Some of the world’s greatest athletes, entertainers, and top Fortnite players will be heading to E3 this year to take part in a huge, 100-player tournament, Epic Games has announced.

Fifty pro players will be teamed up with 50 celebrities from across the globe to clash in the premier Fortnite Celebrity Pro-Am in Los Angeles during E3. These teams will then face off against each other in Fortnite's popular Battle Royale mode for a chance at claiming the ultimate bragging rights.

Not much is known about who the 100 players will be. Epic Games said it's still slowly building the teams at this time, with more information expected to come out closer to the event this Summer.

Epic also teased details for the first season of Fortnite Battle Royale competitive play. These details will be coming out in the next few weeks, the game developer said.
