Fortnite Winter Royale Is Here
Fortnite Winter Battle Royale – $1,000,000 Prize Money
Epic Games has announced a $1,000,000 Winter Royale Open Online Competition. First question, how do I enter? It appears as if it’s invite only and ONLY in North America and Europe. What does that mean, Epic Games will hold online events in the Fortnite Events tab and will track top performers for each event, top performers will then get an invite to participate. Epic Games states:
“The top performers in each region for NA and EU will be verified, and those players found eligible will be invited to participate in the Winter Royale Finals for their region. While this tournament will be restricted to NA and EU, we’re planning on holding other region-specific tournaments in additional regions in the near future.”

$1,000,000 WINTER ROYALE OPEN FORTNITE COMPETITION
The Online Tournament system will be used next year to determine participants in the Fortnite World Cup. Starting later this month, we will hold a test event that will emulate the World Cup Qualification process. This will help us gather valuable learnings to better prepare for the process next year.
The Solo test events will consist of two parts, the Winter Royale Qualifiers and the Winter Royale Finals, which will have a total of $1,000,000 in prizes up for grabs.
There will be several chances for anyone to try and get a high score during the Winter Royale Qualifier days. The highest score you achieve during any event session will be the one that counts, so be sure to give it your all! As part of our ongoing competitive tests to prepare for the Fortnite World Cup, Winter Royale will use the same game settings as the currently available Pop-Up Cup.
The top performers in each region for NA and EU will be verified, and those players found eligible will be invited to participate in the Winter Royale Finals for their region. While this tournament will be restricted to NA and EU, we’re planning on holding other region-specific tournaments in additional regions in the near future.
