Epic Games announced the return of Fortnite Winter Royale. Interestingly, the upcoming competition will take place this year, and their prize pool outshines virtually all other tournaments organized by the creators of the game except the World Cup.
This year’s edition of Winter Royale will be designed to fix a slip-up that occurred a year ago. The organizers did not remove the Infinity Blade sword from the game until the start of the competition, which gave its owner a very big advantage. The prize pool of the event, which will take place in the third week of December, will be as much as $15 million, which in this respect places it in the hierarchy just after the world championships. Every day players will be able to get as much as one-third of the abovementioned amount.
Fortnite Winter Royale 2019 will include three separate tournaments played from December 20-22. Each of them will have a separate score and prize pool. Participants from all regions and platforms will be able to participate in the event. It is important that each competition will have a platform assigned. Players playing on consoles will not be forced to fight those playing on computers and vice versa. The event will also be available to every player. How to play in Fortnite Winter Royale and participate in other esports events will be found here.
Epic Games has not yet revealed the exact format, rules, or invited players. The organizers will provide more details in the near future.
