If you’re a Fortnite player on PlayStation, then you’re well aware of some of the advantages you have.

For starters, there are the PS Plus bundles that give out free cosmetics, provided you’re subscribed to Sony’s online service, something that isn’t required to play Fortnite on the platform.

As if that wasn’t already enough of an incentive, Sony and Epic have teamed up for a PlayStation Cup in Fortnite that will give players the chance to win some big money, provided they are able to prove they can hang with the best of the best.

There will be two cups in total, so if you don’t perform well in the first one, you’ll have another shot to show off your skills. Here’s what you need to know.

PlayStation Only

These cups will be exclusive to Fortnite players on PS4 and PS5, so that means the other platforms are excluded from this.

This will be a Solo competition, so it’s a change of pace from many of the previous tournaments that are usually in a Duo or Trio format. The cups are separated into two different rounds, with the first one being available to all players. To get into the second round, you’ll have to be in the top 100 players.

Round 1 gives you three hours to play in up to 10 matches while Round 2 has six total matches.

The first cup is October 2, so you don’t have a ton of time to get ready, but you won’t have to reach a certain Arena rank or anything, so don’t worry about that. Make sure you check out the in-game Compete tab for the exact starting time in your region.

A date for the next tournament hasn’t been set, but Epic does say it’ll be in November. Now, the only thing that you might be left wondering about is what rewards are up for grabs.

It’s not a free cosmetic or anything, but it’s the next best thing ⁠– money.
