Ariana Grande Will Be The Latest Star To Host A Concert In ’Fortnite’

UPROXX 01 August, 2021 - 02:08pm

One of the more unique ways we’ve seen this happening is in Fortnite. The battle royale may be most well known for all the dance trends it spawns, but it’s also hosted a lot of crossovers with real life stars such as Travis Scott and LeBron James.

Joining the trend of celebrities making their appearance in Fortnite will be pop star Ariana Grande. The former child actor turned pop singer, will be a part of Fortnite’s “Rift Tour” where she’ll put on virtual concerts for anyone that attends the in-game events. Of course, because this is Fortnite, there will also be quests to complete and Ariana Grande themed loot to collect throughout the Rift Tour.

Among the items that players can earn while playing Fortnite during this event is a Cuddly Cloudcruiser umbrella that players will be able to glide in with after dropping. The event begins Friday, August 6, and will take place throughout the weekend. The final showing will be on August 8, Sunday, at 6 p.m. ET.

Ensuring that fans around the world can catch the Rift Tour, the experience spans five showtimes over three days. We recommend fans arrive in Fortnite 60 minutes before showtime, and the Rift Tour Playlist should be live 30 minutes before each show. Before Ariana’s arrival, the Rift Tour kicks off with Fortnite-themed experiences — pairing popular tracks with moments based on elements from the game.

This might seem weird to some, but these events have been wildly successful in the past. During Travis Scott’s virtual concert he managed to break Fortnite’s concurrent players record with over 12 million all playing at once. Considering the extreme popularity of Ariana Grande, and that FFortnite is a free game, there’s a pretty solid chance that this concert is going to break a few records of its own.

From Fortnite to Hearthstone and everything in-between, we have you covered with our gaming tips and guides.

From the indie video game to the dominating AAA that needs a 1000Gb day one update, we’ve got you covered.

Join Cultured Vultures as we bring you some of the biggest news from the world of wrestling. Whether it’s WWE news or something from across the sea, let’s talk shop.

With the Rift Tour only a few days away, it looks like the star of it has been confirmed ahead of time. Ariana Grande will indeed be coming to Fortnite as a skin, and she looks like something out of a fighting game.

Over in France, ads have been popping up in the real world for the Rift Tour in Fortnite which people have been able to scan. The AR experience ends with a glimpse at the upcoming Ariana Grande skin in Fortnite, which you can check out courtesy of @iFireMonkey.

Here’s what Ariana Grande looks like in Fortnite:

There’s even a trailer which suggests that Ariana Grande (or at least her avatar) will be performing within Fortnite as part of the Rift Tour.

The Ariana Grande skin in Fortnite will come with multiple styles, not just the one already revealed.

While this style has silver hair, there’s another style will feature Ariana with her natural hair and maybe also some of the incarnations from her music videos.

As long as the ponytail is absolutely massive, it’ll be close to the real thing. More will be revealed on August 2nd.

Ariana Grande’s Fortnite skin is due to launch alongside the Rift Tour, which starts from August 6th. Ariana Grande, meanwhile, will be in the Item Shop on August 4th, 2021.

There are various different times to watch the Rift Tour depending on your region:

Bear in mind that you’re able to attend any of these showings, the specific regions are just to make sure you have the best viewing experience and connection.

The Ariana Grande skin will be available in the Item Shop over the course of Rift Tour, though it will probably remain in the Item Shop for at least one week.

Ariana Grande’s Fortnite skin will be in the Icon Series. Most Icon skins cost 1500 V-Bucks (roughly $10/£12), so unless Epic change their pricing dramatically, she should cost around the same.

Every Icon skin also comes with its own bundle, meaning that there will almost certainly be extra cosmetics to go alongside the skin itself. These typically cost 2800 V-Bucks ($19.99/£15.99) with prices changing depending on what you already own within the set.

Here’s some of what will be in the Ariana Grande bundle, which includes a Back Bling and an Emote.

It’s unclear yet whether or not the Arian skin will return to the Item Shop after the event concludes, but based on the fact that Travis Scott’s skin has been missing for almost a whole year, don’t count on it.

Ahead of the Rift Tour kicking off, don’t forget to make a start on your challenges for some free rewards.
