Last week, we got an exclusive Australian tournament where players could unlock an exclusive skin. This has previously been done in Japan, too. Now Fortnite has decided to do this on a worldwide basis, but only on PS4.
In a recent blog post, Epic detailed the upcoming tournament which will take place on February 15th & 16th;
On February 15 and 16, eligible PlayStation 4 Fortnite players can drop in and compete in the Fortnite Celebration Cup Solo competitions for an opportunity to earn in-game items and a share of $1,000,000 in cash prizes. Each Solo competition is open to all eligible Fortnite PS4 players, according to the Official Rules. To participate, players also need to make sure their Fortnite account is at level 15 and 2-Factor Authentication is enabled on their Epic account.
On Day 1, February 15, top-performing players on each regional leaderboard will have the opportunity to earn the following in-game items:
Top 50% – “Take Cover” Spray
Top 25% – “Wild Accent” Pickaxe
Top 5% – “Tango” Outfit
On Day 2, February 16, the top-performing players on each regional leaderboard will have the opportunity to win a share of the $1,000,000 prize pool. The breakdown of the prize pool is available in-game in the “Compete” tab and in the Official Rules. When the dust settles, over 4,000 eligible PlayStation 4 players can win cash prizes globally!
Unlike previous exclusive tournaments, there’s also a cash prize pool, too, and the skin will only be available to the top 5% of players rather than 10%+ as in previous tournaments. This will be a skin that only the top players can flex. It is worth noting that the skin from the Japan only tournament did become available in the Item Shop at a later date, so it is possible these exclusive skins will as well.
Also, console exclusive tournaments don’t allow you to plug keyboard and mouse into the console to play, so if you’re a PC player wanting to dust off the PS4 to get this exclusive Fortnite skin, hopefully you still have your old controller.
