'Fortnite' Launches "Party Royale" Mode With Live DJ Sets

Fortnite is launching an all-new Party Royale mode today featuring live DJ sets by Steve Aoki, deadmau5, and Dillon Francis.

Building on the success of its in-game concerts — most recently with Travis Scott — Party Royale mode is “an experimental and evolving space in Fortnite,” says Epic Games. You can hang out with friends and/or play games all while enjoying live entertainment from the world’s biggest DJs.

The Party Royale premiere begins tonight, May 8, at 9 p.m. EST with back-to-back-to-back DJ performances by Dillon Francis, Steve Aoki, and deadmau5, in that order. While catching the live show, you can race around obstacle courses, go fishing with friends, and work on your skydive.

Gamers are allowed to join the broadcast at any time during the performance. Those who attend will be given a party favor in the form of a Neon Wings Back Bling cosmetic.
