Interactive Australian Open exhibition
As part of the Lands Down Under Island, an interactive AO exhibition will be available in Fortnite Creative. Due to the ongoing COVID-pandemic, the Fortnite Summer Smash will take place completely online. In previous years, there was been an interactive fan zone where gamers can play Fortnite, win prizes, and engage with one another. In order to give fans this lived experience, the interactive exhibition was created.
There’s no word on what will be available in the online exhibition yet. However, we can assume it will be something similar to what players experience if they were to come to the Fortnite fan zone. It seems likely that the interactive exhibition will be available to all fans on all servers, but that hasn’t been confirmed yet.
