Epic has confirmed that they will be hosting a series of Travis Scott events in Fortnite, the massive battle royale title that has hosted events with Star Wars director J.J Abrahms and world-renowned DJ Marshmellow.
The Astronomical Event, named after Scott’s most recent album, will take place over five different events in the game, to ensure that as many people as possible can see them.
They will take place from April 23 to April 25, with each slot aimed at a different timezone.
- April 23 – 7pm EDT
- April 24 – 10 am EDT
- April 25 – 12 am EDT
- April 25 – 11am EDT
- April 25 – 6 pm EDT
Where will the event be held in the game?
Epic has yet to announce this detail, but all the signs point towards an island near Sweaty Sands. Posters began to appear in the game, featuring artwork for the event, and showing a topographical map of the area around Sweaty Sands. Some players have even discovered some construction on-going at an island between Sweaty Sands and The Shark.
As well as the concert itself, players will also be able to get some special event rewards. Anyone who watches the event in the game will receive two exclusive loading screens, and you will also be able to get a special Glider that looks like a car from a rollercoaster with diamond teeth.
The Travis Scott Skin
You will be able to purchase a special Travis Scott skin in the game from April 21, but prices for those items have not yet been confirmed. Purchasing the skin will also get some exclusive challenges for a Spray, profile picture, and a new Emote.
