On the heels of the Travis Scott Astronomical event, Epic announce the $2 million Fortnite Champion Series Invitational tournament.
Epic seized the spotlight, yet again, by announcing a new $2 million Fortnite Champion Series (FNCS) Invitational tournament following the massively-successful Astronomical event.
The tournament will begin on May 9 and last for three weeks. Epic will be inviting the top-200 players from each region and platform to compete, once again, for their share of $2 million.

- The top 100 players from Chapter 2; Season 1 FNCS Finals
- The top 100 players from Season X FNCS Finals
