Fortnite continues to grind record numbers and, a few hours after landing on Nintendo Switch – albeit with some minor issues related to cross-play with PlayStation 4 – here comes some other interesting news for the fans of Battle Royale.
Epic has announced that in 2019 will be held the first Fortnite World Cup, which all the players will be able to take part in it. The qualifications – on a world scale – will take place in the fall of 2018, while the finals will take place in 2019 forwarded, with a particular focus on single or multiplayer matches. Epic has specified that the event is dedicated expressly to the players of every day since the whole tournament will be based exclusively on merit and there will be no favoritism towards the big teams of the scene or to the representatives of famous brands.
The total prize money will amount to $100,000,000, of which a large share will certainly be reserved for the first place. Meanwhile, Epic announced that the game has reached 125 million users, although it has not specified whether it is active players or registered accounts. In any case, Fortnite is available on almost every existing gaming platform to date, with the sole exception of Android devices, although this gap will be filled very soon. More details will be found at the official post on the Epic games page.
