The Korean pop mega-group BTS is making its way into Fortnite’s Party Royale mode this week, Epic announced today.

On Sept. 25 at 7pm CT, Party Royale will premiere the choreography version of BTS’ “Dynamite” music video, marking a huge partnership with the tremendously popular boy band.

Fans will be able to dance along to the music with two new emotes that were choreographed by BTS themselves. The emotes will be available in the in-game item shop starting on Sept. 23 at 7pm CT.

Also starting on Sept. 22, players can jump into a Fortnite creative mode recreation of the original “Dynamite” music video, which was created by community members YU7A, TreyJTH, and SundayCW.

In the creative recreation, BTS fans and players can run around as if they were in the music video while also completing challenges and mini-games.

“Dynamite” currently boasts over 173 million plays on Spotify. In 2018, BTS’ album Love Yourself: Tear topped the Billboard 200, making them the first K-pop group to hit No. 1 in the U.S.

Update: Sept. 21, 9:07am CT: Fortnite has posted a special announcement video, featuring BTS themselves, to commemorate the premiere.
