Following speculation about such an event, Epic Games has officially announced the Fortnite Winter Royale Duos Tournament for 2019. The event will take place over the weekend before Christmas, giving players a chance to earn part of a $5 million prize pool daily. This is the latest in a long line of Fortnite tournaments offering skilled players a shot at fame and cash.
As with past tournaments, Fortnite‘s upcoming Winter Royale Duos 2019 tournament will require the game’s best players in regions around the world to compete against each other in teams of two.
Epic Games is planning to hold the event from Friday, December 20, through Sunday, December 22. Each day of the tournament will include a $5 million prize pool.
The company hasn’t yet published the rules and other details about the tournament, though it did say that this event will feature ‘a different scoring format.’ It’s hard to anticipate what Epic has planned; the company is known for tweaking things, sometimes to the ire of players.
This Winter Duos tournament will follow the game’s recent ‘Fishing Frenzy Contest,’ which took place on the weekend of November 22. During that time, players had the chance to win rewards by fishing during game matches. As for this month’s tournament, Epic will be back with details soon.
