As it turns out, that in-game tournament system that Epic added to Fortnite Battle Royale recently isn’t necessarily just for fun! The big Fortnite World Cup next year will use the tournament system to help find qualified players and this winter’s Winter Cup will be a test-run of sorts.
But hey, there’s $1,000,000 in prize money up for grabs. Assuming, of course, you’ve got what it takes. Only the top-most performers will be eligible, and those players must be verified first. But hey, it’s a chance for the faceless masses who play Fortnite obsessively to do something productive with their time.
