BTS, the Korean pop group that has been steadily topping the charts recently, is going to debut a brand-new music video in Fortnite. This is a pretty surprising collaboration, but Epic Games announced it on Monday via a video posted on Twitter featuring the band.

Who is BTS?
It’s highly unlikely that you don’t know who BTS is, but just incase you live in an alternate reality where they’re not Kpop legends, we’ll give you a brief overview.
BTS, otherwise known as the Bangtan Boys, is a seven-member Korean boy band that’s so renowned right now that they’re actually the best-selling artist in K-pop history. The band was formed in 2010 and later debuted by 2013.
BTS has performed their music in multiple venues at this point, including Wembley Stadium, the Rose Bowl, the Grammys, many late night shows, and more.
Their hit single “Dynamite” was released in August 2020, which is actually their first song recorded in English. An A-side and B-side music video for “Dynamite” was already released, so this Fortnite music video will focus on their choreography.
When will BTS release the new video on Fortnite?
The new choreography video for “Dynamite” will debut on Friday, September 25. The music video will be released at 8 p.m. Eastern Time, 5 p.m. Pacific Time, so don’t forget to mark your calendars.
How do I watch it?
BTS will be debuting the music video in Fortnite’s Party Royale mode. This is basically the social hub in the game, a place where players won’t be carrying weapons, It’s a fun, relaxing area where you can just chat, play, or watch the many concerts that Epic Games has featured throughout the years.
Some of the artists previously featured in Fortnite include Diplo, Young Thug, Anderson .Paak, and more. But anyway, going back to BTS…
If you haven’t played Fortnight before, you’ll need to download the game first. You can do so from different storefronts, either from the Epic Game Store, your PlayStation 4, Xbox One, or Nintendo Switch. If you’re a PC user, you can simply head on over to this link and click on the download button on the upper-right corner.
After the game has successfully downloaded and you’ve made an account, the next thing you’ll want to do is enter the Party Royale mode. It’s simple: just click on the “Change” button, which you can find on the right side of the main menu.
Then, choose Party Royale mode and hit play.
Once you’re on the Party Royale island, you need to head on over to the main stage. You will find it highlighted on the image below:
It’s highly recommended that you attend a few minutes early because during events where there is most likely going to be high traffic, you can expect a lot of Fortnite players trying to get in.
This means that the queue will probably take awhile. On the bright side, Epic Games has a knack for ensuring that everyone gets in, but it’s definitely better to just be safe by arriving early.
If you’re just getting into the game all thanks to this talented band, there are so many things you can do in Fortnite besides shooting players. For instance, you can try out the creative mode, which showcases impressive user-created maps.
