Party Royale was uncovered by prolific Fortnite dataminer Lucas7yoshi before Epic officially unveiled and launched the mode in a late April update. The mode removes all weapons from the game, providing a chill experience for players to get together with friends, check out in-game activities, "perfect their skydive," and more.

Fortnite recently partnered with American psychedelic rapper Travis Scott for the Astronomical concert, a two-day event that saw more than 27.7 million unique players who participated 45.8 million times across the five showings. This was a record high for the battle royale title. Earlier this month, Epic held a Party Royale concert that featured music by Diplo and a purchasable Major Lazer skin pack. Overall, Fortnite has more than 350 million registered players to date.
