'Fortnite' collabs with Marshmello for a live in-game concert. Seriously.

'Fortnite' collabs with Marshmello for a live in-game concert. Seriously.

Website FortniteNews posted several pieces of leaked info of a (now confirmed) concert stage in Pleasant Park, new skins and items for the event and a special set of challenges to coincide with the show.

Following on from past successful events such as the rocket launch that split the sky and the big cube explosion (RIP Kevin) Epic Games appear to have something a little different in the form of a concert with real life DJ Marshmello. The concert will take place within Fortnite on Saturday, February 2, at 2:00 p.m. ET. Also, if you visit the football field in question, you'll see that the preparation work for a music event is already underway. Currently, we only know one of the three challenges we'll need to complete, but we've run through how to get the poster to complete the first one anyway. Marshmello's website doesn't specifically mention Fortnite, but it isn't hard to put two and two together, particularly as the information lines up with the leaked poster. Doing this will unlock the Keep It Mello emote, which you'll need to use for one of the other challenges.

The Fortnite Marshmello event start time is 7pm GMT in the UK.

Based on the test, if Warren's great-great-great-grandmother were Native American, she would be considered 1/64 Native American. Warren did end up taking a DNA test, which estimated that she was 1/64th to 1/1024th Native American.

You can also purchase a Marshmello skin by visiting the in-game shop.

Marshmello lit up the eSports and dance music blogs this week with the news that there would be a special Marshmello dance event within Fortnite this weekend. Don't be disheartened though - considering Fortnite's previous events, it's likely players from around the globe will be able to fully participate.

The Showtime challenges in Fortnite are now live and for those that are fans of Marshmello, the in-game concert kicking off today is something that shouldn't be missed. For your convenience, we will provide live-streams of the event here one way or another.
