​Fortnite World Cup Details Announced With $100 Million Prize Pool

​Fortnite World Cup Details Announced With $100 Million Prize Pool

If you're one of the zillions of gamers addicted to Fortnite, you might be able to put that obsession to good use.

How? By entering Epic Games' Fortnite World Cup, which will see players compete for a not-too-shabby $100 million (£76.5m) prize pool. I know, certainly worth a shot, right?

To begin with, there will be 10 weekly Online Open qualifiers, running from 13 April to 16 June - where there will be $1m (£765,500) up for grabs each week.

Following that stage, the top 100 solo players and the top 50 duos teams from around the world go head-to-head at the finals in New York City between 26-28 July. That one has a $30m (£22.9m) prize pool, with each player guaranteed at least $50,000 (£38,000) while the Fortnite World Cup Solo Champion will walk away with $3m (£2.3m).

And if you're not a Battle Royale player, that's not a problem, as Epic will also host additional events as part of the Fortnite World Cup Finals, including 'fun custom challenges in different modes and formats'.

"Whether you celebrate with us in-person or tune in online to catch all of the action, the Fortnite World Cup will have something for everyone!" the Epic website says.

To be eligible to take part in Fortnite competitions, players must be at least 13 years old (or the equivalent required age in your country) and those aged 13-17 must have permission from a parent or legal guardian.

Epic adds: "Players must be in good standing with respect to any Epic accounts registered by said player, with no undisclosed violations.

"Players must also be free of or served fully any penalties from previously breaking any official Epic rules. The event is void wherever restricted or prohibited by law. Additional eligibility terms and conditions apply."

If you think you're good enough, it's definitely worth getting involved to give some of those Fortnite mega-earners a run for their money - or try to, at least.

After all, there are some people out there earning as much as $322,275 (£243,800) for sitting on their arse playing Fortnite, which seems unfair given that you're doing the EXACT same.

C'mon, we've got faith in you...
