Lady Gaga and The Weeknd have previously teamed up with the video game.

Couldn’t score tickets to the last Billie Eilish tour? Fortnite is bringing fans the next best thing. The game’s third season of its Rock Band-esque Festival experience went live Tuesday (April 23), featuring the 22-year-old pop star as its featured artist.

To celebrate the launch, Fortnite shared a trailer featuring Eilish. In the clip, her avatar — dressed in a patterned shirt and pants combo with matching sneakers, her roots dyed bright green as they were in 2019 — falls through a portal in the sky and crashes into Earth, leaving a fiery explosion in her wake.

With callbacks to the tiara of spiders and paranormal levitations in her “You Should See Me in a Crown” and “Bury a Friend” music videos, the trailer eventually finds the singer making her way to the digital stage, jumping and spinning around while performing her track “All the Good Girls Go to Hell.” ]

“you should see her in a crown,” reads the video’s caption, referencing Eilish’s hit When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? track. “@billieeilish has arrived as our featured artist for Fortnite Festival Season 3, live now!”

Players will be able to unlock new Eilish-themed outfits in the game, instruments and Jam Tracks, which will be available to players until June 13. Eilish’s participation in Fortnite Festivals follows those of Lady Gaga (season two) and The Weeknd (season one).

Midway through her tenure in the game, the two-time Oscar winner will release her third studio album, Hit Me Hard and Soft, on May 17. Last week, Eilish shared the project’s tracklist, featuring the titles “Skinny,” “Lunch,” “L’Amour De Ma Vie,” “Blue,” “Wildflower” and more.

“Every time you put anything out, it feels like your nudes leaked a little bit,” she told Zane Lowe of the record in a recent Apple Music 1 interview. “We kind of made the album that if somebody had said, ‘I want you to make an album and no one is going to hear it. You don’t have to worry about anyone’s ears or opinions or anything at all. It’s in your contract to make an album but no one can hear it.’ We pretty much made that album. We made that album without much thought of other people.”
