The esports page on the Fortnite website was updated to release details of the new in-game tournaments mode, which looks like it will be the best practice for the World Cup. This tournament, as well as every other, will be open to everyone and players will be able to access them through the special tab in the game menu. According to Epic, they've been "observing the performance" of those using controllers and found they're just as competitive as keyboard and mouse players. "Competitors such as NickMercs, Ayden, KamoLRF, and AmarCoD have shown that controller players can be successful while competing against some of the best PC players in the world". A specific release date was not shared, but its appearance in the News feed says it's "coming soon".

"Fortnite's" Fall Skirmish event series will culminate at TwitchCon 2018. Epic invited 500 "Fortnite" players to compete in the event, dividing them into five different teams for the six-week skirmish season. The first will be an open duos competition with a prize pool of more than $1.1 million split between the top 50 teams; the winning team will receive $400,000.

Initially, Epic stated that Fortnite World Cup qualifiers would begin in Fall 2018, but that has yet to happen, and the Fortnite website has now been updated to announce a delay to the qualifiers.
