PlayStation has announced the Fortnite Celebration Cup which will kick off this month and offer in-game rewards for participants as well as the opportunity to earn a share of the cool $1 million prize pool.
This two-day event will kick off on February 15, and players taking part all have an opportunity to grab exclusive items.
Players in the top 50% will get the “Take Cover” spray, while the top 25% will get the “Wild Accent” pickaxe. Rounding up the items on offer is the “Tango” skin which is available for the top 5% of players.

Of course, the main attraction will be Day 2 of the competition, taking place on February 16 which will allow the best players from each regional leaderboard to compete for a share of the $1 million prize pool.
Even better, the entry requirements aren’t too taxing. Players need to have an account that’s hit level 15 on Fortnite and have 2-Factor Authentication enabled. If you haven’t signed up for the security measures, you can do so here.
Ready to compete? Head over to the Compete tab within Fortnite (on PlayStation 4) to find out more information or check PlayStation’s competition centre here.
The Celebration Cup will take place just days before Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 2 begins, kicking off on February 20, and we can’t wait to see what’s coming next.
Chapter 2 overhauled the map and added new gameplay elements, but it sounds like Chapter 2 Season 2 will have an entirely new physics system. Say what you will about Epic, but they certainly love switching things up. You can find all the info on the new season here.
