$8,000,000 up for grabs in the Fortnite #SummerSkirmish Series by @EpicGames!
A while back, Epic Games announced its decision to contribute up to $100,000,000 in cash prizes to Fortnite events throughout its first competitive season from 2018 to 2019. Portions of this pool will be split across online and offline events.
It seems that the first share of this pool will be going towards an online series called the Summer Skirmish, which will last for up to eight weeks beginning this Saturday, July 14th. A total of up to eight million dollars will be awarded throughout the series, with the first $250,000 going towards a Duos competition this Saturday.
Participants will include content creators and competitive Fortnite players invited by Epic Games themselves. However, it's been hinted that the format and participants may change from week to week, and that open qualifiers for Summer Skirmish will be available in the near future.
Players who are among those invited to Summer Skirmish have already begun to make themselves known on Twitter. See below for examples.
More of the invited players will likely make themselves known over the next few days. Use the hashtag #SummerSkirmish on Twitter to keep up with any updates concerning them.
