UPDATE: SIKE! They've been cancelled again to investigate scoring issues. The next Late Game Cups are now scheduled for next weekend, starting January 29. Keep an eye on @FortniteStatus for updates.
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:
Late Game Solo Cash Cups
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.
Round 1 will last 2 hours, and you can play a maximum of 12 matches in that time. Round 2 will be approximately 2 and a half hours long, with a new match starting every 15 minutes - players can complete up to 10 matches.
4th - 15th: $300
16th - 30th: $150
4th - 5th: $400
6th - 15th: $150

Late Game Trios Cash Cup
Trios Cups will be on Sundays, beginning January 22. They will also have two rounds, and you'll need to place inside the top 20 trios to unlock Round 2.
The format is exactly the same as described above for the Solo events.
4th - 10th: $900
3rd - 10th: $900
