Fortnite fans will soon be treated to a three-day-long event featuring a "record-breaking superstar". The previous rumours about the event have named Ariana Grande as the artist.
Fortnite just scheduled The Rift Tour: "a musical journey into magical new realities where Fortnite and a record-breaking superstar collide". While there's no official confirmation on who the superstar actually is, we're betting on the previous rumour that Ariana Grande will make a couple of appearances during the event.
The RIft Tour - in-game quests
Players can already take part in the first wave of Rift Tour quests and unlock the Before the Tour Rewards. The first wave will end on August 8.
A special Rift Tour in-game tab
The Rift Tour will be a three-day five-showtime extravaganza and those require some planning. This has prompted Fortnite's devs to add a special tab dedicated to the event.
The new tab will allow the players to schedule the showtimes they're most interested in and send them notifications about the latest Rift Tour Quests. However, just clicking on the desired date and time won't count as an RSVP. All players should arrive in Fortnite one hour before showtime and the Rift Tour Playlist is scheduled to go live 30 minutes before each show.
