About the Event
Each of the five times the Astronomical event of Travis Scott has been shown, they lasted for roughly 10 minutes. Players got the chance to run around a set that was based upon the cover song of his last album, Astroworld. Online games players eventually got to swim and fly through some of the psychedelic areas while Scott played other songs along with Sicko Mode. Finally, the event came to an end when a butterfly appeared on the screen and all the players were transported back to the usual island.
Experiments by Fortnite
Fortnite is known for experimentation and Fortnite chapter 2 is an example. They have experimented earlier with hosting concerts inside a game of theirs by holding a performance for 10 minutes by Marshmello on 2nd February the previous year. It saw above 10.7 million players tuning in to watch the famous DJ perform some of the hit songs such as ‘Everyday’ and ‘Happier’. It had also set a new record then for concurrent players. Unlike in-game performance by Travis Scott, this was a live concert for the first and last time. The performance of Marshmello had a high number of viewers during The Cube Event by Fortnite which saw a total of 8.3 million players watching the show as a weird purple cube was destroyed.
Live Events by Fortnite
Hosting live concerts and events have become a tradition for Fortnite with the progress of its seasons. They came up with this idea in its third season after a meteor was able to destroy the Dusty Depot and all the future seasons have had at least a major event. The first chapter for Fortnite came to an end with a black hole in October last year. Players were not able to play the game for two days. Over 7 million players watched Fortnite chapter 2 when it was rolled out.
Some Speculations by Players on the Season
Currently, speculations are going on among all the concurrent players that the second season of Fortnite chapter 2 will finish by an event that will be related to doomsday devices. Most of the players have already spotted that there are some mysterious devices in waters closer to The Agency. The data miners are in discord as they have found some files referring to 3 items that have not been used namely Doomsday Hatch, Doomsday Device, and Doomsday Door. The ongoing season was to conclude previously on 30th April, but the date has been extended to 4th June.
