Fortnite Tournament Modes Leaked!
UPDATE: The Tournaments have been OFFICIALLY Announced: https://www.epicgames.com/fortnite/esports/en-US/news/in-game-tournaments-announcement
The Tournament tab was accidently leaked by EPIC games this past week in a developer update video. Up until now we have had no more news on the matter, but thanks to a data-mine leak this has changed. A new tournament mode which has multiple modes for solo, duos, and squad matches.
The solo and duo modes seem like they will be limited time only, occurring over specific dates, but the squad mode seems to be a permanent addition with tournaments occurring “every Friday”. The solo tournament is set to run from October 27 until October 31 and will be titled Salty Springs Cup. This mode will give players three chances to win the tournament to earn their pin.
The duos tournament will be titled Tomato Temple Cup and will occur from October 28 to November 1st. There is still no news on how many attempts teams will have to earn points and get that pin.
The squad’s tournament is referred to as Fortnite Friday Night with a schedule of every Friday which seems to suggest that is will be a permanent game mode. There is also no news on how many points will be needed to earn these pins or how they will be displayed so you can show off to your friends.
Adding new game modes is almost always a good idea and giving people a new incentive to play in a more competitive environment is always fun.
Along with the pins there will also be loading screens that can be earned and seen below. I am sure in the future there will be more cosmetics for good performance!
With all this coming, out we should be hearing from Epic about this mode and getting the full picture since these modes are apparently just a couple weeks away.
What do you think about the tournament mode? Are you excited to try and earn those pins? Let us know in the comments down below!
