What Is the Rift Tour?
The Rift Tour is a limited-time event coming to Fortnite. What we know so far is that Ariana Grande will be ‘headlining’ the event, so chances are you’ll be watching an enormous hologram version of the pop-start dancing and strutting around the island blasting out her most iconic tracks.
In addition to Ariana Grande’s performance, it’s also been announced that ‘the Rift Tour kicks off with Fortnite-themed experiences — pairing popular tracks with moments base on elements from the game.
Ariana will also be made available as an in-game skin from the Item Shop starting Wednesday, August 4 at 8pm ET. She has a Piggy Smallz Back Bling, shown in the trailer below:
The Fortnite Rift Tour event will be similar to the Travis Scott experience that took place last summer, which saw an enormous hologram of the rapper bopping around the island while players experienced all manner of trippy visuals and effects.
Are There Rewards?
Yes, there are!
Players will earn this Cuddle Team Leader-inspired Cuddly Cloudcruiser umbrella just for attending the event.
In addition to this, players can unlock quest items before, during and after the the Rift Tour event takes place. These rewards are more cosmetic items, and will be limited to the event (from what can be gathered from the official news post) so make sure you claim these if you’re a collector!
