Console gamers have the chance to win lots of goodies as the PlayStation only Fortnite PS4 Cup begins this Valentine’s weekend.
Beginning this Saturday 15th and running through Sunday 16th, PlayStation Fortnite gamers can test their skills in the massive online game.
An epic Battle Royale is about to take place as PS4 gamers thrash it out on the famous island with the chance to win millions of dollars worth of prizes.
The Epic Games sponsored event will be awarding the best Fortnite players with cosmetics and cash prizes.
Saturday will see events for cosmetic items in the game, while Sunday will be awarding real cash for the best players.
The PS4 tournament comes following last year’s Xbox only event and the larger Fortnite World Cup that saw a teenage gamer walk away with $3 million.
The tournament is available across seven different regions including Europe, North America East and West, Brazil, Oceania, Asia and the Middle East.
Due to the obvious time differences, the tournaments for each region have their own start times:
- Europe – 5pm to 8pm G.M.T
- North America East – 7pm to 10pm E.S.T
- North America West – 5pm to 8pm P.S.T
- Brazil – 6pm to 9pm B.R.T
- Oceania – 4pm to 7pm A.E.D.T
- Asia – 5pm to 8pm J.S.T
- Middle East – 5pm to 8pm A.S.T
While Saturday will be giving away lots of cosmetics, presumably some rare stuff, Sunday will be rewarding up to $1 million in cash prizes.

Saturday’s prizes include “Take Cover” spray for the top 50%, the “Wild Accent” pickaxe for the top 25% and the “Tango” outfit for the top 5% of players.
The prize money being awarded on Sunday is not the same for each region and won’t be as much in some regions as it is in others.
For example, the top-ranking player will win $3,000 in Europe and $500 in Oceania.
Prizes are also awarded to a limited number of players in each region.
Europe will award cash to the top 1,500 while other regions except North America East will award only the top 500 and 250 gamers.
The variation in cash prizes and player numbers is presumably relative to the actual volume of gamers that are expected to take part, as well as currency conversion rates.
However, free money is always a good thing, especially if it comes from gaming.
The Fornite PS4 Cup begins on Saturday and resumes on Sunday with each match lasting three hours.
Good luck everyone.
