The biggest star of the event will be Ariana Grande. Asides from the concert event, the international superstar will also be featured in the game as the next Icon Series skin.
These are just some details that we currently know about the Rift Tour event, as Epic wants to keep much of it under wraps, but if you want to know more details, check out the Fortnite v17.30 patch notes.
The event brings a number of other new cosmetics for players to purchase or obtain for free through various challenges, including a free Rift Tour umbrella glider which you will earn as a reward for attending the in-game events.
But, if you are an active Fortnite Crew subscriber, then you will be happy to hear that there are some special goodies for Fortnite Crew subscribers as well.
Rift Tour Crew Pack bonus items
Everyone who is currently an active Fortnite Crew subscriber will be eligible to earn three exclusive Rift Tour items available only to Crew Pack members.
If you are a Crew member, you don't need to pay anything else, nor to complete some challenges or attend any events.
All you need to do is to log in to Fortnite during the short period these items will be available, and they will automatically be added to your inventory of items.
Keep in mind that unlike other standard Crew Pack monthly items, which are available for a full month, these exclusive Rift Tour cosmetics will be here only for a limited time, so make sure to grab them while you can.
Rift Tour Crew Pack bonus items will be available starting 5th August at 10 am ET / 7 am PM / 4 pm CET until 10h August at 10 am ET / 7 am PM / 4 pm CET.
Ariana Grande Icon Series cosmetics will become available in the in-game shop on 4th August, and the upcoming Rift Tour event is scheduled to start on 6th August.
