Epic Games have announced the Party Royale premier event including three artists.
Epic Games announced Party Royale prior to the v12.50 Fortnite update releasing. An email was sent out to those in the Support-A-Creator program outlining what the update would bring. Last week on Friday, Epic did a test run with a small live event, and now they’ve announced the premiere for Fortnite Party Royale.
Not only did they announce the premiere, they’ve also announced some new figures including the amount of registered players. In the tweet announcing the Fortnite Party Royale Premiere, Epic Games stated that there are now 350 million registered players worldwide. This will likely see a larger increase now that Fortnite is available on the Google Play Store.
In April, players spent over 3.2 billion hours in game, which is likely a record for Fortnite. The amount of hours logged recently are down to almost all countries being in lock down. We could see further numbers released this month if they surpass April.
Here’s everything we know about the Party Royale premiere.
