The competition will be 100% online and will face the players in Duos tournaments: we will tell you everything you need to know about it.
The new year begins with Fortnite competitions. Players will be able to compete in the Dreamhack Open Online Tournament, which, as its name suggests, will take place online, without having to go to any venue to participate. Along the lines of this type of format, players will fight to qualify for the semifinals and the final. It is a duos tournament with two participation requirements: be at least 13 years old and have correctly registered on the official website.
According to the information, “each month there will be a prize of $ 250,000 at stake.” Both European and North American players will have the opportunity to show their skills. Spectators, meanwhile, will be able to follow the day-to-day running of the tournament through the Twitch broadcasts, which will feature professional commentators and analysis. And when will it take place? This same month of January.
