Get your Trio together and talk tactics, DreamHack Fortnite is back in town.
Throughout the latter half of 2020 and early 2021, monthly DreamHack Online Open tournaments became a key fixture on the Fortnite competitive calendar. We saw both Solo and Duos formats, with a total of $250,000 in prizing available each time.
Since the series wrapped up in January, players and fans alike have been pining for more. Just yesterday, pros including Calc, Bucke, Stretch and Mero all tweeted to say how much they missed DreamHack.
Well, perhaps this was the nudge they needed. DreamHack has now revealed its latest event, Cash Cup Extra featuring Fortnite.
We are going the ?? EXTRA ?? mile in April!— DreamHack Fortnite (@DreamHackFN) April 1, 2021
Introducing Cash Cup Extra featuring Fortnite presented by DreamHack!
?? NAE & Europe
??? April 7 & 15
More info on 2021 coming soon ?? pic.twitter.com/pQFunc6B4G
Arriving in April, this Trios competition will serve as an exciting new add-on to the regular in-game Cash Cups. The best performers from the next two Monday Trio Cash Cups in Europe and NA East will be invited to take part.
Cash Cup Extra #1 – April 7
- The top 132 teams from April 5’s Cash Cup will be eligible.
Cash Cup Extra #2 – April 15
- The top 132 teams from April 12’s Cash Cup will be eligible.
Cash Cup Extra is a separate tournament in which teams will complete a maximum of 10 games in a 3-hour period, earning points for both placement and eliminations. Right now, the format is pretty elim-heavy, with 9 kills worth almost the same as a Victory Royale.
No jokes! Not today anyway ??— DreamHack Fortnite (@DreamHackFN) April 1, 2021
While the date of the announcement (April 1) left some people questioning whether this was a cruel April Fools joke, DreamHack has repeatedly confirmed that Cash Cup Extra is legit. Additionally, if this wasn’t exactly the sort of event you were hoping for, they also indicated that further information on their plans for 2021 is coming soon.
