The competition will take place at the Raleigh Convention Center in North Carolina on November 12 and 13, showcasing selected players from all over the globe compete for an enormous cash prize of $1,000,000 in a single lobby. Epic Games will be sharing more information on the event as its date draws near.

The tournament will follow health standards to ensure players’ well-being and safety, according to Epic. The competition could be postponed or rescheduled “if public health trends change, or regional laws or recommendations shift at any point this year,” the announcement reads.

Moreover, Epic also recommended anticipating players to keep their travel documentation, like passports and vaccination reports, ready to be well ahead of any issues and make sure they participate in the FNCS Invitational without any complications.

Fortnite coming back to offline events is an excellent sign for the game’s esports scene. The game has only seen online tournaments after the inaugural Fortnite World Cup, which took place in 2019. With this event concluding, the community is expecting some more news on FNCS 2022 from the developers and potentially some teasers about the next Fortnite World Cup as global restrictions lift.
