It’s later tonight
Bruno Mars is the last celebrity to enter the virtual world of Fortnite. Today, developer Epic Games announced that the game Battle Royale would receive a new emote from Mars – essentially a dance within the game – with the song by the singer “Leave the Door Open”. Players will be able to purchase it from 20:00 ET tonight.
Fortnite is increasingly becoming a place full of real-world stars, whether it’s streamers like Tyler “Ninja” Blevins or the next appearance of Brazilian soccer star Neymar. Music, in particular, has been a major focal point for the game. Marshmello and Travis Scott played massive in-game shows with millions of virtual participants, BTS debuted a video clip and Epic even created their own sound studio to host shows by names like Dominic Fike, J Balvin and Anderson .Paak (who recently played with Bruno Mars at the Grammys).
The Battle Royale game began its last season last month, which has so far included everything from violent dinosaurs to rocks.
