Fortnite’s brightest stars are touching down in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, for the biggest in-person event since the 2019 World Cup. With $2,000,000 on the line, this is going to be crazy!

The tournament is part of the larger Gamers8 Esports and Music Festival – A futuristic experience which seeks to “bring the virtual world of gaming out into the physical realm”.

Here’s what to expect:

Top Fortnite pros, content creators, and a few community qualifiers will compete across both Zero Build and standard Battle Royale. Each mode consists of 12 set lobby matches, similar to FNCS, and boasts its own $1million prize pool.

Schedule

Everything is spread out nicely so it should be easy to follow. Zero Build first, then Battle Royale.

How to watch

It appears that the event will have an official broadcast on the Gamers8 Twitch channel. Popular Fortnite casters including ShyoWager have also made the trip to Saudi Arabia.

Additionally, you may be able to catch your favourite player streaming their own perspective. For some behind the scenes footage, Arab is already there and is regularly live on Twitch.
