The top 100 Solo players and top 50 Duos from the qualifying rounds will travel to NY for the Fortnite World Cup finals, which are set to take place on July 26 to 28. Two hundred players will compete in the World Cup (100 solos and 50 duos teams), and everyone will earn a minimum of $50,000. According to Epic Games, they broke the previous high concurrent player count by about 2.5 million players.

The final set of Overtime challenges have now become available so players will have a chance to get that free Battle Pass. Again, Epic is promising to open up these tournaments to better serve a variety of playstyles, with different modes and formats to be revealed in the coming weeks. The developer will also "provide tournament tools and prizing to select partners" to improve the presence of Fortnite esports in further countries and regions. Whether you celebrate with us in-person or tune in online to catch all of the action, the Fortnite World Cup will have something for everyone!
