Fortnite players can now start earning exclusive new Marshmello rewards ahead of the artist’s in-game concert on February 2.

There are four altogether, but sadly the Marshmello model that leaked in data files earlier this week isn’t one of them. You can look forward to a new spray, emote, and pickaxe, however.

Epic Games still hasn’t confirmed the event, which is a first for video games, but the first Showtime challenge is to find a poster that clearly states Marshmello will be in Pleasant Park this weekend.

The concert kicks off at 2 p.m. ET on Saturday, February 2. It will only happen once, so you won’t want to miss it. While you’re waiting, you can complete the Showtime challenges.

The first, which is to find the Showtime poster, will earn you a Mello Made it Right spray.

It’s not yet clear what you’ll need to do to complete the other two — they unlock tomorrow — but they’ll give you the Keep it Mello emote and a sweet Marshy Smasher pickaxe.

Once you’ve completed all three, you will also be rewarded with a unique banner.

Where’s the Marshmello skin?

We still don’t know Epic’s plans for the Marshmello skin that has appeared in Fortnite game files.

It is likely the player model that will be used for the event this weekend, but there’s a chance Epic will also make it available to purchase from the item shop. It would almost certainly sell well.
