Epic Games has partnered with South Korean pop boy band BTS to debut a never-before-seen music video inside Fortnite.
The seven-member boy band from South Korea will premiere a choreography version video of its single “Dynamite” at the Party Royale’s Main Stage.
The video will be available to watch on Friday at 8:00pm EDT at Fortnite’s Party Royale mode, a non-violent space for users to relax, catch concerts and watch movies without the threat of being killed by other players. Following the premiere, an afterparty featuring karaoke graphics will also be available to players. A bundle featuring two emotes choreographed after BTS will also be available to purchase for 800 V-bucks from Wednesday.
“We’re always looking to partner with talented artists who are interested in pushing boundaries and finding innovative ways to reach fans,” said Epic Games’ Head of Global Partnerships Nate Nanzer. “BTS is not only incredibly popular worldwide, but their talent, creativity, and forward-thinking made them a perfect match. We’re honoured to host their premiere.”
Dynamite is the band’s latest single, which was released last month at No.1 on the Billboard Hot 100. It maintained that spot for a fortnight, a record-breaking feat for a Korean pop act. The official music video also had over a hundred million views on YouTube, becoming the platform’s most viewed music video within that time frame.
This isn’t the first time a music act has performed inside Fortnite. Earlier this year, Travis Scott performed an entire concert inside the game, where for a short time players could freely run around as a giant Scott stomped around the island.
Fortnite is available as a free download on Android from the official Epic Games website.
