If you cannot do this (and do not want to be rude, but you must be able to do at least one of them), then do not worry. We were there at the first performance and captured all this for you in his trip glory. Be warned, everything becomes strange.
In anticipation of the event, which will take place last night, Epic teased for a long time “one-of-a-kind musical journey”, which debuted in the new track. Scott is not the first artist to appear on Fortnite. Back in February 2019, DJ Marshmello arranged a live concert, performing a special extended set of Fortnite.
Along with witnesses to this event, you can also take part in some of the astronomical trials of Fortnite to unlock free gear. Scott’s outfits and emotions are now available in the game, and visiting any of them includes the Astroworld Cyclone Glider and two free boot screens.
