See yourself as a Late Game Arena pro? Time to prove it and net some earnings in these new Cash Cups.

Fortnite’s popular Late Game Arena mode is back for the first time since Chapter 2! It was added in Tuesday’s v21.50 patch and has received some exciting improvements.

Late Game features a fresh loot pool with a selection of classic weapons, including the Pump Shotgun. Gameplay for the first Storm Phase has been adjusted to stop so many people dying early, and help keep things intense.

To celebrate the return, Epic is running a selection of Late Game Arena tournaments over the coming weeks. These include prized Cash Cups and fun Quick Cups, for both Solos and Trios.

The Quick Cups are just one round, with 2 hours to play 12 matches.
