Fortnite Music Callout and Video Player Release

Calling all creators! We’re looking for the most exciting and engaging experiences you can design as we dive deeper into the musical possibilities in Fortnite. 

As part of this callout, all creators will now have access to the Video Player device, which they can use to broadcast a set of preloaded music videos created by the talented dogged. Creators can use just one or string them together for a unique music-led island experience.

Add the Video Player to your Island and select any of the five music videos listed below to design your own experience! Your media choices include:

“Come on Down”

“In the Clouds”

“Jungle Jam”

“Rifting Reality”

“Toon Takeover”

And for those who want to design a more extended experience, “Jukebox Joint” is available as a long-form compilation of all the other music videos. 

CALLOUT CRITERIA

  • Only one map per creator will be accepted
  • Make the music the star of the show
    • While engaging gameplay and visuals are appreciated, make sure what you do enhances rather than distracts from the music and the music video. If music is not the central focus of the experience, your map will not be selected for feature.
  • We’re looking for high-quality experiences
    • Fully functional maps that use devices well set effective boundaries and are highly polished make for a better player experience and make your map more likely to be featured. 
  • Prioritize Innovation
    • Boundary pushing and never before seen designs will undoubtedly grab our attention. 
  • Submission videos must be complete
    • The submission video must show the entire experience, or it will be automatically rejected.
  • Submissions must be entirely new work
    • Any map considered for featuring must be a brand new creation published during the callout period.
  • Trailers encouraged
    • Including a captivating trailer for your island is not required but highly encouraged.

ADDITIONAL CONSIDERATIONS

While not required, we are also making a custom themed music callout template available for creators. To load it, head to the Creative Hub and use the Console to create a new island. When selecting a type, choose Template Islands, and look for the one labelled Music Experience Callout. Once you confirm your selection, you can name your island and begin creating!
