XBox: The Official Magazine (US) - - INSIDER FORTNITE -

As well as dom­i­nat­ing the world of on­line shoot­ers, Fort­nite also en­tered the eS­ports scene with gusto. Its Sum­mer Skir­mish se­ries has of­fered com­peti­tors the chance to take home part of an $8 mil­lion prize pool across eight weeks of events which be­gan on 14th July.

Dur­ing the Sum­mer Skir­mish, some of the game’s most prom­i­nent duos com­peted to take home a cash prize of $250,000, with plenty more cash be­ing dished out over the eight weeks.

Ac­cord­ing to Epic, the Sum­mer Skir­mish will see “com­mu­nity creators and Fort­nite play­ers who have demon­strated their com­pet­i­tive prow­ess” fac­ing off for the big money prizes. The event is cur­rently by in­vite only, with all of the slots al­ready filled by pre-se­lected com­peti­tors, but Epic prom­ises to share more in­for­ma­tion on how ev­ery­one can join in such fu­ture eS­ports Fort­nite events.

above Imag­ine that box is full of ac­tual cash… that’s Fort­nite’s sum­mer eS­ports tour­na­ment…
