How to access the O2 Arena in ‘Fortnite’ and watch the Easy Life concert
London’s O2 Arena is now free to explore in Fortnite, although the place is only accessible for the rest of the week.
The virtual event is the result of a partnership between O2, the British music label Island Records and Fortnite developer Epic Games. Formerly known as the Millennium Dome, the world-famous entertainment venue has been meticulously recreated in online battle royale, but with some fictional expansion behind the scenes, so players have something to do.
Among other things, you can hunt collectibles, ride a giant hamster ball, overcome a challenging obstacle course, and surf in a custom wave pool. Of course, there are rewards for participating in these activities, including new pieces of music for the Fortnite lobby and cosmetic spray paint “Squeezy Life”.
In order to assemble the concert hall in the game, O2 recruited Fortnite creators KKslider, DolphinDom and Team Cre8. In addition to building the virtual space and its various mini-games, this ingenious team also helped prepare the arena for an online concert that will take place next Thursday.
On that note, R&B group Easy Life will become the very first UK group to perform a set in Fortnite. Starting at 3:30 p.m. ET on June 24, the concert will not only be a musical performance, but a fully interactive experience.
Players will be transported to six exotic locations (each inspired by a different track from the band’s album) where they can interact with the show in exciting ways, while enjoying the video game setting. For example, you can get swallowed by a monstrous fish, and you can even tour a futuristic metropolis on a hoverboard.
Commenting on the event, Wertandrew, Lead Community Creator at Team Cre8, said, “Music has always been a passion alongside level design and we are absolutely delighted to have been involved in a project that combines the of them. This is the first time that an experience has been offered. an iconic venue and interactive show, both built from the ground up by Fortnite creators for gamers and music fans around the world to enjoy. “
