A new PS4-exclusive Fortnite tournament featuring a $1 million prize pool and in-game rewards for players will take place on February 15, developer Epic Games and Playstation have announced.
This two-day tournament will kick off on February 15, and anyone with a Fortnite account that is level 15 or higher can participate. The tournament is a welcome announcement for console players, considering that Fortnite tournament play has been mostly on PC.
While many tournaments dish out prizes exclusively to the top placing players, all you have to do is place in the top 50% to receive some sort of prize. This cup will be region-based, so to earn a prize, you’ll have to beat out the other competitors in your region. Playstation has also revealed that two-factor authentication is a must to be eligible.
