Epic Announces $8M Summer Skirmish Series - Fortnite

12 July 2018

Fortnite developer Epic Games has announced its first official developer-supported esports tournament "Summer Skirmish" - with $8 Million in prize money up for grabs.

As a final housekeeping tip, remember that any replays saved during Fortnite Season 4 will not play via the in-game Replay System once Season 5 begins. Whether you buy a Battle Pass or not, in-game teases suggest there will be a significant update to several named locations on the Battle Royale map, likely including sections themed around the Wild West and prehistoric times.

Season 5 promises to bring in a whole bunch of new features for fans to get stuck into. The previous Battle Pass increased the number of tiers, that said, we won't know if Epic plans to hike it past 100 for Fortnite Season 5.

As we mention, we'll find out the answers to a lot of these questions very soon, but the servers need to come offline before we can learn anything - including the new patch notes.

Fortnite Season 5 looks to be one of the biggest overhauls of Battle Royale to date.

Worlds are about to collide when "Fortnite" Season 5 begins July 12.

Here's everything we know about Fortnite Season 5 so far.

Let's be honest in the run up to the start of Season 5 you'll have undoubebly seen all the various teasers and real world events that have been going on. Which skin designs do you hope to see?

While there are obviously no details about these characters or the theme for season five, fans are certainly buzzing about all the cosmetics and storylines that may be heading for Fortnite: Battle Royale.

The image shows three characters in front of a hot pink background, with each skin much different from each other.
