Epic Games is about to announce the Fortnite Ariana Grande live event
The Fortnite Ariana Grande live event may soon be officially confirmed by Epic Games. It has been rumored for some time that Ariana Grande will be the frontman of the Fortnite season 7 live event. And Epic Games has now confirmed that a Fortnite event is on the way and launching Friday.
The Fortnite Rift Tour will debut on Friday, August 6 and will feature five shows that will take Fortnite fans on a “magical” journey.
Interestingly, Epic Games has so far kept track of who will be the headliner of the Fortnite Rift Tour.
The Fortnite creators have teased that a “record-breaking superstar” will be performing on the Rift Tour.
And that description fits the pop superstar and all-around icon Ariana Grande.
Epic Games revealed the first details about the Fortnite Rift Tour on Thursday, July 29, and said some “big” news about the event will be out on Monday, August 2.
In a blog post the Fortnite team said: “From August 6-8, take a musical journey into magical new realities where Fortnite and a record-breaking superstar collide. Dive into the Rift Tour.”
They added: “On August 2nd, we’ll be sharing more big news about the Rift Tour. Get ready!”
Leading up to the Fortnite event, Battle Royale players can unlock some free rewards for the Rift Tour.
Until August 8, players can unlock the first wave of rewards for the Rift Tour.
These rewards include the Cosmic Cuddles loading screen, Rift starpiece Spray, and Cloudy Kitty Emoticon.
Epic Games has also announced the dates on which the Fortnite Rift Tour will take place.
These are the times and dates…
August 6 – 6:00 PM (America)
August 7 – 2 pm (worldwide)
August 8 – 12 noon (Asia, Oceania)
August 8 – 10 a.m. (EU)
August 8 – 6:00 PM (America)
In the lead up to the next Fortnite event, posters have gone live in-game, and finding these in-game items is central to one of the new Fortnite Rift Tour challenges.
These posters had been leaked before and when these items first surfaced, the rumors about Ariana Grande only intensified.
That’s because all of these posters have strong ties to the Thank U, Next singer.
One of the posters has the same color scheme as an outfit that Ariana is wearing on stage.
While another of these posters appears to be named after Ariana’s pet Piggy Smallz.
And the third and final poster is called Rain On Me, which is the name of one of Ariana Grande’s songs.
