Epic continue to push the limits of what Fortnite actually is andnow they'll be launching and christening a squeaky clean new island with a gig featuring Dillon Francis, Steve Aoki and deadmau5.

Fortnite's developer has had great success with musicians, with Marshmello and Travis Scott both beating the game's concurrent player records. 

"Dillon Francis, Steve Aoki, and deadmau5 are coming to Party Royale with back-to-back-to-back sets LIVE on the big screen at the Main Stage. Hit the dance floor, chill with friends, or jump into activities in Party Royale", the dev wrote.

This time around, the occasion is even more fitting of a show, as it debuts with Fortnite's previously rumoured chillout island, i.e. Party Royale. 

There are no weapons in Party Royale, so you can forget about shooting, but there will be plenty to do outside of the music show part. 

You'll be able to take aerial obstacles courses at Skydive Rift, test your mettle in Fishticks' Boat Race and there's even a plaza that can be used to purchase items. 

Fortnite's new island should feature a few more activities at launch, and Epic are likely to add more along the way. It seems like they're particularly fond of music shows and with numbers supporting the theory, there's no reason to stop. 

Epic's battle royale has truly gone a long way, going from a duct-taped PUBG clone to probably the most popular game on the planet. Clearly, Fortnite's next step seems to be a social platform.

According to the latest figures, Fortnite now boasts 350 million registered players, a staggering amount by any metric. 

At the same time, Epic are giving players across the globe access to shows they couldn't have attended otherwise, which is pretty great when everyone's locked in their houses.
