Fortnite: Ariana Grande Rift Tour confirmed following online leaks

Ariana Grande will be featuring in Fortnite for the first time.

After leaks that emerged last week, Fortnite finally confirmed that pop star Ariana Grande will be the special performer for their upcoming event.

The battle royale series has passed the halfway stage for Season 7, the island is currently infested with a swarm of aliens and flying saucers littered around the map.

Epic Games really brought their A-game with this intergalactic twist and are, once again, refusing to rest on their laurels.

The developers have had their fair share of famous faces featuring in Fortnite over the years – most recently Paris Saint-Germain football star Neymar and basketball icon LeBron James.

With the excitement to Season 8 well underway and a mysterious countdown appearing recently in-game, many speculated that Grande would be the next famous face to appear in the franchise.
