Why the Marshmello x Fortnite concert is such a big deal

Some Marshmellow-related items will be available in the game too.

Marshmello, whose real name is Christopher Comstock, actually has the in-game concert listed as an upcoming show on his website.

Fortunately for those are not wanting to get eliminated constantly during the show, the Showtime Squads LTM will disable the ability for players to use weapons when the Fortnite Marshmellow live concert event begins its encore performance at its scheduled time in the same way it did earlier Saturday.

What's going on: "Fortnite" - the battle royale game that has swept the nation - has chose to drop a number of items related to Marshmello, who is a trance music DJ, according to Forbes. The Marshmello Showtime poster was then leaked which stated the time and location of the event, and was later confirmed by Marshmello himself on Twitter. Previous data mining from patch v7.20 uncovered a secret Marshmello music video, which will presumably debut with his concert. Guests were given special Marshmello themed skins and a pickaxe.

Epic disabled the ability to shoot other players for the duration of the event to make sure no one tried to play silly buggers and ruin it for anyone else. How much to be exact?

Sources are telling me there were more than *10 million concurrent players* watching the @marshmellomusic concert in @FortniteGame today - on top of the millions watching online.

Just head over to the football field in the game and you'll see that preparation work for a music event is underway.
