Every time Fortnite and Epic Games announces something new, we find ourselves always feeling a little surprised. But today, the only thing we’re feeling is amazement as the popular battle royale game now has global superstar Ariana Grande at its side for the Fortnite Rift Tour.
A multi-platinum artist and Grammy award winner, Ariana Grande will be the headline performer for the Fortnite Rift Tour – an event that promises a unique, musical experience ‘unlike any other’.
Fortnite has hosted concerts before, and they’ve always proven to be quite the trippy experience, including things like being flushed down a toilet, and going through sandy deserts. Like we said, a really trippy, but intriguing experience for fans and players alike. Epic Games have worked with artists like English band Easy Life, Travis Scott, and Marshmello through these experiences, and now Ariana Grande will be the one in the spotlight.
Despite her own stardom, Ariana Grande says that “working with Epic and the Fortnite team to bring my music to life inside the game has been so fun and such an honor. I can’t wait to join my fans and see all of your reactions to such an unforgettable, magical journey to new realities.”
“Fortnite is a place for the imagination and the impossible. With the Rift Tour, we’re bringing a musical journey to life that players can experience, feel, and join alongside their friends,” says Phil Rampulla, Head of Brand at Epic Games, “We’re so grateful to have an iconic superstar like Ariana Grande and her team join us for a musical experience at metaverse scale, and for players and fans alike to experience the Rift Tour!”
