Millions of people are thought to have tuned into a concert by DJ Marshmello in the wildly popular online game Fortnite.

The event looks like it'll be held as a limited time match called Party at Pleasant Park, in which players will be able to respawn so they can duke it out during the show. "So insane, thank you Epic Games and everyone who made this possible!" For the duration of the 10-minute show at Pleasant Park, which was broadcast across thousands of servers, weapons were disabled and respawns turned on so players could concentrate on deploying dance emotes instead of murder. Additional items could be unlocked through a challenge quest.

League of Legends developer Riot Games has been using the success of its virtual K-Pop group K/DA to pivot into a "full-fledged music studio" after their song POP / STARS debuted at number one on the Billboard world digital song sales chart in November.

While you wait for the Showtime Event to begin, don't forget to check out the trio of Showtime Challenges that are still available. Doing so will reward you with a special Marshmello spray. He teamed up with Fortnite megastar Ninja to win the Fortnite Pro-Am at E3 past year, winning the $1 million.

The in-game set even appeared on Marshmello's tour schedule (via Kotaku), and the DJ also announced the news on Twitter ahead of the concert. Like most events, you'll probably need to be in a non-Playground game mode to watch it unfold.
