Fortnite PlayStation Cup - Prizes and Format

Fortnite PlayStation Cup is a free event that will feature the same rules and scoring system as most Solo Fortnite competitions. Each player will start off with zero points on the scoreboard, and round one will be an open tournament where each contestant will have three hours to play a maximum of 10 games and earn as many points as they can. Each elimination will add one point to the tally.

The top 100 players with the most points across all Round one matches will advance to their region’s final round. Round two will be made up of six total matches and double the value of eliminations.
