Epic Outlines Fortnite World Cup Details, $100 Million Prize Pool For 2019
Epic is giving players another reason to perform those Fortnite dances that seem to make old people so upset. The company announced that Fortnite players will have a crack at a prize pool of $100 million during 2019, which includes the Fortnite World Cup.
Open qualifiers begin April 13 and run through June 16, with weekly pools of $1 million getting paid out to eligible battle-royale players. From there, the top 100 solo players and top 50 duos teams will be able to participate in the finals in New York City from July 26-28 – competing for a chunk of a $30 million prize. Everyone who makes it that far is guaranteed $50,000, with the top solo champ taking home $3 million.
In addition to the world cup, Epic says it will be hosting weekly $1 million tournaments throughout the rest of the year, with different modes and formats.
