It’s being called by the team “the most ambitious thing Club Penguin Rewritten has ever done”, and nobody is exactly sure how this is going to work; the only precedent for it seems to be takeovers like the Music Jam in 2014 with characters like Violetta.
On April 2nd, at 5pm PT / 8pm ET / 1am BST, a virtual concert will occur on places across the island. It should last approximately 45 minutes.
Update: regarding the date, it is likely on April 3rd BST – the team isn’t sure, but it’s based on the assumption that the group provided the date in their timezone and just transferred it over (thanks SlimF!)
If you’re worried about missing the concert, fear not! A new feature is going to be introduced just for this called room sharing which will prevent people from missing out, but you’d need to be online at the exact time.
I should note the feature will be temporary and exclusive to this event.
We’ll be introducing a new feature to Club Penguin Rewritten for the event we’re calling room sharding. This means that no matter how many people join a room they’ll be able to join in the experience and witness the event live due to multiple copies of the room.
If the concerned room is full on a server it’ll create a new copy of that room for new people to join so servers can hold as much people as possible in the live concert room.-Thorn, Club Penguin Rewritten administrator
I must admit, I’ve never even heard of this group before, and I’m really not sure how this will work. My understanding is that their music (a family friendly version, at least) will be played in-game, whilst characters visit.
These characters will provide items instead of a background, and will have a similar playercard to regular mascots. Trackers will be established if appropriate.
They’re the real people showing up and a live Questions & Answers [session] with some items given away if you do see them there. They’ll have a playercard but no background given away-stu, Club Penguin Rewritten administrator
I know that a lot of people, including myself, initially thought that this was an April Fools prank. I can assure you that it isn’t, but the details still aren’t completely clear – we’ll just need to wait until Thursday.
