Players that want to experience the in-game concert should remember to update their games to v17.30 before the event. The concert is open to all players, old and new, absolutely free. All you’ll need to do is enter the Battle Royale mode during your preferred showtime. Epic Games also advises players to load up Fortnite an hour before their desired showtime. The Rift Tour playlist is expected to go live 30 minutes before each show. Also, before Ariana Grande’s arrival, there will be Fortnite-themed experiences for players. This involves “pairing popular tracks with moments based on elements from the game.”
The schedules for the five shows are as follows:
- Friday, August 6 (6:00 PM ET)
- Saturday, August 7 (2:00 PM ET)
- Sunday, August 8 (12:00 AM ET)
