AFTER much speculation over the last couple of weeks, Ariana Grande has been announced as the headliner for Rift Tour in Fortnite. Rift Tour is a weekend long in-game musical journey beginning on August 7. Quests pertaining to Rift Tour have already started though, rewarding players with a Rift-sterpiece spray, Cosmic Cuddles loading screen and Cloudy Kitty emoticon.
During its five scheduled shows, Rift Tour is said to take players and their friends on a musical journey across new realities that incorporates Ariana Grande, her music and other Fortnite moments. What does this mean exactly? We’re not entirely sure. Ariana Grande is one of multiple musical guests to appear in Fortnite, including Travis Scott, Marshmello and Dominic Fike.
“Working with Epic and the Fortnite team to bring my music to life inside the game has been so fun and such an honour,” says Ariana. “I can’t wait to join my fans and see all of your reactions to such an unforgettable, magical journey to new realities.”
Along with Event-specific quests, Rift Tour cosmetics will also be made available in the Item Shop. The Ariana Grande outfit and Piggy Smallz Backbling will launch as part of the Fortnite Icon Series. Exclusive rewards for Fortnite Crew members have also been revealed.
