Fortnite now has over 350 million registered players!

Additionally, in April players spend over 3.2 billion hours in game. To celebrate, Epic Games, the company which owns Fortnite, have announced the premiere of Party Royale Live which will include performances from Dillon Francis, Steve Aoki and deadmau5. 

The Party Royale will take place this Friday 8 May at 21:00 EDT (01:00 GMT Saturday) with an encore performance the following day.

The party will take place on a new island that players will be able to access even when live events are not taking place.

Epic Games said this was a chance for players to "leave their weapons" and "hang out with friends". Usually Fortnite players engage in battles with one other to be the last player remaining.

During the coronavirus pandemic, while friends are unable to meet in person, gaming platforms have become a more popular space to connect and hang out.

Will you catch these performances on Friday?
