Epic Games Officially Reveals Fortnite’s In-Game Tournaments

With the release of patch v.610, the game's new In-Game Tournaments mode, located in the Events section in "Fornite Battle Royale", players can compete alongside others of all backgrounds, including professionals, for prizes and other goodies.

In-game tournaments will be cross-platform, so you'll need to opt into crossplay to participate. Each tournament will have a target score and players who reach the target will earn an in-game pin to mark the achievement.

However, as players earn points they will find themselves matched against players with similar point totals. New in-game Tournaments are also coming to Battle Royale, via the new "Events" tab, among other things.

The first tournament will be played in a solo playlist. This will be the first time Fortnite players get in-game tournaments for multiple playlists.

Epic Games will not be separating payers across different platforms, meaning players armed with controllers will be pitted against players with keyboards and mice. God help the touch players.

The game devs hope this will shine a light "onto the world's best players, increasing prize pools and player exposure from our competitions".

Kangaroos' new era marred by shock NZ loss
While New Zealand dominated possession and territory in the first half, Australia began and ended the spell with tries which gave it a lead at halftime.

Anyone that is interested in participating in the tournaments has several opportunities to do so over the next week.

Description: Grab a friend and take on the world - until you are the last two left.

The legal issue stems from the fact that injecting any code into Fortnite that modifies the game itself violates Epic's copyrights, a violation that is only further aggravated by the fact that both defendants regularly shared video of the cheats in action.

Fortnite is available now for PC, console, and mobile.

Description: One week and three attempts to prove you're the saltiest that Salty Springs has to offer. All the details can be found on Epic's announcement page. They will continue to monitor competitive results and are already considering limiting some esports competitions to specific platforms or control devices in the future.
