ANAHEIM, Calif., June 20, 2023 – Milk (yes, real dairy milk), is excited to debut Zany Ziplines — a game concept the Fortnite community highly requested. The game offers three first of its kind maps (Spacemap, Medieval Map, and Steampunk Map) featuring a series of floating platforms connected by elaborate ziplines where sixteen players battle it out in a last man standing free for all.
Zany Ziplines will launch via a live-streamed tournament on Twitch and TikTok from the gaming zone at VidCon Anaheim on June 22 at the Anaheim Convention Center. Sixteen players including xChocoBars, Whitney, Chica, Krystalogy, and more will compete as duos in a battle royale style tournament until the last team standing is crowned champion. Following the tournament, the game will be released publicly on Fortnite. VidCon attendees will be able to play the game at the Milk booth on-site, while non-attendees can try their hand at home. In a continued effort to support and celebrate gaming performance, Milk continues to be the Performance Drink of Gamers as an official sponsor of VidCon Anaheim 2023, where digital culture takes center stage as the world’s leading digital creators, platform innovators, and their fans converge in one place.
