More Ways to Compete in Fortnite
Despite the game being out for a little over a year, it has quickly become one of the fastest-rising esports. The $1 million Fortnite Fall Skirmish tournament concluded last month, with FaZe Tfue and Cloakzy taking the $400,000 grand prize.
Epic Games have stated the Fortnite Winter Royale Tournament is a trial for the upcoming Fortnite World Cup 2019. Much like with Winter Royale, the World Cup will be open for every player to qualify through the Fortnite tournament system, allowing for complete inclusivity.
There are also other paid online tournament systems and plenty of opportunities for anyone to play Fortnite for money. Expect to see it become an even bigger esport game in 2019.
