Epic Announces $8M Summer Skirmish Series - Fortnite

13 July 2018

While we wait for the events leading to the 2019 Fortnite World Cup, expected to begin this fall, Epic Games announced today it will host a summer series called Summer Skirmish.

"Fortnite" has become a cultural phenomenon and mega-hit for video game developer Epic Games, boasting 125 million players around the world.

Season 5 promises to bring in a whole bunch of new features for fans to get stuck into. PUBG was the one to show the way for the other games in the battle royale arena, but Fortnite was quick to catch up and leave PUBG behind, tasting dust.

Epic Games usually complete the new patch update between one and a half to three hours, so fans should expect gameplay to resume by 11am BST (7am ET) this morning.

If the new Battle Pass is anything to go by, players will have ten weeks and 100 new tiers to unlock, packed to the rafters with new skins, gliders, pickaxes, emotes, loading screens, back bling and much more besides!

Epic Games has announced this weekend marks the start of an 8-week series of Fortnite competitions.
