Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins revealed that his partner for the Fortnite World Cup Pro-Am, Marshmello, would be putting on a surprise show later in the weekend.
Ninja made the announcement during the Pro-Am’s Opening ceremony, and according to him it’s going to be “absolutely amazing.”
If it’s anything like the concert that Marshmello put on live in Fortnite itself, fans could be in for a wild time.
Marshmello’s live Fortnite concert in February was arguably the largest live music performance ever done through a video game and drew in more than 10 million players.
All combat was disabled for the roughly 10 minute performance and players were even allowed to fly around during Marshmello’s set.
The Pleasant Park concert turned out to be a massive success for Fortnite, so it’s no surprise Epic brought him back for the World Cup.
