First ‘Fortnite’ In-Game Tournament Set To Begin This Week

The change to controller sensitivity while building has prompted Epic Games to make changes to the slider used to dictate these settings, replacing the old 10 value slider with a new version that gives players more precise control over their sensitivity.

The first tournament will be played in a solo playlist.

"Fortnite" is now in the middle of the Fall Skirmish, a competition among 500 top players, with a $1.1 million prize pool. During the tournament, the game's matchmaking will try to get you into games with players of a similar point count, meaning the better you do the more experienced opponents you'll be matched against.

Tomorrow's Fortnite update, v6.10, is bringing in-game tournaments, Epic announced in a recent blog post. "Players can earn points by either achieving high placements or eliminating multiple opponents".

This tournament, as well as every other, will be open to everyone and players will be able to access them through the special tab in the game menu.

Via Epic Games, here are the schedules or the in-game tournaments. 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.

"[Competitors] have shown that controller players can be successful while competing against some of the best PC players in the world". Additionally, there will be five different tournaments to choose from, with the first one starting on October 16. The rest of the $6 million prize pool is awarded to the winners of specific events each week. The second competition will be an invitational event for 50 Fortnite content creators and 50 random TwitchCon attendees with another $350,000 in prize money.
