Epic Games have confirmed that a Fortnite and BTS crossover is in the works for a Party Royale event. Here’s everything you need to know about it. 

With Fortnite’s battle royale mode exploding in popularity since its launch, Epic Games have had a number of crossovers with different pop culture phenomenons.


TV shows like Netflix’s Stranger Things and gigantic movie franchises like Marvel’s Avengers have featured in Fortnite in one way or another, but in recent months, Epic has been reaching out into the music world.

Artists like Travis Scott, Marshmello, and Deadmau5 have all performed in Fortnite, but now the spotlight is going to be on K-Pop megastar’s BTS as they will be hosting a Party Royale event called DynaNite.

What time is the BTS event in Fortnite?

That’s right, BTS will be debuting the Choreography version of their Dynamite music video in Fortnite’s Party Royale mode. 

This event will get underway on Friday, September 25th at 8 pm EDT/1 am BST/5 pm PDT and 2 am CEST. Though, if you miss the live showing, there will be a second showing.

That replay, according to Epic, will happen a day later on Saturday, September 26th and at a much reasonable time for players in Europe. The replay is slated to start at  8 am EDT/1 pm BST/5 am PDT and 2 pm CEST. 


BTS Fortnite skins and cosmetics

On top of the event, BTS fans will be able to get their hands on some exclusive Fortnite cosmetics in the form of character skins and emotes. These will be in the Item Shop on September 23.

In addition to those cosmetics, there will likely also be a free cosmetic handed out by Epic just for attending the item. 

In the past, this has been a weapon wrap, but we’ll have to see if the devs have anything planned here. 


How to watch the BTS Fortnite event

If you want to watch the event, as we’ve already noted, it’ll happen inside the Party Royale mode. That’s different from the Battle Royale and Creative modes. 

To access it, you’ll want to select the Party Royale game mode in the lobby screen and then search when the time comes. Be sure to get in early for the live showing as you don’t want to get locked out!

  1. Load up Fortnite
  2. Enter the Battle Royale lobby screen but change the playlist to Party Royale
  3. Search for a game and wait
  4. Once inside, head over to the Main Stage area on the east of the island and enjoy!

The Main Stage is where you’ll be able to find the Fortnite x BTS event.

Obviously, you won’t be able to drop in and watch the show until the date and time that Epic has provided, so don’t try and jump the gun.

Once the new BTS skins are revealed, we’ll be sure to update this piece so that you can get a look at them beforehand.

The Fortnite Champion Series (FNCS) is back for Chapter 2 Season 4, with a return to the beloved Trios format that fans have been clamoring to see make a return. With the action kicking off on October 9, here’s everything you need to know to make sure you catch all of the action.

FNCS is making its return to trios in Season 4 for the first time since the inaugural Season X event. While it’s been a pretty poorly kept secret, there are some changes to the format from when it last appeared in August 2019.


With qualifiers now completed, we’re heading into the main stage of the FNCS Season 4 event, with a full month of competitive Fortnite on the way featuring some of the biggest names in the game competing for their cut of the prize money.

FNCS Season 4 format

FNCS Season 4 returns to the Trios format that has been used in the past, and is arguably the most popular competitive format in the tournament’s history, with past events filled with massive plays and huge battles that make for the ultimate Fortnite viewing experience.


As always, FNCS runs on a points-based scoring system, with your final placement in matches contributing to your overall score at the end of the weekend. Those who manage to win a game will receive 25 points as their reward, with the values decreasing incrementally down to 17th place, with anyone finishing below that scoring nothing. There are points for finding eliminations though, so players will be on the lookout for enemies to wipe out and add to their tally.

FNCS scoring system

  • Victory Royale: 25 Points
  • 2nd: 20 Points
  • 3rd: 16 Points
  • 4th: 14 Points
  • 5th: 13 Points
  • 6th: 12 Points
  • 7th: 11 Points
  • 8th: 10 Points
  • 9th: 9 Points
  • 10th: 8 Points
  • 11th: 7 Points
  • 12th: 6 Points
  • 13th: 5 Points
  • 14th 4 Points
  • 15th: 3 Points
  • 16th: 2 Points
  • 17th: 1 Point
  • Each Elimination: 1 Point

FNCS will be running in all the same regions it has been for the last few seasons: NA-West, NA-East, South American, EU, Middle East, Asia, and OCE, with the competition running on PC and consoles.


FNCS Season 4 will feature three weeks of qualifiers, with the top 15 teams from each week qualifying for the Grand Finals, who will be joined by the 87 teams with the highest cumulative points over the three qualifying rounds, with up to 132 teams competing in the Grand Finals on October 29.

As always, Epic Games will be hosting their own broadcast for the FNCS Season 4 events, complete with commentary and analysis to make sure you catch all the action as it happens. You can check out the official Fortnite FNCS stream on their official Twitch channel, which has been embedded below.


FNCS Season 4 dates

FNCS Season 4 will run across four weeks ⁠— three weeks of qualifiers, and one week for finals. If you want to sign yourself up, these are the dates you need to know.

  • FNCS Week 1: October 9 – October 11
  • FNCS Week 2: October 16 – October 18
  • FNCS Week 3: October 23 – October 25
  • FNCS Finals: October 29 – November 1

The first day of each week will be an open qualifier. If you make the top 33 teams, you’ll be invited to play in the next two days for a chance to make it to the Finals.


FNCS isn’t the only competition coming to Fortnite Season 4. Weekly Cash Cups for Solos and Trios will be returning, while the Dreamhack Online Open (Solo) will also take place across NA and Europe.

With players set to earn up to $111,000 for winning the whole tournament, you can rest assured that there will be plenty of action when the action kicks off.
