Epic Games’ recent update to Fortnite, featuring the Fortnite Festival, a rhythm-based mini-game, has sparked excitement and curiosity among gamers. Fans of classic rhythm games like Rock Band and Guitar Hero have a particularly intriguing question: Will their beloved guitar controllers be compatible with Fortnite Festival?
Rock Band and Guitar Hero Controllers in Fortnite Festival
Currently, Fortnite Festival is playable using a keyboard and mouse on PC, and standard console controllers. However, in a groundbreaking move, Epic Games announced plans to integrate Rock Band and Guitar Hero guitar controllers, drums, keyboards, and other instruments into Fortnite Festival. This integration is scheduled for a future update, with more details expected in 2024.
Epic Games’ Official Statement
Epic Games confirmed on their official website: “Will Fortnite Festival support instruments as controllers? They won’t be available at launch, but it’s a priority for the team, and we are currently working on it. Expect updates in 2024.”
