Fortnite Brought In 10 Million Players During Marshmello Concert

For the 15-minute concert, Epic disabled all of our weapons and building capabilities so that we could enjoy the show without being griefed.

Video game journalist and host of the Video Game Awards, Geoff Keighley, posted on Twitter that his sources confirmed that the show might have smashed the current world record for players in Fortnite. Not only did the event go smoothly, but the general consensus was that it was one of the game's best events yet.

The show on February 2 was an absolute blast for players from all around the world, as they were able to drop into the Battle Royale island and witness a free concert.

Marshmello set up shop on a virtual stage set up inside the game on Saturday. Does this mean we'll eventually see mainstream artists holding virtual concerts for countless millions of fans?

And there has also been a special announcement following today's big Fortnite event. To help promote that, a new mini event has begun consisting of new challenges and rewards.

There will be a Marshmello-themed skin for sale.

As seen on the fliers for the Showtime Venue, which was a part of a challenge players needed to complete, the Showtime Venue will be in Pleasant Park.

The stage for the show has been constructed on the football field inside the park.

Marshmello uploaded the whole concert to his YouTube channel which you can watch below.

Some Marshmellow-related items will be available in the game too.
