If you’re into gaming, Dubai Summer Surprises in partnership with ITP Gaming and PS4, is hosting a ten-day gaming extravaganza, which will include the launch of Fortnite Season 10.

The gaming festival, featuring Fortnite and PS4, will take place at Festival Square, Dubai Festival City Mall, from Thursday July 25 until Saturday August 3.

The event will give fans the chance to meet their favourite Fortnite characters, snap a selfie with Fortnite pickaxes and participate in emote challenges, before Season 10 officially launches globally on Thursday August 1.

The Fortnite extravaganza is open to all, with fans invited to stop by the activation between 3pm and midnight to play the game, Shoppers who spend a minimum of AED300 at Dubai Festival City Mall are eligible to register and compete in a gameplay competition, where players with the highest daily score will be invited to play with influencers.

Players are able to choose whether they want to play Fortnite in Arabic or English, as the recently-launched Fortnite Season 9 (and soon-to-be launched Season 10) offers versions of the game in both languages.

“Dance Royale” challenges will also be taking place throughout the event, where fans have the opportunity to show off their Fortnite dance skills on stage for a chance to win prizes, while gamers will have the chance to compete against some of the biggest content creators in the Middle East including Mo Vlogs, Dyler, DJ Bliss and Ahmed Al Nasheet.

Throughout the entire length of the gaming extravaganza, fans are encouraged to share the experience on social media, tagging the following channels and hashtags: @fortniteme, @playstation_me, @dsssocial, @dubaifestivalcitymall and #myDSS.
