"Each tournament has a series of scheduled dates and times during which the competition will be run", Epic said.

The first tournament will be played in a solo playlist. All players will begin with the same score and then compete to earn as many points as possible by eliminating opponents or achievement high placements. Epic says it was carefully watching pro players during the Summer Skirmish, PAX West, and Fall Skirmish events, and have concluded that controller players can be a match for mouse-and-keyboard players.

Epic Games has confirmed that in-game tournaments are coming to Fortnite with the release of the 6.1 update. There will be a target score for players to work toward, and anyone who successfully reaches that mark will earn a shiny pin. If you achieve the score goal, you'll get a pin to celebrate.

Fortnite tournaments will support crossplay - in fact, you need to opt in to crossplay to participate. All players participating in a tournament will be treated as equals regardless of their control input-mouse and keyboard, controller, or touch.

Description: Join your friends every Friday and kick off your weekend with some exciting Squad action.

The first "Fortnite" in-game tournament, which is open to players of all ages and skill levels, is set to begin October 16.

'Description: Become legends of the Tomato Temple Cup. Additionally, there will be five different tournaments to choose from, with the first one starting on October 16.

"Over the next few months, we'll be continuing to develop the tournaments feature to allow for events to occur across multiple rounds, requiring players to have earned a pin to qualify for each subsequent round", Epic said.
