Epic announces Fortnite $1 million Celebration Cup on PS4

Epic has announced a PS4-exclusive tournament with $1 million in prizes and a free skin.

While the rest of us wait for Fortnite Season 2 to come out, PS4 players will be treated to an exclusive tournament on February 15 and 16 for all regions.

The Celebration Cup, as it’s called, was announced by Epic on February 3. The event will have a $1 million prize pool and give players a chance to obtain several cosmetics for free.

Those who place in the top 50% for their region will take home the ‘Take Cover’ spray. Finishing in the top 25% will give you the ‘Wild Accent’ pickaxe and the top 5% will get the ‘Tango’ outfit, pictured below.

A $1 million prize pool might seem like a lot, but it’s spread across all regions. First place in NA East will receive $2,500 and number-one in the EU will earn $3,000.

The scoring system is similar to tournaments we’ve seen in the past:

  • Victory Royale: 10 Points
  • 2nd – 5th: 7 Points
  • 6th – 15th: 5 Points
  • 16th – 25th: 3 Points

Hopefully, Epic adds more platform-exclusive tournaments to fill the time between now and Season 2. If you think you have what it takes, you could end up grabbing a free skin and some cash.
