Epic Games announced that the 6.10 update for Fortnite will give players the opportunity to participate in tournaments.
At the moment, five tournaments have been announced, which run from October 16 (update release date) to November 1. They are available to all players on all platforms.
The goal of participating in a tournament is to score as many points as possible and get a virtual badge that means success at a certain stage of the tournament. The best players will be able to compete for prizes, but it is not specified what kind of awards gamers will expect.
Epic plans to host in-game competitions next year, but the developers have no concrete plans yet. It is possible that tournaments will also be available only for users of certain systems.
