Celebrating MLK: TIME Studios presents March Through Time in Fortnite

March Through Time in Fortnite Creative is a new experience educating players on Dr. King’s extraordinary life.

“I Have a Dream.”

TIME Studios presents March Through Time, an all-new experience where we celebrate the life and legacy of Nobel Peace Prize recipient, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Developed by members of the Fortnite Creative Community, this immersive journey allows players to witness Dr. Martin Luther King’s full “I Have a Dream” speech.

Experience D.C. 63 

March Through Time will teleport players nearly 60 years in the past to a re-imagined Washington, DC called D.C. 63. Developed by members of the Fortnite Creative community, this fully immersive experience will allow players to witness the Civil Rights teachings of Dr. Martin Luther King. 

This experience was built by members ChaseJackman, GQUanoe, XWDFr, and YU7A. In D.C. 63, players will travel to the Lincoln Memorial and the United States National Mall where Dr. King made his iconic “I Have a Dream” speech.

The Experience will also feature museum-inspired points of interest and quests you can complete with other players. These quests should bring an important reminder that relates to Dr. King’s speech: We move forward when we work together.

Completing the Dr. King and Civil Rights movement challenges will unlock a D.C. 63 spray for your locker.

Inspired by the work of TIME and their partners — JuVee Productions, Digital Domain, V.A.L.I.S.studio, and Ryot — March Through Time would not have been possible without the contributions of American Family Insurance, the DuSable Museum of African American History, and the Estate of Martin Luther King, Jr.

For further in-depth reading and to educate yourself, family, or friends about the historic struggle for Civil Rights, please visit TIME’s The March website. We also hope this experience helps equip students to have meaningful discussions not only in the classroom, but in their personal lives as well. 

Civil Rights is a struggle we still fight for to this day, and it has benefited from the collective efforts of millions of people around the world. We hope the March Through Time  experience inspires the community to promote mutual respect and empathy towards all people no matter their race, religion, or orientation.

  • not the place to do = 100% dislike

    best ting = make games where you can make the main carakter how you want = best way in games !

  • Maybe you guys should add Albert Einstein to the battle pass next

    • Ooooh, especially include segments from his essays on ‘Why Socialism’ is the logical successor to capitalism!

  • He had a dream….but I bet he didn’t have a PS5

  • Just when I thought Fortnite couldn’t sink any lower… Race baiting… Tumors get surgically removed for a reason.
    You are showing zero respect for doing this… grabbing cash anyway you possibly can and you want “respectful” comments… gtfoh…

    • 💯💯💯💯💯

    • For as much as PlayStation talks up “diversity, inclusion,” etc., etc…. This illuminates just how Wonder-Bread white the company truly is. If SIE had ANYTHING remotely reflective of “diversity” at its decision-making levels, this stunt would have been shut down immediately. Because obviously.

  • I am HIGHLY interested in what the analytics would say about this event. How many unique users actually participated or completed the event compared to the entire player base.

    As well, is that paint unlock for commemoration or as an incentive?

  • So woke! 🙌

    Hope the little kids who play Fortnite can learn something out of this 👍

  • I Was in it, nobody Are Helping Each other that makes it hard for everyone else this is harder award to get for People

  • I’m making over $7k a month working part time. I kept hearing other people tell me how much money they can make online so I decided to look into it. Well, it was all true and xfdvbvbhas totally changed my life. This is where i started… 𝗪𝘄𝘄.Income200.𝗰𝗼𝗺

  • As a so-called African American (1968 Indian Civil Act BY MLK JR.) I found this very DISRESPECTFUL!!!! 100%

  • Yes cause the best way to honor Martin Luther King is by putting him in a free shooting game with emotes enabled.
    Think Epic Think!

  • Woah MLK! The guy from fortnite, right?

  • I have claim that spray and black lives matter

  • I’m making over $7k a month working part time. I kept hearing other people tell me how much money they can make online so I decided to look into it. Well, it was all true and has totally changed my life. This is where i started… 𝗪𝘄𝘄.Income200.𝗰𝗼𝗺

  • This was useful

  • I’m not sure if this a idea to present to American.. Do make profit off the deceased’s 😔😔😔

  • Hi Sony can I get any idea when I’ll ever be able to get a PlayStation 5 been waiting for ever now and i sure im not the only one but funny thing is you guys are selling PlayStation 5 to to people who already have a PlayStation 5.

  • As many already stated. This was at best not well thought out at all. At worse a blatant mockery and bastardization of a major historical event and figure. All to try gaining I assume positive PR and financial gains… Definitely got the PR, but not likely the “positive”…

    Tone-deaf is an understatement for this “event” and in my view a insult to MLK and the movement of Civil Rights… Mind I stopped playing Fortnite prior to this sad announcement and stunt… But if I did still play I’d stopped for sure and likely be much angered. Given I did spend a good amount of money in a game I now have a physical disgust for…

    For Sony to collaborate in this “event” further only gives me a negative view of the company. Who uses social, historical, and political issues openly to make a quick buck in the most blatant, offensive, and idiotic way possible…Great job Sony for self censorship on non issue things and blatant “mockery” serious things… Who are the people that ok this stuff or doesn’t see the obvious stupidity/insult…

  • You haven’t deleted this yet, huh?
