Compete in the Fortnite PlayStation Cup for a piece of the $110,000 global prize pool

Reading Time: 3 minutes

Board the Battle Bus on October 2 for a shot at the Fortnite PlayStation Cup and a share of the global prize pool. This solo, two-round tournament features six regional prize pools* exclusively on PS4 and PS5 consoles. Land at your favorite map location, then outlast or eliminate other participants for points. 

Head over to the Fortnite in-game Compete Tab to get the drop on the competition. There’s a grand prize waiting for first place on the Victory Royale screen, while many of the top ranked players will still glide away with their own cash prize.

Regions

The round 1 tournament times for each region are listed below and can be found in-game under the Compete Tab:

  • North America East:  1:00 PM – 4:00 PM ET
  • North America West:  2:00 PM – 5:00 PM PT

Prizes and Format

This free event features the same rules and scoring system as most Solo Fortnite competitions. Every player regardless of their rank, stats, or cosmetics starts with zero points. Round 1 is an open competition where you’ll have three hours to play a maximum of 10 games and earn as many points as you can. Each elimination is worth one point, while higher placements offer more. 

The top 100 players with the most points across all round one matches will advance to their region’s final round. Round 2 consists of six total matches and doubles the value of eliminations. Outscore the competition to take home one of the following prizes:
