In case you missed it, Fortnite featured a Travis Scott virtual concert last week, attended by 12.3 million players of the battle royale game.
The concert, part of a series of virtual concerts that lasted up until the weekend, broke the all-time record for concurrent player participation. The previous record was held by Marshmello’s Fortnite concert last year, which had a total of 10.7 million virtual participants.
Travis Scott’s show “Astronomical” ran over several dates from April 23rd to 25th in different timezones; it was both surreal and spectacular at the same time, with a giant version of the rapper walking through the game and doing his thing. Scott even premiered a brand new song during the event.
Those who did attend the show were able to get a special Astroworld Cyclone Glider and two loading screens for free, as well as concert “merch,” like a Travis Scott skin, a Travis Scott-themed cosmetics, and emotes that were available in the in-game item shop.
Epic Games also brought on a few Travis Scott-themed challenges that players could complete to earn a spray, a banner, a loading screen, and an emote.
