Fortnite World Cup Details & $100000000 Competitive Prize Pool for 2019

Eligible Fortnite players will have the chance to get payouts from a weekly $1,000,000 prize pool and to qualify for the World Cup Finals.

That idea has now become a reality, with the first Fortnite World Cup set to begin on April 13.

After the qualifiers are over, the top 100 players and the top 50 teams will travel to New York City for the Fortnite World Cup finals from July 26 to July 28. Epic Games first pledged to distribute $100 million in tournament winnings last May, alongside releasing details on the game's first ever official esports push.

The report states that the fire could have been started by a lit cigarette that was disposed of carelessly onto a dry grass field. Hundreds of vehicles, including two-wheelers and cars, were seen parked in files in the open ground, surrounded by fire.

The lead-up to the World Cup will consist of 10 weekly Online Open qualifiers that will run from April 13 to June 16. According to Epic Games, they broke the previous high concurrent player count by about 2.5 million players. Here, a $30 million prize pool is up for grabs. Fortnite has been quite rewarding these days, and many people think it's because of the growing of the Battle Royale genre. Finalists will each nab at least $50,000 for competing, while the champ will walk away with $3 million. Whether you celebrate with us in-person or tune in online to catch all of the action, the Fortnite World Cup will have something for everyone!

Epic is dedicating $100 million to Fortnite's prize pool in 2019. These tournaments will feature different modes and formats to allow other players to compete and potentially win the massive cash prize.
