  • Scott "performed" four songs, and previewed a brand new track.
  • The event involved a ton of extra visuals, especially compared to the previous events.
  • For those who missed out, four more showings of the event will occur throughout the weekend.

After teasing it for some time, Fortnite and Travis Scott officially met in another one of the game's notorious in-game events. This time, much like Marshmello before him, Scott performed a virtual concert for the many fans in a Fortnite lobby. Unlike the previous events found in Fortnite, however, this one made sure to take players on a trip across a variety of different areas.

As fans flooded into a special Travis Scott playlist, a countdown timer appeared in the sky. Once it hit zero, the world of Fortnite quickly transformed into a trippy, psychedelic festival. Scott appeared in the game as a gigantic figure, towering over everyone else as he performed some of his more well-known songs.

The scenes of the concert shifted from bight neon lights to an underwater section before ending in space, as players floated through the universe listening to a short snippet of Scott's newest song, "The Scotts." The event itself was only around 10 minutes long, but was definitely filled with much more production value and had the feel of much more then just a simple concert.
