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.

The search for the next batch of FaZe 5 winners has dwindled down to just 20 finalists, who were unveiled by FaZe Clan on November 29 along with what’s happening next in the process.

Due to its rarity and prestige, FaZe5 always draws a lot of interest as it gives those aspiring to make a career out of gaming a chance to join the world’s biggest esports organization.

Tens of thousands of fans submitted tons of content during the competition’s open entry period, but only 100 survived the first cut when it was announced back on October 23.

Now, that list has been slashed again, down to just 20 – and all of the details for it can be found below:

FaZe 5 top-20 finalists

  • Proze – 22 years old
  • HunterTV – 20
  • Conrady – 20
  • Zenon – 9
  • Lough – 14
  • Zogoro – 22
  • Cannaestia – 35
  • K1ng – 14
  • Montoya Twinz – 20
  • Scope – 21
  • RowdyRogan – 6
  • Flea – 22
  • Faxuty – 22
  • NioRooch – 20
  • Virus – 22
  • Grant the Goat – 17
  • Milliam – 15
  • Stevie – 19
  • Cufboys – 22
  • Absorber – 17

How was the top-20 determined?

There are obviously a lot of factors that go into deciding who gets to move onto the next phase of FaZe5, including in-game skill, mastery of craft, ability to entertain, and wow-factor.

Following the top-100 announcement, those who advanced were given specific challenges to complete, including things like sending in something different than the original submission and making a ‘day in the life’ video.

They were also required to put forth an example of how they’d promote G FUEL, since all five winners will receive a sponsorship with the brand. That was followed by a collaborative challenge, one that paired up similar participants and required them to submit a single piece of content featuring them both in some way.

What’s next in FaZe 5?

Now that the top-20 has been announced, the next step is for them to complete another series of challenges in order to help the org decide who will be crowned a winner.

As things stand, there will not be another in-between cutoff from now until the winners get revealed, so whatever these 20 finalists get asked to do will hold a lot of weight in determining who survives the final stage.

Here’s a reminder of what’s on the line:

  • Nissan Kicks SUV (only for first-place)
  • $20,000 signing bonus
  • G FUEL endorsement contract for 3-6 months

FaZe have not yet announced when the five victors will be unveiled, but if they follow the previous FaZe5, there will be an individual video released for each winner – one per day until all five are made public.
