Epic Announces PS4 Fortnite Tournaments

Whatever your opinion of Fortnite, it has been a huge success for Rockstar Games and seems to be growing better.

Although I am not a fan, I admire the game’s influence on the sector, giving many people—bloggers included—jobs and helping it create a strong brand identity.

Contrary to common assumption, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, another wildly popular game that is a bit more realistic than Fortnite, is the one who invented the Battle Royale genre.

There are additional options if you don’t like PUBG or Fortnite:

In contrast to Fortnite, Apex Legends is situated in the world of the Titanfall game series. Since its release earlier in the year, the game—which is thought to be Electronic Arts’ version of Fortnite—has quickly established itself as the player-favorite among those searching for a Fortnite substitute.

The newest Call of Duty game, Black Ops 4, does away with the typical narrative mode in favor of a complete multiplayer experience that includes its take on Battle Royale.

Epic Games announced Fortnite competitions for PS4 and other platforms after this weekend’s Xbox Tournament, so PlayStation fans aren’t left out.

Epic Games has inevitably announced a PS4-exclusive Fortnite Tournament in response to the recent Xbox-only tournament’s outstanding performance.

Additionally, the creator has said each platform will get its original content, including mobile of the wildly popular Battle Royale.

Players that participated in the last Xbox exclusive event, which took place this past weekend (20/21 July), shared a $1 million prize fund.

The big online competition had 3,500 participants, and the regional winners in the game received $5,000 apiece for taking first place in their particular area.

Epic Games has already announced that it will host a comparable competition for PlayStation 4 players at a future time.

According to a spokesman at Epic Games,

“For the people asking in the post, we also have plans to hold a PS4 cup – keep tuned for information,” the message said.

The closest thing to the official announcement we can anticipate until one is made on the Epic Games website is a bit hazy.

Given Fortnite’s enormous popularity, console-only competitions were only inevitable given that many players stick to a single platform, even if others also play the game on mobile devices.

Cross-platform contests may be feasible now that Sony has officially enabled cross-play for PS4 gamers, making PS4/Xbox One tournaments conceivable.

However, considering PC players’ speed advantages thanks to a mouse or keyboard configuration, console and PC competitions are unlikely to occur.

Similar to the previous point, I wouldn’t anticipate mobile devices to be used in cross-platform play as they rely on a separate control scheme that would eventually fall short of offering any advantages over a typical trackball mouse or a desktop setup.

The Tournament’sTournament’s dates are unknown since these online competitions need time for planning, organization, and advertising—not that Fortnite needs much promotion.

Additionally, I wouldn’t anticipate it to happen any time soon since the Fortnite Royal Rumble World Cup finals are just around the way.

The World Cup finals will take place between July 26 and July 28, 2019, at a live event in New York City featuring a variety of facilities and attractions for sports fans to enjoy.

Despite not making it to the finals, Ninja and One Shot Gurl are among the most well-known Fortnite players in the world at this big TournamentTournament, which will award competitors a total prize pool of £30 million.

In addition to the World Championships schedule, Season 10 is drawing nearer and is anticipated to debut in early August.

In light of this, I would anticipate the PlayStation 4 tournament to be set between Season 10 and Season 11, much as the Xbox tournament and the World Cup were scheduled for Seasons 9 and 10.

An Epic Season lasts around ten weeks,so  the PS4 TournamentTournament would likely begin on or around October 10. This seems like a suitable time to start the TournamentTournament and allows Epic Games plenty of time to plan it.

Since its release in 2017, Fortnite has established itself as a major player in the gaming industry. It is especially well-liked by the younger generation of players who want fast-paced, team-based action with their friends.

Fortnite is presently the highest-grossing digital game in the world, earning Epic Games a staggering $2.4 billion in 2018, according to GamesIndustry.biz.

Despite Fortnite’s enormous popularity, the game is not without its detractors. Many parents have complained about how addicting the game can be for their kids.

Since then, the World Health Assembly has formally recognized gaming addiction as a mental health condition comparable to drug and alcohol misuse.

Even Hideo Kojima, a legendary figure in the video game business, has expressed his distaste for the title, saying in a recent interview when asked what he thinks about Fortnite:

The simplest thing for me to do when I initially began Kojima Productions would have been to create a game where everyone is on an island and shoots each other.
