Feel at home in a stacked endgame? If so, you're in luck - Late Game Cash Cups are back for Fortnite Chapter 4, and with a hefty prize pool!

For the past six months or so, Epic has been working to get the fan-favorite Late Game Arena mode tournament-ready. Due to bugs and scoring issues, the planned events kept getting postponed and cancelled.

However, following a successful performance evaluation event, it seems everything is finally working as intended. Solo and Trio Late Game Cash Cups are set to kick off very soon.

Here's what you need to know:

The Solo Cups will run every Monday starting January 23. They occur across 2 rounds, with only the top 60 players in each region progressing to Round 2.
