ORIGINAL ARTICLE (JANUARY 23, 2023)
A new artist enters the Fortnite Icon Series!
Since his ascent in 2019, Australian rapper, singer, and songwriter The Kid LAROI has become a global force to be reckoned with, and soon his emotional bangers and dramatic beats will sound inside Fortnite. Jump into The Kid LAROI’s Wild Dreams island starting Friday, January 27, 2023, at 6 PM ET, for an immersive sonic experience portraying LAROI’s journey from humble beginnings to headlining sold-out performances as a worldwide superstar.
This island will feature new music from LAROI, including his upcoming song “Love Again” being released Friday, January 27. Also, three unreleased songs will play in both this island and the Afterparty island.
Before The Kid LAROI’s Wild Dreams goes live, The Kid LAROI and The Rogue LAROI Outfits will be available in the Fortnite Item Shop beginning January 26. And before even this, compete in The Kid LAROI Cup on January 24 for an opportunity to unlock the Outfits early, plus a special Banner Icon and Emoticon!
The Kid LAROI’s Wild Dreams
In this interactive experience, players will quest throughout the cybercity “Laroitown,” ultimately attending a jam-packed LAROI concert featuring fan-favorite music and new music. Following the performance, players can join LAROI for the Afterparty. In the Afterparty, listen to the Wild Dreams mix on loop and get a look at the life of LAROI — both on tour and beyond.
During both experiences, players can complete The Kid LAROI's Wild Dreams Quests for XP and special LAROI items, including the Love Again and Thousand Miles Lobby Tracks, the LAROI & The Rogue Loading Screen, and the LAROI Was Here and LAROI’s Tag Sprays.
