The All Blacks and Black Ferns to squad up and play Fortnite this Wednesday with LPL

04 Jun 18

As previously reported, Let's Play Live (LPL) is hosting a new show with NZ celebrities playing Fortnite. The first guests are several sports stars. 

The first episode of LPL's "The Night Squad" TV show is airing on June 6th, 2018 starting at 7pm. The first episode will feature several members of the All Blacks and Black Ferns teaming up to try their best at playing Fortnite. 

The show will be streamed live on both Twitch.tv as well as on allblacks.com and is being done to popularise online gaming as well as Kiwi culture. Money will also be raised during the broadcast for charity so donations are welcome. 

“Gaming is absolutely for everybody, but sometimes it can be misunderstood,” says host and kiwi gaming personality Amy Potter aka HelloMissPotter. “It makes me very happy to be able to showcase video games, and entertain an audience that may have never watched someone else live streaming games before! The Night Squad is kind of like a radio show, where instead of playing music we play games.”

The Night Squad show will be airing on Twitch for the next eight weeks every Wednesday and promises to include a new set of NZ celebrities each and every week.
