What Is The Fortnite Rift Tour

The Fortnite Rift Tour appears to be an upcoming in-game event that will release in stages and ultimately result in some more live concerts.

A logo, social tab and cosmetics have been decrypted and leaked so far. It also appears that the first stage of the countdown event is live in-game leading fans to believe the two are linked.

Despite the first set of portals going live in Fortnite, it's not believed that this is linked to the Rift Tour as of right now.

There currently appears to be a total of four challenges, with the most intriguing being 'Attend the Rift Tour'. This challenge and the way it is worded is what leads up to our next point.
