'Fortnite' (ALL) $1,000,000 Winter Royale Online Tournament Begins This Weekend

by Rainier on Nov. 20, 2018 @ 9:13 a.m. PST

Fortnite is an expansive original world that invites players to be creative, resourceful and collaborative, combining building skills and destructible environments with intense PvP combat.

In Fortnite, players and their friends lead a group of Heroes to reclaim and rebuild a homeland that has been left empty by a mysterious darkness only known as “the Storm.”

Players will band together online to explore the world for resources, build extravagant forts, find or build insane weapons and traps as they protect their towns from the strange monsters that emerge during the Storm.

Fortnite Battle Royale is the FREE 100-player PvP mode in Fortnite. One giant map. A battle bus.

The last one standing wins.

Epic Games has announced its next phase of Fortnite competitive play: the Winter Royale Online Tournament, where $1,000,000 will be up for grabs to players.

The Online Tournament system will be used next year to determine participants in the Fortnite World Cup. Starting later this month, we will hold a test event that will emulate the World Cup Qualification process. This will help us gather valuable learnings to better prepare for the process next year. 

The Solo test events will consist of two parts, the Winter Royale Qualifiers and the Winter Royale Finals, which will have a total of $1,000,000 in prizes up for grabs. 

There will be several chances for anyone to try and get a high score during the Winter Royale Qualifier days. The highest score you achieve during any event session will be the one that counts, so be sure to give it your all! As part of our ongoing competitive tests to prepare for the Fortnite World Cup, Winter Royale will use the same game settings as the currently available Pop-Up Cup.

The top performers in each region for NA and EU will be verified, and those players found eligible will be invited to participate in the Winter Royale Finals for their region. While this tournament will be restricted to NA and EU, we're planning on holding other region-specific tournaments in additional regions in the near future.

For those interested in competing, our Winter Royale competition dates will be the following:

  • Winter Royale Qualifier (Open): 11/24/2018 - 11/25/2018
  • Europe Winter Royale Finals: 11/30/2018 - 12/1/2018
  • North America Winter Royale Finals: 12/11/2018 - 12/12/2018
