After months of speculation, it has been revealed that Fortnite will stage an in-game concert called Rift Tour, which will feature Ariana Grande. Epic Games is hosting the games music festival this weekend and in order to kick off the event, the company has announced that pop star Ariana Grande will headline. The company says fans can sign up for Grande’s “Fortnite Concert Series” within an hour of the aforementioned Showtime, or to prepare, sign up for the Rift Tour playlist, which lasts 30 minutes for each of the five shows.
Epic has confirmed that Ariana Grande will headline the Fortnite Rift Tour after weeks of indiscretions and rumors, culminating in her performance on social media today. The pop star will be the last star to be at the “Fortnite: Rift Tour”, which will take place in-game from August 6-8. While Grande will headline the tour this week, she will take center stage in five shows taking place in different time zones.
Ariana Grande will star on the upcoming Rift Tour, a virtual music experience set to take place as part of the popular Fortnite multiplayer video game. Grammy winner and multi-platinum singer Ariana Grande is the next big star to join millions of active players in the game and kick off his Rift Tour. Phil Rampulla, brand director of Epic Games, described the game as “a place where fantasy is impossible,” and the Rift Tour will bring Fortnites players and their friends a new musical experience.
The Rift Tour will allow players to experience a magical journey with their friends, including one where Fortnite and Ariana Grande clash. Rumors came last week about when the 7 rings singer was set to perform in the next RIFT tour concert series of Fortnite, and on Sunday superstar Grande herself said she was honored to be in the show.
Last week Epic Games teased that a record-breaking superstar will appear in the Fortnite Rift Tour concert series. As with previous Fortnite events, Ariana Grande’s concerts will be shown in-game over several days, giving players plenty of opportunities to watch the game live. Not only will she be performing her Icon series on August 6th and 8th, but there are also some things to see for special concerts at selected times.
Phil Rampulla, brand director of Epic Games, expressed his gratitude that Grammy winner and multi-platinum singer Ariana Grande and her team were present at the latest Fortnite festival. As with previous performances, the main event will take place in party royale mode, combining popular songs by the singer with Moments-based elements of the game. Players around the world have multiple chances to participate in the Fortnites Rift Tour and can expect some in-game rewards and other surprises along the way.
Epic recommends players get back into the game at least an hour before the show so they can jump in the Rift Tour playlist before it goes live 30 minutes before showtime. In addition to the concert, the Rift tour will also feature a series of special quests and toiletries for Fortnite. The first wave of Rift Tour quests will run until the end of the concert on August 8 and can be found by clicking on Rift Tour New in-game under the tab.
