?

The Fortnite x Marshmello concert is set to take place on Saturday, February 2 at 11:00 AM PT / 2:00 PM ET / 7:00 PM GMT.

All indications point to this being a one-time event so players will definitely want to make sure their game is fully set and ready to go by that time.

Where will it happen?

According to the announcement posters that have appeared in-game, the concert will be taking place at Pleasant Park, and a large stage is already being built next to the football field for the occasion.

In fact, Marshmello, who is in the middle of his global tour right now, has added Pleasant Park to his official tour schedule two weeks before going to perform in India.

Marshmello has added Pleasant Park to his tour schedule, confirming his in-game appearance on February 2.

 

How can I watch?

Although previous one-time events in Forntite have not had a centralized live-stream, the Marshmello concert, considering its nature, could be streamed on the official Fortnite content channels.

If not, players will have to either load into the game and watch it there or find a streamer broadcasting it on their Twitch or YouTube channel.

For your convenience, here are just a selection of the top streamers broadcasting the event.

What else can we expect?

According to leaks uncovered by data miners, Epic Games will be setting up a special Limited Time Mode called ‘Party at Pleasant Park’ specifically for the Marshmello concert.

The description of the LTM reveals that respawn will be enabled, which removes the possibility of players ruining others’ experience by eliminating them in the middle of the event.

It is not yet known whether this LTM will be the only way to view the concert, or if players will also have the choice of loading into the regular default modes but taking the risk of being eliminated.

For content creators who are planning on live-streaming the concert or making videos of it but are afraid of violating copyright rules, Epic Games have announced that they’ve worked with Marshmello and his team to ensure that no copyright strikes will be made against those posting the event.

To further hype up the event in the days leading up to it, a lot of Marshmello-themed content has been release in the game, including several cosmetic items, challenges, and more.

Be sure to follow us @Dexerto and keep an eye on the Dexerto Fortnite page as we will keep you up-to-date with all information relating to the Marshmello event as well as provide ways to view the concert once it goes live.

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.

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.
