During yesterday’s Fortnite E3 Pro-Am tournament, developer Epic Games shared more details about its plans for Fortnite‘s first season of competitive play.
The season will run until late 2019 and culminates in the Fortnite World Cup. Qualifiers are scheduled to begin for the World Cup in fall of this year and will be made up of organized events, online events, and major organized competitions.
World Cup play will focus on Solos and Duos, and anyone will be able to participate, according to the developer. As well as this, the previously announced $100,000,000 prize pool for competitive play will be split between many events at different levels of competition around the globe.
“This is for you, the players,” the developer added. “Qualifications for the Fortnite World Cup will be based on merit. Epic will not be selling teams or franchises, and won’t allow third-party leagues to do so either.”
More information about the rules of entry, supported platforms, and a schedule of events will be shared soon.
