Fortnite attracts millions of users to its in-game virtual concerts and the popular online video game is partnering with Warner Bros for an in-game movie screening event. The cinema-style screening experience unites players who want to virtually come together to see three films: Inception, Batman Begins and The Prestige.
Players need to journey to the Big Screen on Party Royale island. Like the traditional theater experience, the screening is set for a specific time but thanks to its format, players are free to jump in and out as they need, which supports a more casual viewing experience.
The global pandemic has changed the way the movie industry distributes new films and this virtual experience offers an entertaining alternative to drive-in screenings or on-demand home viewing.
