Fortnite recently organized a virtual Rift Tour and the tour will be lead by the record-breaking superstar Ariana Grande. Ariana teamed up with Fortnite for this special event where they aspire to combine music with games and explain various features and parts of the game through a musical performance.
Ariana has been a leading singer and has worked with different forms of music including pop, EDM, R&B, hip-hop, and trap.
Fortnite not only gave Ariana the chance to host the event but also surprised her with a new skin added to the gameplay. The new skin is her own “Icon Series skin”, which the players can purchase and use to change their avatar in the game. This double bonus was given by Epic Games, the American video game and software developer and publisher, who launched Fortnite.
Fortnite is an online video game released in 2017. There are three modes available for the game, Fortnite: Save the World, Fortnite Battle Royale, Fortnite Creative.
Ariana Grande’s avatar will be included in the game and she is quite popularly known as the Dangerous Woman. She goes on her Battle Royale frenzy and shows her skills using the Fortnite guns. Her avatar will be launched soon.
Earlier it was rumored that a virtual event was going to take place which was supposed to be an in-game event where Ariana herself played along with other players. This event was scheduled to happen on July 31st, 2021 but due to certain inconveniences, it was canceled and moved ahead.
The news about her partnership with Fortnite to host its Virtual Rift Tour was known by a tweet made by the dangerous singer on Twitter. The virtual event would be a 3-day event that will start on 6th August 2021 and end on 8th August 2021. Last Saturday the game developers teased about having a celebrity at their virtual event but it wasn’t confirmed yet that the event would be hosted by Grande herself. But recently Epic Games confirmed the news.
The players became aware of the event on July 27th, Tuesday, 2021 when a big timer countdown appeared on their Fortnite Battle Royal homepage. This timer became visible during matches too. That’s when the excitement started to kick in. For the players, a new option has been included in their Fortnite Battle Royale. All you need to do is go to your main menu where you can find the Rift tour tab click on the tab and select a date for the match you can change this date afterward.
The Rift Tour schedule is divided into five different options, each corresponding to a specific time and region.
Players are expected to log in to the game 60 minutes prior to the mentioned time.
If you are waiting for the singer’s virtual concert then you will need to wait for almost a week as the whole weekend would be filled with Fortnite’s Rift Tour event from Friday to Sunday.
Ariana would be included in the Icon Series Skins with others like LeBron James, Ninja, and more. Ariana’s skin would be available for the players in the games in the app shop from 4th August, Wednesday, 2021.
The game will also include new skins of other singers like Marshmello, Travis Scott, and Cactus Jack the rapper. These singers would not be part of the virtual Rift Tour event but you need not worry and Ariana alone can run the show and rock it.
