The Fortnite Fall Skirmish will start next weekend and Epic Games have announced $10,000,000 in prize money will be awarded across a 6-week series. The conclusion of the series will be at TwitchCon from October 26-28. The Fall Skirmish will aim to have a balance of both Competitive and Entertainment play formats over the 6 weeks. Teams will earn points based on their performance in both formats and challenges such as masterful golf outings and mini-games will be incorporated into the Skirmish.
Epic Games handed out cash prizes to around 500 community members during the Summer Skirmish and are aiming to grow that number. A follow-up blog will be released ext week detailing the format for the first week and team announcements.
Beyond the Fall Skirmish there are chances to win prizes. Near the beginning of October the Showdown Royale allows the entire community to have the opportunity to compete and earn prizes in future competitive events.
As most of you might know we also have a Fortnite Esports team here at Rectify and we will keep you updated on whether they’ll be competing at TwitchCon or not. You can learn more about the squad here.
