The coronavirus pandemic may have forced many artists to shelve their concerts. However, BTS has adapted and improvised. The South Korean pop band has collaborated with Epic Games and will be soon seen on Fortnite battle game as a part of a virtual concert to premiere a new version of their hit song Dynamite.
The blockbuster band has promised to showcase a brand new choreography for the music video which will air on September 25 at 8pm EDT. To watch the performance, players will have to head to Party Royale island’s Main Stage.
Epic games describe Party Royale as a new experimental space in Fortnite where users can relax while enjoying minigames or join their friends to attend concerts, movies, and more. Unlike the main Fortnite game, where players can be eliminated based on their gaming skills, Party Royale is a safe space made for virtual relaxation.
