If you’re having trouble tracking down a PS5 in the wild like many people are, Fortnite and Sony have teamed up to give you a chance to actually win one.

Introducing a PS4 and PS5-exclusive tournament, the Fortnite Generations Cup will give seven players across the world the chance to win a PS5, but it’s much more likely you’ll be able to take home a skin instead.

This is a strictly solo tournament, which is becoming a bit rare in Fortnite, so you’ll need to dust off your controller and prove your worth all by yourself.

It shouldn’t be too scary, but just know you won’t have anybody else to rely on if you’re in a pickle.


Fortnite Generations Cup Time

This tournament will take place on December 18 and for the time it begins in your region, it’s best to check the in-game compete time.

According to the Epic Games blog post, this will be the start time for each region, with the caveat being it’s all in EST, so you’ll have to convert it.

  • OCE: 2:00 AM – 5:00 AM
  • ASIA: 4:00 AM – 7:00 AM
  • ME: 9:00 AM – 12:00 PM
  • EU: 12:00 PM – 3:00 PM
  • BR: 4:00 PM – 7:00 PM
  • NAE: 6:00 PM – 9:00 PM
  • NAW: 9:00 PM – 12:00 AM

The usual three hour sessions return, and you’ll also need to make sure you have 2FA and have an account level of 30 or up to play.


What’s The Format?

The format isn’t really all that different from other tournaments, with placements getting a lot of value while eliminations aren’t worth as much.

Some tourneys give out five points an elimination, but this one will just give you one point.

Here’s how it all works out:

  • Victory Royale: 10 Points
  • 2nd – 5th: 7 Points
  • 6th – 15th: 5 Points
  • 16th – 25th: 3 Points
  • 25th – 50th: 1 Point
  • Each Elimination: 1 Point

Obviously, getting wins will give you the most points, but you also will need to sprinkle in some eliminations if you really want to perform well.

Now, let’s take a look at how the rewards are given out.
