Epic Games has announced a new concert featuring Young Thug, Diplo, and Noah Cyrus coming to Fortnite via its official Party Royale mode. The event is officially titled “Diplo Presents: Thomas Wesley With Special Guests Noah Cyrus and Young Thug.” As such with the mode, weapons will be disabled to let players spectate freely without worrying about being eliminated. This marks the first concert event to take place on the Party Royale Main Stage since the start of Chapter 2, Season 3. This also marks yet another show from Diplo on the Battle Royale title since the mode started.
Fortnite is becoming more of a platform than just an average game. The title recently premiered the trailer for Christopher Nolan’s upcoming film Tenet and of course hosted a music event starring Travis Scott, which sparked the Party Royale mode now being used to showcase concerts. Fortnite‘s most recent event was the previous season’s Doomsday event called The Device. It proved to be so successful that servers couldn’t support enough players to see it in-game, forcing some to watch the action via Twitch streams instead.
“Diplo Presents: Thomas Wesley With Special Guests Noah Cyrus and Young Thug” takes place live on June 25, at 6 pm PST/9 pm EST.
