Fortnite is partnering with superstar Australian rapper The Kid LAROI to bring an exclusive, limited-time event to the game this week. In addition to an in-game concert and Afterparty, players will also be able to compete in the Kid LAROI Cup, a special tournament with cosmetic rewards.
Following the concert will be the special Afterparty where players will be able to hang out and learn more about The Kid LAROI.
According to a press release by Epic Games, the main attraction of the limited-time event, The Kid LAROI's Wild Dreams, is available on Jan. 27. The special island, dubbed "Laroitown," has a cyberpunk theme and will culminate in an epic concert featuring songs from across LAROI's discography, including several unreleased songs.
Fortnite The Kid LAROI Cup: All Rewards, How to Play
Before the release of Wild Dreams, players will be able to compete in The Kid LAROI Cup to earn event cosmetics. The Cup uses Duos and No Build rules. To compete in the Cup, players must have Two-Factor Authentication enabled on their account, and they must be Level 15 or above.
Furthermore, the competition is region-based: Each region has a three-hour time window when the competition is to take place. Players can check their region's specific timing by looking at the Compete tab in their game.
Being a top player and scoring eliminations gives points. Earning eight points unlocks the LAROI Banner Icon and LAROI's Smile Emoticon, while being a top player (defined in the event's rules) earns the Kid LAROI Outfit and Rogue LAROI Outfits, as well as the Get My Bag Back Bling and Tragic BLADE Back Bling.
