12.3 million people played Fortnite last night to join in the game’s Travis Scott concert, as countless millions more watched streams of the event online.
It’s an all-time player record for Fortnite, with around two million more in-game than for last year’s Marshmello gig.
Where Marshmello’s set was a fairly straightforward stage experience, last night’s much-hyped show was a psychedelic trip that confounded expectations it would be based around a similar stage setting.
There are several encore performances over the next few days – indeed, Fortnite billed last night as only the first of several chances to watch, in a time slot primarily aimed at American players – to help keep server load manageable.
If you can catch another show, being in-game is absolutely the best way to experience this. The next is at 3pm UK time today, followed by further shows at 5am, 4pm and 11pm on Saturday.
Over 12.3 million concurrent players participated live in Travis Scott’s Astronomical, an all-time record!
