Game tournaments are coming to Fortnite tomorrow, here's how to join in

Epic Games revealed the in-game Events system earlier today, saying that the first version of open, online competition will be available in the 6.1 update.

Fortnite tournaments will support crossplay - in fact, you need to opt in to crossplay to participate.

Fortnite still doesn't have a full-fledged competitive esports mode, and probably won't for a while, but Epic Games have just announced In-Game Tournaments will be part of their next update.

"Battle Royale" is adding tournaments to its roster of in-game events.

Epic plans to integrate new modes, scoring formats, and extended tournaments in the coming months. "Each tournament has a series of scheduled dates and times during which the competition will be run", Epic said. Fortnite tournaments will be scheduled events that are open to all players that last several hours.

These new Tournaments will be available for everyone to play, and Epic's official announcements page describing them a chance to "compete directly alongside the pros for prizes and glory". Players will be awarded points based on how long they survive, and how many players they eliminate during each battle royale.

There will be a target score to reach during each tournament, and reaching said score will net participants a special pin to celebrate their accomplishments. In-Game Tournaments will also let keyboard and mouse, controller, and touch players compete against each other.

"We've been observing the performance of controller players in our Summer Skirmish, PAX West, and Fall Skirmish tournaments while playing against mouse and keyboard players at the highest levels of competition".

Epic says that grouping everyone into a single competition group will increase visibility for the best players and help increase prize pools.

The first "Fortnite" in-game tournament, which is open to players of all ages and skill levels, is set to begin October 16.

Description: Become legends of the Tomato Temple Cup.
