Ariana Grande is the latest musician to deliver a digitally-rendered performance in the hit battle royale game Fortnite.

The “Thank U, Next” singer-songwriter follows in the footsteps of artists including Travis Scott, whose event last year attracted an audience of 12.3m concurrent players, breaking the game’s record at the time.

Grande is set to perform as part of the game’s Rift Tour series of concerts.

The event is scheduled for several performances throughout next weekend, with times spaced out to ensure players around the world can attend.

“Working with Epic and the Fortnite team to bring my music to life inside the game has been so fun and such an honour,” said Grande.

“I can’t wait to join my fans and see all of your reactions to such an unforgettable, magical journey to new realities.”
