The tour is a partnership between Epic Games and the rapper’s label Cactus Jack Records.
Epic Games previously announced the tour, Scott’s inclusion into the game’s ‘Icon Series’ and the concert’s in-game items on Monday. Anyone who tunes into Scott’s last North American concert on Saturday will receive the rapper’s outfits, emotes, an ‘Astroworld Cyclone Glider’ and two loading screens.
