"Fortnite" Marshmello Items Now Available In Light Of Saturday's In-Game Concert

Marshmello stage Fortnite

Fortnite is hosting a live DJ Marshmello concert in the game

The posters have been distributed around the island, a stage has been constructed over at Pleasant Park, and we're ready to get the show on the road.

And that's it - if you followed all those steps then you should have completed every one of the Fortnite Showtime Challenges, so now you can just sit back and wait for the concert to begin. Previous data mining from patch v7.20 uncovered a secret Marshmello music video, which will presumably debut with his concert.

The event has gone down as a huge success, both Marshmello and Fortnite are trending on Twitter worldwide.

Accompanying Marshmallo's appearance is a trio of in-game "Showtime Challenges", a special set of three in-game challenges that are related to the event.

The Showtime event kicked off with a series of challenges, giving fans a chance to unlock a set of Marshmello rewards.

Two new emotes have been added, including "The Marsh Walk " and "Bobbin'" emotes, which are special dance moves players can perform in the game. Such heinous acts have been a source of grief for players during past live-events so this would be a much-welcomed feature. Although, it could be argued that the victory had more to do with his teammate, Ninja, who happens to be one of the game's best players. It's a unique twist on the company's in-game event, though it's yet to be seen how popular this particular format will be among players. Website FortniteNews posted several pieces of leaked info of a (now confirmed) concert stage in Pleasant Park, new skins and items for the event and a special set of challenges to coincide with the show.
