Marshmello and Epic Games made history yesterday, by throwing a live concert inside of Fortnite.
There was obviously a lot to coordinate and much that could have gone wrong, but it went off without a hitch. Which has some players wondering how much of the performance was recorded ahead of time.
Well, Marshmello has confirmed that the event was not pre-recorded — and was broadcast live.
In the video below, Jack ‘CourageJD’ Dunlop asks Mello point blank: “Your voice and everything, that was all pre-recorded right?”
Marshmello responds: “That was all live, man! That was the whole thing, so you know, in the very early workings of it all we weren’t sure what could be handled as far as bandwidth and stuff like live voice, and live everything.”
“But they (Epic) took their time and figured it all out and when it was time to go they had it all sorted. Stuff like that is what makes it next level.”
The event clocked in around 10 minutes, so yeah it would have been a little disappointing if it were pre-recorded. Watch below!
