Fortnite adds Quadcrasher and in-game tourneys, Disco Domination rolls over

The first "Fortnite" in-game tournament, which is open to players of all ages and skill levels, is set to begin October 16.

But how exactly does it work?

Each tournament session begins with a completely clean slate, so all players will begin with the same score and compete over a number of hours to earn points in a variety of ways.

Tournaments are timed events, available only at certain dates and times. Teams or individual players with high scores will be placed in matches with other high ranked players for a greater challenge, while those who struggle will be placed alongside beginners.

Matchmaking during a tournament session will pair players with similar point standings, so if you're playing well within the session you'll find yourself matched with stronger opponents. In the future, though, Epic says shiny pins will be used to redeem prizes or to advance to the next round in a tournament.

"Fortnite" is now in the middle of the Fall Skirmish, a competition among 500 top players, with a $1.1 million prize pool.

Fortnite tournaments will support crossplay - in fact, you need to opt in to crossplay to participate.

Tournaments will pit players from all platforms against each other, from PC to console to mobile devices, regardless of whether they use a regular controller, mouse & keyboard, or touchscreen controls.

The events will be scheduled in North America, Europe, Brazil, Asia and Oceania - you'll be able to check the exact time for your region when you look at the event.
