Last week, Epic Games teased that a “record-breaking superstar” would be performing in Fortnite’s upcoming Rift Tour concert series. Turns out the mystery star is no other than Ariana Grande herself. Grande’s first Rift Tour performance takes place this Friday.
Epic Games presents the Rift Tour, an experience spanning five showtimes over three days, starting August 6th at 6 PM ET, through August 8th. Judging from the glimpses we caught in the trailer, Ariana Grande will arrive in Fortnite with several different outfits. That’s only fitting, considering that she’s the biggest pop icon to collaborate with Fortnite so far, so the show must fit the standard.
This virtual concert is one of the top Fortnite events that Epic Games has kicked off so far, and honestly, we can’t wait to see what this grand show is going to look like. Unfortunately, we have no details on Grande’s performance itself. Though we keep it in mind that Epic Games likely want to keep the fanbase on their toes, and we can tell it’s working already.
While the Rift Tour is definitely an event we are all waiting for, there is more great news to share to amplify the anticipation. Ariana Grande’s skin is arriving in Fortnite’s Item Shop It seems like you can buy her with V-Bucks and not win it for free by participating in tournaments. Either way, Grande’s skin goes live on Wednesday, August 4, 2021, at 5 PM PT / 8 PM ET / 1 AM BST (August 5, 2021). It’s estimated that the skin will likely cost between 1,500 to 2,000 V-Bucks, though, it’s no wonder since it’s the iconic Ariana Grande we’re talking about. Stay tuned and get your V-Bucks ready!
