Epic Games have taken to Twitter to share the exact start date for Season 6 of Fortnite, and it's not exactly when we were expecting!
In a blog post about its upcoming Skirmish event, the middleware and game maker said this was the biggest month on record for the survival-slash-battle royal title.
In other Fortnite news, Epic Games have announced that August was the best ever month for Fortnite.
As the hype builds up to the start of Season 6 of Fortnite, some fans have been asking about the teasers for Season 6.
Epic Games will be awarding a whopping $10 million in prize money over the span of the Fall Skirmish.
"When we're closer to TwitchCon we'll drop all the details on the finale's competitive format, as well as a way to pre-register on a first-come first-served basis, so stay tuned for more info!" In essence, the 500 Fortnite community creators and competitors who will be taking part have been divided into 5 distinct Clubs. Each club gets points earned during weekly trial and high-skill events, with those points being awarded based on each player's skill. Teams of two will earn points by claiming Victory Royales and eliminations. Week One of competition, which kicks off today (September 21), will see players compete in Hold the Throne Duos matches.
Players of the same club will join and play squad matches from the default squad playlist, meaning they won't be in a lobby of pros, but a lobby of public players. The team with the most club points at the end of the six week event will then be declared the champions.
