DreamHack Winter 2019 has announced that Fortnite will be featuring its biggest community tournament EVER as it is set to split $500,000 over two events (DreamHack Winter and DreamHack Anaheim 2020). With DreamHack Winter taking place at the end of November, it is safe to say we will be playing in Fortnite Season 11; it is unknown if this will be on the rumoured new map. Despite the Fortnite Champion Series recently switching to squads, this tournament will remain a solos tournament.

DreamHack Winter is already set to headline with the CSGO DreamHack Open and the Super Smash Bros Ultimate European Circuit; including a host of BYOC tournaments.


DreamHack is a three-day gaming lifestyle festival. These festivals are all about the massive BYOC (Bring Your Own Computer or Console) party, paired with a plethora of competitive tournaments and international esports competitions happening.
