Fortnite’s Party Royale is boasting some international sensations who will blow up the island’s Main Stage this week with “Dynamite”: BTS.
The K-pop septet will light up the gaming platform’s no-combat, just-chill mode with an exclusive “Dynamite” music video featuring never-before-seen choreography this Friday, Sept. 25 at 8 p.m. ET (Saturday, Sept. 26 at 9 a.m. KST). And starting Wednesday, Sept. 23 at 8 p.m. ET (Thursday, Sept. 24 at 9 a.m. KST), players can purchase the “BTS Dynamite Pack” that has two dance emotes who move just like RM, Jin, Suga, J-Hope, Jimin, V, and Jungkook. The pack of emotes costs 800 V-bucks.
Following the new video, Fortnite players can head to the “Dynamite (Tropical Remix)” karaoke listening party. And if any ARMY members think they might miss the premiere, Epic Games will be re-broadcast it 12 hours later right back at Party Royale’s Main Stage.
“We’re always looking to partner with talented artists who are interested in pushing boundaries and finding innovative ways to reach fans,” said Nate Nanzer, Head of Global Partnerships at Epic Games. “BTS is not only incredibly popular worldwide, but their talent, creativity, and forward-thinking attitude made them a perfect match. We’re honored to host their premiere.”
