Fortnite Is Throwing A Deadmau5 Concert Tomorrow
Fortnite is throwing a virtual concert featuring deadmau5 tomorrow, as it passes more than 350 million users.
Posting on Twitter the company announced it would be hosting its Party Royale Premier Live tomorrow (8 May) at 9pm ET (2am 9 May BST) with music from deadmau5, Dillon Francis and Steve Aoki.
If those hours don't work for you, the whole thing will be repeated the next day from 2 PM to 3 PM ET (7pm to 8pm on 10 May).
The new Party Royale mode is set on a completely separate island to the main Battle Royale and, as the name suggests, it's got a very different vibe. You won't guns or weaponry here, it's purely a place to kick back, chill out and listen to some music, or have a boogie.
If you prefer for your computer game characters to be a little more active there's also fun stuff such as boat races and obstacle courses around the island. Sounds good, eh?

The official site states: "Shows at the Main Stage are just some of the many attractions at Party Royale. In this new experimental and evolving space, there are many things to do and places to explore.
"For example: take on aerial obstacle courses at Skydive Rift, participate in boat races at Fishsticks' Boat Race, and grab items at The Plaza such as the new Paint Launcher."
The Party Royale Event will be go on for a few days, winding up on the 11 May and if you fancy popping along you can do by selecting the Party Royale playlist when you log in to Fortnite.
And it seems as though Fortnite has a lot to celebrate.
While we all know that the game is pretty bloody popular, it seems to have a had a bit of boost in recent weeks due to us all spending more time indoors.
So much so, that Epic Games posted on Twitter that Fortnite now has more than 350 million registered players across the globe and that in April those players spent more 3.2 billion hours in-game. A legit reason to throw a huge virtual party then.
This isn't the first time Epic Games has dabbled with an in-game concert, just last month Travis Scott performed and brought in a whopping 12.3 million people.
A developer from Epic Games said the concert was an 'all-time record' for Fortnite.
