The Philadelphia DJ and producer is expected to make a virtual appearance in the video game
Marshmello is heavily rumoured to be making an appearance in Fortnite: Battle Royale this weekend.
Details of the Philadelphia DJ and producer’s plans to perform a concert within the game were reportedly leaked earlier this week in documents procured from the v7.30 update, although Fortnite‘s makers Epic have yet to confirm that a virtual gig will be staged.
According to Forbes, players can currently see a stage being built within the game’s Pleasant Park, which will apparently play host to the big event which Marshmello is slated to perform at. A listing on the touring site Bandsintown also claims that Marshmello will perform on Fortnite on Saturday (February 2) at 2pm EST.
Variety reports that the show will apparently be “its own limited-time mode called ‘Party at Pleasant Park'”. Respawns will be available during the show, which means players can continue to play and kill each other’s characters throughout the concert.
Reports also suggest that a new bundle – which includes a Marshmello skin, pickaxe, and spray – will also be made available for players to get this weekend.
“We wrote a song called ‘Happier’ and everyone got really excited about it so we thought it would be good as a collaboration,” Dan Smith told NME. “We had a really interesting time getting to work on it with Marshmello, who managed to find some euphoria in a pretty melancholy, direct song.
“It’s always good to step into somebody else’s world for a minute and we’re excited to be a part of it.”
