Travis will be coming to Fortnite with his own miniature in-game "Astronomical" event, which has been described by Epic Games as "an other-worldly experience inspired by Cactus Jack’s creations, built from the ground up in Fortnite." Basically, if you love Travis and want to hear new music from him, you're going to want to park it in-game for one of his "tour dates" coming up very soon for this virtual tour.

  • April 24th: EU & ME, 10 a.m. ET

If you head in-game and check out one of the showtimes, you'll get a new Travis Scott skin as part of the festivities, along with a variety of new emotes and other in-game items. An exclusive glider as well as additional loading screens will be up for grabs for attendees, too. Starting on April 21 (Tuesday), a new series of "Astronomical" challenges will be loaded in for even more goodies.

As far as when you'll hear Travis's new song during the event, that isn't clear just yet. It will likely premiere during one of the slots, likely toward the end, giving players a chance to see what the rapper has put together before visitors potentially log off. It's been since 2018 that Scott released his critically-acclaimed album "Astroworld", so it's about time for a few new tracks from him. Having them debut in Fortnite is a pretty big deal, too. 

If you're a music fan or just like to see how creative developers can be when it comes to fun in-game events, you'll definitely want to pop online and see what "Astronomical" looks like. Judging by the brief glimpses we've seen thus far, it looks like we're in for some surreal skins and items as well as some very unique visuals. Travis has been known for the psychedelic influences on his music, so we'll probably see it reflected in his art as well. It's definitely going to be a one-of-a-kind show.
