Howsabout a slice of $100,000,000? That’s the total prize pool for Fortnite‘s 2019 esports lineup, with a significant portion of that going to the World Cup, which Epic Games has revealed in full this morning.
“The road to the Fortnite World Cup begins with ten weekly Online Open qualifiers running from April 13 to June 16. Each week $1,000,000 will be on the line for eligible Fortnite players, with payouts distributed broadly. The top 100 Solo players and the top 50 Duos teams from around the world will join us for the Fortnite World Cup Finals in New York City July 26-28 with a $30,000,000 prize pool up for grabs! Each one of those players will be guaranteed at least $50,000 and the Fortnite World Cup Solo Champion will walk away with $3,000,000.”
There’s even a nod to people who don’t love battle royale but still dig esports – a promise of “fun custom challenges in different modes and formats.”
