Royal Caribbean has just opened a new way to explore the upcoming Icon of the Seas by using the popular video game Fortnite.
In a game called Hide ‘N’ Sea, Fornite gamers can explore Icon of the Seas through two of the ship’s neighborhoods.
The playable rendering of the ship was built using Fortnite Creative in this new addition to the metaverse.
Gamers can play the hide-and-seek game and collect coins as they wander through Thrill Island and The Hideaway.
The virtual unveiling of the ship in the metaverse is another signal that the cruise line is increasing its efforts to reach families and younger travelers. The popular video game Fortnite has almost 400 million registered users worldwide.
Players of the game can get a virtual first-hand look at what will be the largest water park at sea or just wander about the water slides and ropes course.
While not all areas of the ship are available in the game, gamers can check out The Hideaway Pool, the first floating infinity pool built on a cruise ship.
Other popular Royal Caribbean classics like FlowRider are also in the game, including plenty of props gamers can pick up and move around the deck as they get a good look at the exciting ship.
