Teaming up for ‘Rift Tour’ concert series, with an Ariana Grande skin and Back Bling forming a part of the series.
Epic Games and Fortnite have enlisted Ariana Grande for its upcoming Rift Tour concert series. She’s kicking off the tour on 6 August, with a full weekend of events planned to ensure that Fortnite fans of all ages and time zones can have a chance to check it out.
Ariana is the latest musician to host an in-game performances after Travis Scott and J Balvin, followed by two more performances on August 7 and 8 so players from other time zones can join. Epic Games has reportedly asked fans to tune in at least an hour before the show starts and will go live half an hour before the set starts.
These in-game Fortnite events tend to be cool experiences where the game piece of the experience falls by the wayside as fans gather to just soak in the vibe. Epic’s decision to stage multiple shows over the course of the weekend, and at wildly different times, should give everyone a chance to hop in and watch things “live.” Just make sure your copy of Fortnite is up-to-date well in advance.
In celebration of the Rift Tour, players will have the chance to purchase an Ariana Grande skin and a Piggy Smallz Back Bling, which will be available in the Item Shop on August 4 at 8 p.m. EST. Take a look at the teaser trailer below of the Ariana Grande skin and Piggy Smallz Back Bling.
