Millions of People Watched the Fortnite Marshmello Concert

That said, it should perhaps come as no surprise that the event drew an absolutely staggering amount of players in-game to watch it.

Earlier today, Fortnite hosted the highly-anticipated Marshmello concert at Pleasant Park, and it was a hit.

For those in the United States, the Fortnite Marshmello concert will be going live again at 2am EST, which will likely follow the rules of the first.

Following the brief show, Marshmello (real name: Christopher Comstock) took to Twitter to thank the game's developer and all the fans who participated. Or, take into consideration his encore show that occurred 12 hours later, so another batch of players could experience this piece of video game history.

We've seen this in-game concert thing before, but not on this scale. The first ever live virtual concert inside of Fortnite with millions of people in attendance. As previously mentioned, the Showtime Challenge is a special set of three in-game challenges related to this particular Marshmello event.

Beaten Australian Open finalist Kvitova believes she can win another slam
And just think: At the start of 2018, the now-two-time major victor was ranked well outside of the top 50. Her defensive efforts and movement stymied all of Kvitova's attempts to find rhythm in the decider.

The first of the Showtime challenges asks you to search a Showtime poster. For the duration of the 10-minute show at Pleasant Park, which was broadcast across thousands of servers, weapons were disabled and respawns turned on so players could concentrate on deploying dance emotes instead of murder.

Until the others unlock, that leaves you to merely track down a showtime poster.

"Fortnite" and Marshmello are collaborating.
