Marshmello took part in a groundbreaking in-game concert, inside Epic Games’ Fortnite, Saturday (Feb. 2).
His virtual set — which was the first of its kind in Fortnite and included performances of “Alone,” “Gassed Up,” “Check This Out,” “Colors,” “Flashbacks,” “Everyday,” “Fly” and “Happier” — happened in the game’s Pleasant Park Saturday afternoon.
“We made history today!” Marshmello, who’s a known Fortnite fan, wrote on Twitter, where his name was trending during the show. “The first ever live virtual concert inside of @fortnite with millions of people in attendance. So insane, thank you epic games and everyone who made this possible!”
Events and challenges have proven a spectacular means of encouraging fans to keep engaged with the free-to-play component of Fortnite. Another major event included Ralph from Wreck-It Ralph appearing on the movie theater screen within the game – but this was more of an Easter egg appearance to coincide with that film’s sequel than a full-blown event. As it turns out, however, Epic Games is far from opposed to putting on full-scale promotional events.
They should have more Concerts with more artist on Fortnite.. that’d be lit.. this was by far the best event in Fortnite
