Two new Late Game Quick Cups are taking place this Saturday but you’ll have to be up early(ish) to play!

First introduced back in July to celebrate World Cup Champion Kyle “Bugha” Giersdorf’s Icon Series skin, Fortnite’s Late Game LTM was an instant hit with competitive fans. The mode sees teams drop onto the Island with a full loadout and the storm already closing in.

This means no time wasted looting up and farming materials, action-hungry players can jump straight into their first fight. With the standard Battle Royale playlists starting to feel a bit stale for many, it’s unsurprising that Late Game was so popular.

Epic heard the community’s cries and added Late Game back earlier this week, with both Solos and a Trio Fills option. Now they have announced two new Late Game Quick Cups for those who want to get that true tournament endgame experience.

On Saturday October 9, there will be both a Solo Late Game Cup and a Trios Late Game Cup in each region, with a short break in between. Players can complete a maximum of 12 matches within the 2-hour window, earning points for placement and eliminations.

Be sure to check your local start time on our Events page, the Solos Cup starts a lot earlier than you may be used to.

Solo Scoring System

  • Victory Royale +8

  • Reach Top 2 +5

  • Reach Top 3 +4

  • Reach Top 4 +3

  • Reach Top 5-10 +2 each

  • Reach Top 11-40 +1 each

  • Each Elimination +3

Trio Scoring System

  • Victory Royale +14

  • Reach Top 2 +8

  • Reach Top 3 +6

  • Reach Top 4-17 +3 each

  • Each Elimination +3

There is no prize pool for either event although it’s still a nice change of pace and a good warmup ahead of the Cash Cups on Sunday and Monday. Although the official rules are yet to be published, you should be able to play on multiple regions and there is unlikely to be any minimum Hype required to enter.

Sure, there may not be any money on the line, but there’s always bragging rights. Keep up with your progress live on our Late Game Quick Cup leaderboards.
