Fortnite is easily the most happening game around, and it doesn’t seem to be losing any steam. While yet to be declared an official eSport, Fortnite tournaments are springing up everywhere. Many of these tournaments offer cash prizes in the triple digits. The tournament hosted by KEEMSTAR last Friday offered a $5,000 prize for 1st place.
The online tournament community has been begging for a new trend in the gaming world. Fortnite, by Epic Games, delivers. The battle royale style game has created a huge demand for competitive play that online tournament sites like UMG, Checkmate Gaming, and Ultra Arena have been happy to fill.
Even though Fortnite isn’t an official eSport yet, well-known teams have already begun recruiting. Team Solo Mid has even bought an entire house dedicated to the game. So, official eSport or not, Fortnite tournaments are booming. Epic is even planning a celebrity pro-am for this year’s E3.
Do you think you have what it takes to play Fortnite in the competitive arena? Then what are you waiting for? Many sites offer low entry fees with some tournaments being free to enter! Just remember, you’ll be playing against the best!
