When is the Ariana Grande concert in fortnite?

Well, it may not come as a massive surprise, but the Ariana Grande concert for Fortnite has now been confirmed - and it's taking place 6th-8th August. Eurogamer.netAriana Grande headlining Fortnite concert series this week

The Ultra Unlock event was announced after Go Fest 2021 in Pokemon Go after players completed enough Global Challenges. Running from July 23 to August 31, it consists of three parts, each with different rare ‘mon appearing in the wild and raids.

Parts one and two were Time and Space-themed, focusing on Gen V, and on August 3, Niantic revealed that part three is going to center around the Galar region. Some players are frustrated, though, as they expected Alola to be added instead.

While some Alolan Pokemon are in Go, it’s only the regional forms. The starters and Legendaries still haven’t been added to the Pokedex, despite demand being there for years now, and Litten, Popplio, and Rowlet were even featured in the fifth-anniversary promo art. So it was expected, then, that the third part of the Ultra Unlock event would be based around Gen VII – and not Sword & Shield.

Some players are unhappy with this announcement, confused as to why Niantic has “skipped” Alola entirely, and instead added in Gen 8 Legendary mascots, Zacian and Zamazenta. “LMAO THEY JUST SKIPPED ALOLA,” one fan tweeted, alongside a screenshot of the Niantic blog post. “What was the purpose of teasing the Alola starters if they are skipping ahead to Galar,” another wrote.

These are just two complaints among many, with “Alola” even trending worldwide on Twitter at the time of writing.

Serebii’s Joe Merrick also weighed in. “I do wonder if GO skipped Alola temporarily because they didn’t want to figure out how to deal with the fact there are 22 Legendary Pokémon not counting alternate forms,” he said. “Or they just wanted to throw a curveball.”

It is currently unclear whether Niantic does actually have a plan to include more of the Gen VII Pokedex and whether it’ll have its own event later on in the year, but one thing is for certain either way – the demand is most definitely there.

Part three of the Pokemon Go Ultra Unlock event starts on August 20 and runs all the way until August 31. Unfortunately for Shiny hunters, Zacian and Zamazenta will be Shiny-locked, which is common for new additions.

Whole Portions Of The ‘Fortnite’ Map Are Now Being Abducted By Aliens

Ahead of this weekend’s giant alien-infused Ariana Grande concert, the mothership that has been over the Fortnite map since the season launched is now getting a bit…hungry.

The ship is now starting to abduct not just individual players, who previously could bounce around inside the mothership for a fun little minigame during matches, but now entire POIs on the map.

Right now, it’s starting with Slurpy Swamp, and you can now head over to the abduction zone which is being eaten alive and sucked up into the belly of the ship slowly.

The entire zone is now a low gravity area, meaning your jumps now go 5x as high or so, and pieces of the map are starting to float up into the air toward the ship. You can still loot it like a normal zone, and there aren’t many enemy troops around, but yeah, the geometry has certainly changed.

It’s a cool effect, and reportedly it will continue to change as the hours and days go on. I’m not sure if it’s going to just be a hole in the ground once it’s done being abducted, but it’s cool to visit right now and see some neat effects like SLURP being sucked up into the air as it spills out of pipes. The little details really make the scene.

I’m not sure how many zones in total are going to be abducted by the time this is said and done, but I remember hearing that Coral Castle is another zone that’s going to get sucked up too, so maybe that’s next after this one. My guess is that this process will likely be done by the time Ariana’s concert starts, so it may start to accelerate rather quickly.

This is going to be a cool event, whether it’s tied to the Rift Tour or not, a slow change to the map paving the way for these zones to be replaced by something else in the future. Why is the mothership collecting zones? (it already has a number of older ones inside of it that it has clearly taken from other parallel islands). That’s unclear, but this is the most engaged I’ve been with a Fortnite “storyline” for quite some time now. Keep an eye on these zones as they start to dissemble, and we will have to see how all this culminates by the Rift Tour on Friday.

Fortnite downtime today (August 3rd): When will the servers be back up?

Sportskeeda 03 August, 2021 - 12:30am

Fortnite Season 7 has turned out to be quite the surprise. Loopers have been receiving back to back updates every week since July 20th, and this week is no exception as the Fortnite 17.30 update is due to roll out soon.

Much like the Fortnite 17.21 update, this update is expected to be small in size, with just the essential files being added to the game related to the event and map changes. Here are the details for the Fortnite downtime.

Based on the official statement, the Fortnite downtime today (August 3rd) is set to begin at 01:30 AM ET or 05:30 UTC. As usual, the downtime should last anywhere between thirty minutes and an hour depending on the amount of content being added in.

Matchmaking servers will be taken offline prior to downtime and will be back up again once the update is complete. Once the downtime is done and the Fortnite 17.30 update is complete, players can expect to see a few map changes alongside event details and a new weapon being added to the game.

It's still uncertain if the map changes are being made today, or if the files are merely being added in to prepare for the event. However, leakers unanimously agree that they will indeed be added today if nothing else, given that the Fortnite Ariana Grande Rift Tour is due in a few days.

In addition to the event files and map changes, the Grabi-Tron or Gravity weapon will also be added to the game based on official information from Epic Games themselves. Players will be able to use the gun to lift and throw objects at enemy players.

Aside from the above-mentioned additions to the game, new cosmetics related to the event such as Ariana Grande and Skull Tooper skins will be added to the game as well following the update.

Aside from the downtime and updates, the Mothership is currently powering up over Slurpy Swamp and the entire POI may change prior to the update. However, it is more than likely that the changes will only occur post update as there is hardly any time left for the downtime to begin.
