Expect hundreds of thousands of new users to download Fortnite by December 2 to get to Eminem’s first virtual concert.

Now, when both the Epic Games and Em personally shared the news online, the fans finally saw the possibility of connecting with their favourite rapper.

The Fortnite official Instagram account confirmed both Eminem’s skins and his part in the Big Bang event with one picture. And emphasised the message with one line:

The real deal. @Eminem in The Big Bang!

Eminem posted a teaser with the caption:

🛰️ calling all grandmas 12.2

The caption refers to a line from his MTBMB song “Tone Deaf”, which everybody quoted yesterday, “At the crib, playin’ Fortnite with your grandma”.

There is still no official information about when and where exactly the concert happens. For instance, some artists, such as Travis Scott and Kid Laroi, had unique locations for their shows. Players had to choose these locations from the menu or enter a special code to get there. For the Big Bang event with Eminem, the players might expect to use a special tab on the menu.

The Fortnite Big Bang event starts at 11 AM PT / 2 PM ET on Saturday, December 2, 2023. It is 7 PM UK time or 8 PM in Europe. You can log into the game via the Battle Boyale tile half an hour earlier to make sure you and up to four teammates of your party will be admitted on time to see the launch.

Anyone who attends The Big Bang event will also unlock the Marshall Magma Style for the Marshall Never More outfit, whether they purchase the skin before or after.

By the way, about Eminem’s skins. In addition to two versions we learned about yesterday, Slim Shady and Marshall Never More, inspired by Em’s look from the Music to Be Murdered By era, the Epic confirmed the third one, based on another Eminem character, Rap Boy. All outfits with matching accessories will be available in the Item Shop on November 29 from 7 PM ET (midnight UK time). It is still unknown if any other items are in the Eminem bundle.

Among all these uncertainties, one of the reliable Fortnite leakers, ShiinaBR, drops a hint that promises even more surprises:

This live event is NOT just a concert, not at all. Stay excited, it’s gonna be a ride!

People are freaking out, so here's my first and final event leak:

This live event is NOT just a concert, not at all. 💀

Stay excited, it's gonna be a ride!
