Earlier today, Epic Games released the full details for the upcoming Fortnite World Cup, which will feature a ridiculous $100,000,000 prize pool this year.


As we previously reported, the road to the World Cup begins on April 13 with 10 weekly qualifiers. Each week, Epic Games will be rewarding $1,000,000 in total prizes. From there, the top 100 solo players and top 50 duos teams will compete in the World Cup Finals in New York City from July 26-28 for a $30,000,000 prize pool.

Players can participate on their own schedules via the Arena Mode, which is the gateway to unlock access to the Fortnite World Cup Online Open Tournaments. The 3-hour Semi-Finals for these tournaments will take place on Saturdays throughout the season, with the top 3,000 players in each server region advancing to the Online Open Finals each Sunday. The Open Finals will again be a 3-hour window with the top players competing for the $1 million prize pool.

In the latest announcement, Epic Games provided details on the server regions for both the solo and duos team qualifiers in each region, including Europe, NA East, NA West, Asia, Brazil and Oceania.
