Yesterday, players finally experienced the much anticipated Ariana Grande Concert in Fortnite. The 12-minute long event packed a variety of things and a few subtle storyline-related hints as well. While some players felt that Ariana's presence and her concert could have been bigger, others were just happy to see their favorite star in the game. Epic ingeniously scattered crafty details during the event, which were a great distraction to observe.
Here are 5 important details you probably missed during the Ariana Grande Concert in Fortnite.
Fortnite Season 7: 5 subtle details in the Ariana Grande Concert
1) The Way
During the Rift Tour event, there was a brief moment where players felt Ariana's touch come to life. The opening minutes of "The Way," featuring Ariana and the late Mac Miller, was a great inclusion. Mac Miller was Ariana's boyfriend, and the pair were in a relationship for two years. Mac died of an accidental drug overdose at the age of 26. This song was a great way to tribute to the late artist, and it suggests more Ariana than Epic, which is a good thing.
2) Raindrops (an angel cried)
This is one of the most popular and hit songs by Ariana Grande, and it is no surprise that it was present in the Rift Tour. This song came after the moment of togetherness (where every player picked others up). It was a glorious showcase of Ariana's powerful voice and Epic's conception. The lyrics felt just right and were great in setting up the mood.
While true fans will know everything about the song, for the uninitiated, Ariana inaugurated her 2019 Sweetener tour with this song.
3) Kevin the Cube
Epic did scatter a few storyline bits here and there during the Rift Tour in Fortnite Season 7. The developers very sneakily placed the cube during the commencement of the event when players get sucked into a rift portal. Here, players saw a variety of things and Kevin the Cube. There have been rumors that it will make a return sometime during the Fortnite Season 7 finale and can play a role in Fortnite Season 8.
After bouncing and dancing to some grooves, players were greeted with a dark screen. A Cuddle Team Leader emerged in front of players, and players were then handed guns to defeat the Storm King from "Fortnite: Save the World" while riding the plane.
This marks the first time planes have been Fortnite ever since being vaulted back in early 2021. Can this be a hint that the airplanes will make a comeback to the game? With Epic on the driving wheel, anything is possible.
