"Navigating distribution rights for different countries and languages for full movies is challenging. As part of this first test, we wanted as many people to experience Movie Nite as possible. The film you'll be able to watch will depend on your country, and unfortunately we couldn't reach everyone with these screenings. We believe the idea of getting together with your friends and family at Party Royale to watch a movie is powerful and exciting, and we're looking at ways to increase global participation in the future," Epic Games said in a news post.
Fortnite Party Royale is an experimental feature in Epic Games' battle royale letting the developer test out new mediums in the game.
Players can head to the official Party Royale page to figure out participating countries, which movie is airing in their country and, of course, showtimes. Actual movie theaters might still be closed amid the COVID-19 pandemic, but Epic Games is trying to create a fun alternative in Fortnite.
