EDM DJ Marshmello has confirmed that he will be performing at Fortnite’s Pleasant Park on Saturday, February 2, and the developers are making sure that no one will miss the show.

Like previous in-game events, the Marshmello performance will be one-off thing, so if you want to see the action in real time for yourself, you will have to log on to the game at 2pm EST on Saturday.

The problem though, is that during previous events, some players have taken the opportunity while opponents’ have their guard down, to mow people down for some free eliminations.

The stage has started going up for the concert.

During the rocket launch in Season 3 for example, one opportunistic player managed to break the record for most eliminations in a match, by destroying the platform almost the entire lobby was standing on to watch the event.

Epic Games have managed to work around these problems to an extent in later in-game events, with player made temporarily invincible during the ‘butterfly’ event for example.

To avoid missing out on the Marshmello concert, it looks like players will be able to enter a special Limited Time Mode (LTM) which will have respawning enabled, so that if someone tries to ruin the fun, you’ll simply spawn back in.

@JH9Details of the LTM were discovered in-game ahead of the event.

The LTM will be called ‘Party at Pleasant Park’. It’s not known how long the concert will last, but presumably once it’s over the LTM will be removed, unless the concert is to be replayed for a certain period.

Along with the concert itself, the Marshmello event, also known as ‘Festivus’, has its own set of unique challenges, which have been discovered by leakers.

Did The Rock just tease he’s getting a Fortnite skin?

After an appearance by a very cartoony-looking float during the Macy’s Thanksgivings Day Parade, The Rock hinted that he may end up getting a skin in the popular battle royale game Fortnite, although he’s being a bit vague. 

The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade floats are known their pop culture references. Between Pikachu, Goku, and others making appearances, it shouldn’t really come as a surprise that one based on the popular young Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson meme a few years back would make its way into the 2020 version of the parade.

Seemingly because it’s a float, the giant balloon itself seems to be a cartoon representation of the meme, rather than a hyper-realistic one. After one person seemed to point out that it looks a bit like a Fortnite skin, the former wrestler now actor responded in a way that’s raising a few eyebrows.

In response to the comment about his float looking like a Fortnite character, The Rock simply responded with “way ahead of you” and “great minds”. This obviously caused a few people to pause and ask themselves if he just hinted at a Fortnite skin.

Unfortunately, we don’t have any official comment from Epic but the comment is certainly suspicious. While one could make the argument that The Rock was saying that he also had the same thought before the original tweeter, the wink face emoji seen after the tweet is a bit peculiar. Surely he would know not to put that kind of statement out with that emoji unless he meant to hint at it, right?

It’s also a bit odd that he also responded to someone who tweeted that they “shouldn’t give them any ideas”, meaning he could have been totally knowledgable in what he’s doing.

His inclusion in the game also wouldn’t be surprising. Fortnite is known for its crossovers at this point, even allowing for some Icon Series skins based on celebrities like Ninja and others. It could also be a part of a larger WWE crossover, considering there’s a plethora of characters there to make skins out of.

Still, until nothing official is announced, take this with a massive grain of salt. Here’s hoping that if it is real that it will get announced soon, however.
