A new single from the artist will debut via the game.
One thing that’s interesting about Fortnite is that it has, in many ways, evolved past just being the biggest game in the world and into something of a cultural crossroads. The game has crossed over with other big properties such as Star Wars or Marvel’s Avenger in some type of unique promotion. And now it seems like the newest is a bit of a musical venture from one of the newest up and coming artists.
As announced via Epic Games, they will partner with musician Travis Scott for an event they are calling Astronomical. It’s not entirely clear exactly how the event will go down, but Scott will be premiering a new track. There are dates listed as well, which seem to imply there is some live or limited element. You can see the times below, or read about them through here.
As always with these types of events, there will also be free skins and gear you can unlock by participating. Astronomical will premiere on April 23rd in Fortnite across all platforms. It is recommended that you go into the game at least 30 minutes early to reserve your spot.
