The Fortnite: Battle Royale esports train has officially left the station.
More and more Fortnite esports tournaments have started to crop up—and OpTic Gaming’s Davis “Hitch” Edwards has joined in on the fun, with some big Fortnite names set to take part in his competition.
Hitch revealed that he’s hosting a $5,000 two-versus-two co-ed Fortnite tournament called Summertime Showdown on Thursday, June 7.
The bracket is loaded with many well-known Fortnite players, such as TSM’s Ali “Myth” Kabbani, as well as streamers, like Jack “CouRage” Dunlop. Professional gamers from other esports will also be competing in this tournament—including several prominent Call of Duty players, such as Damon “Karma” Barlow, Adam “KiLLa” Sloss, and Jordan “ProoFy” Cannon.
In order to offer the $5,000 prize pool for this tournament, Hitch is teaming up with Turtle Beach and Ultra Arena. The distribution for the prize pool hasn’t been announced yet, however.
The rules for the tournament also haven’t been revealed—but it will likely follow a similar ruleset seen in UMG’s Friday Fortnite tournaments. In Friday Fortnite tournaments, opposing duos load up into a Squads match together, and they play up to three games to see which pair can get the most kills.
These Fortnite tournaments have generally produced a ton of great plays, and this one should be no different. Hitch’s Summertime Showdown No. 3 is set to begin at 5pm CT on Thursday.
