Get ready to see some of your favorite Fortnite stars in a whole new light! Who will win it all? And who will fold under pressure?
Last week, Epic Games announced the return of in-person Fortnite competition with the FNCS Invitational in Raleigh. Though we’ll have to wait till November for that one, third-party events are already back in full swing, with DreamHack leading the charge.
In just over two weeks’ time, pros from all over the world will fly to Sweden for the DreamHack Summer Smash gaming festival. With both a $100k Battle Royale tournament and a separate $100k Zero Build tournament taking place, things are sure to get spicy!
Before then though, there’s even more LAN action to enjoy. The DreamHack Dallas Amateur Open featuring Fortnite kicks off tomorrow, Friday June 3.
This is a one-day Solo event, with Open Qualifiers feeding into a set Finals lobby. Despite the smaller $25,000 prize pool, a bunch of big names are still expected to attend.
How to watch
Can’t make it to Dallas but don’t want to miss out? No worries, there are plenty of ways to tune in… There’s going to be some banger content!
DreamHack is putting on their own broadcast for Finals, which is a total of six matches. Coverage starts at 6PM CDT at twitch.tv/dreamhackfn.
Though there’s no official broadcast for Opens, a handful of players will be streaming their perspectives. Plus, NRG creator AussieAntics is doing a viewing party live from Dallas, casting the games on his own Twitch channel, interviewing pros and more.
If you’re after extra behind the scenes footage, @YourFellowArab is in town too. He’ll be streaming everything here, and is even bringing a cameraman to catch anything that happens while he’s offline.
Whether you’re there in person or watching from home, both these DreamHack tournaments are going to be awesome. Hopefully we see more and more Fortnite LANs popping up in the coming months.
