After the success of their last concert with Travis Scott, Epic Games has announced that the now-350 million players of Fortnite are invited to attend yet another in-game concert, this time featuring Steve Aoki, Dillon Francis and deadmau5 coming on Friday, May 8 in the game’s Party Royale Mode.
Over 12 million players of Fortnite partook in the game’s ‘Astronomical Experience’ featuring Scott toward the end of last month as well as their concert that was held with Diplo earlier this month in Party Royale.
One thing that will be missing from Friday’s concert is the usual combat, which is what comes to mind for most people when they think about Fortnite. In a blog posted by Epic, the company said that with the Party Royale Mode, “There are no weapons or mats in Party Royale –– it’s all about just hanging out and having fun. No Sweat. All Chill.”
On Wednesday, a developer for Epic Games also announced that Fortnite has surpassed the 350 million registered players mark, having added approximately 100 million players since March 2019 and players playing for about 3.2 billion hours just last month.
The concert is set to start on Friday at 9:00 p,m. ET/6:00 p.m. PT, with an encore performance on Saturday, May 9 at 2:00 p.m. ET/11:00 a.m. PT.
