Fortnite Chapter 5 is finally here, and thanks to it, players will be able to enjoy a new special mode called Fortnite Festival. Here’s everything you need to know about it, including upcoming events and more.
Fortnite OG said goodbye with The Big Bang event that showed players glimpses of new dedicated experiences that’ll land on Fortnite very soon. One of those upcoming games is called Fortnite Festival and will let players jam along with their friends and some of the most popular artists around the world.
Before the Fortnite Festival debuts, here’s everything we know about it, including what artist will headline the first big show.
Is there a Fortnite Festival release date?
Epic Games confirmed Fortnite Festival will launch worldwide on December 9, 2023.
Players will be able to join the musical experience by selecting the game mode using the “By Epic Games” tab.
Fortnite Festival explained
Fortnite Festival will work similarly to musical titles like Guitar Hero or Rock Band, where players will play solo or in a band with different roles. Rock Band developer Harmonix helped create this new game mode, and players got a glimpse of it during the Eminem concert in Fortnite.
Big artists will be the main attraction of the Fortnite Festival, and players will be able to jam alongside their most popular songs in the Festival mode. Each artist will get their own Festival Pass, giving players the chance to unlock special rewards with Festival Points, obtained by completing Festival quests. These rewards include different Instruments and the brand-new Auras, a Festival-exclusive cosmetic.
While players will be able to pick an instrument to play in a band, Fortnite Festival will also add leaderboards for players to compete with friends and other players.
The Weeknd event in Fortnite Festival
The first artist to headline a Fortnite Festival event will be The Weeknd. Epic Games will release the official trailer for the first Festival Pass and event on December 5, 2023, at 6 PM PT / 9 PM ET / 2 AM GMT (December 6).
The trailer will give players a closer look at the game mode, its specific mechanics, and its first batch of rewards.
