BTS is coming to Fortnite and you don’t want to miss it. Later this week, the world premiere of the music video for BTS’ single “Dynamite” will take place on the Party Royale main stage. Not only that, but all-new emotes choreographed by BTS themselves will be available in the Item Shop to commemorate the event. Like most Party Royale events, the BTS Dynamite premiere will only be available for a limited time. If you miss the main event, there will only one additional replay, so don’t miss it live when it happens. Here’s everything you need to know about the BTS Dynamite event in Fortnite.
How to Watch the BTS Dynamite Event in Fortnite
To watch the BTS event in Fortnite, all you have to do is jump into Party Royale on September 25 at 8 PM ET. If you’ve never been to a live Fortnite event before, then just follow these steps from Epic Games themselves below.
- In the Lobby screen, press the “Change” box located in the bottom-right corner.
- Modes will appear on-screen. Select the “Party Royale” mode tile then press “Accept.”
- After pressing “Accept, you’ll return to the Lobby screen. Just press “Play” to start!
- Head to the Main Stage and wait for the event to start. Use the map button while in Party Royale to see where you are and the location of the Main Stage.
If you can’t find the Main Stage, look for the ice cream shop called “SOFDEEZ.” It’s near The Plaza where you first spawn in after selecting Party Royale. Follow the road to the right of the ice cream shop. You’ll see a disco ball sign along the way if you’re heading in the right direction. Cross the bridge and you should see the Main Stage where the event will take place. If you get lost, it’s on the east coast of the island near the center.
