Each Online Open qualifier will pay out a $1 million prize pool of its own to top contenders, and more weekly tournaments with $1 million in prizes will continue throughout the year.
After 10 online qualifiers, the finals will be held in NY from 26-28 July, where the top 100 solo players and the top 50 two-person teams from around the world will compete for a prize pool of more than $30m (£23m).
Each player will be guaranteed at least $50 thousand, while the "Fortnite" World CupSolo Champion will receive a whopping $3 million. Details about the tournament, including the date and location of the World Cup grand finals were revealed in its announcement.
That idea has now become a reality, with the first Fortnite World Cup set to begin on April 13. While people may look down their nose at the game or straight-up ridicule its competitive efforts, this is the biggest prize pool an esports event has ever had and displays Epic Games' dedication towards the industry. The move possibly comes in response to the successful launch of Apex Legends-although Epic insists its battle royale game is just fine, citing some all-time record concurrent player counts Fortnite recently enjoyed.
The approach to the World Cup will consist of ten weekly open qualifiers online that will be held from April 13th to June 16th. These tournaments will feature different modes and formats to allow other players to compete and potentially win the massive cash prize.
