Grab a friend and get ready for another month of exciting DreamHack Fortnite action!

On Wednesday, Epic Games published an update on what to expect from competitive Fortnite in Season 5. Along with the FNCS, it seems that most of the weekly Cash Cups will focus on Trios gameplay, leaving fans of other modes a little disappointed.

But worry not, the DreamHack Online Open is back for January, and will once again give Duos from Europe and North America the chance to compete for a share of $250,000.

The format is slightly different this time around, with EU players getting an extra opportunity to qualify. Check out the schedule below:

Europe (CET)

Heat 1 – Sunday January 24, 2PM-5PM

Heat 2 – Sunday January 24, 5PM-8PM

Heat 3 – Saturday January 30, 2PM-5PM

Semi-Finals – Saturday January 30, 6PM-9PM

Grand Finals – Sunday January 31, 2PM-8PM

NA East (ET)

Heat 1 – Friday January 22, 6PM-9PM

Heat 2 – Saturday January 23, 2PM-5PM

Semi-Finals – Saturday January 23, 6PM-9PM

Grand Finals – Sunday January 24, 2PM-8PM

NA West (PT)

Heat 1 – Friday January 22, 6PM-9PM

Heat 2 – Saturday January 30, 2PM-5PM

Semi-Finals – Saturday January 30, 6PM-9PM

Grand Finals – Sunday January 31, 2PM-8PM

Live leaderboards for each round will be available via our events page.

As usual, the top 250 teams from each heat will make the Semi-Finals, with just 50 Duos moving on to the Grand Finals. Remember, you can play in as many heats as you like, so don’t give up if you get off to a bad start.

The tournament is cross-platform and free to enter, you can even try your luck on all three regions. Just ensure that both you and your partner have Two-Factor Authentication enabled and are at least 13 years of age.

Full rules and regulations can be found on the DreamHack Fortnite website. Sign ups will be going live very soon, so keep an eye on the @DreamHackFN Twitter account.
