Fortnite: Battle Royale will have its first World Cup soon. It’ll be the first time Epic Games has organized a global tournament and all players qualified for it just by playing from home. Those who performed the best have secured a spot in the Fortnite World Cup Finals in New York.

Before the finals, there were 10 weeks of online qualifiers, five for Solo and five for Duos matches. The best players in each region earned a part of the $1 million weekly prize pool for 10 weeks. Players who failed to qualify for these events’ semifinals and finals still watched the best matches broadcasted live on Epic’s Twitch channel.
