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.
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.
