Epic Games have announced that the Fortnite Champion Series is making its return very soon with a Duos tournament and your partner is going to need to be playing on the same platform as you in order to compete. 

The game developers revealed the return of FNCS on March 10, just 10 days away from its official start date on March 20, meaning players don’t really have a lot of time in order to prepare.

Prior to that, though, partners can get up to speed and compete in a series of training simulators to test their skills, running between March 13-15.

Many Fortnite competitive players will be looking forward to seeing who reigns victorious in the new FNCS.

For those wondering about the breakdown of the new series competition, Epic have also revealed an official statement on the Fortnite website to keep members of the competitive community in the loop.

In it, they said: “In this season of FNCS, there will be two tournament tracks: one for players on PC, and one for players on console and mobile.

“Each track will have equal prizing and their own champions. Keep in mind, and this is mission critical, your Duos partner needs to be in the same platform group. This means that PC players cannot partner with console and mobile players.

In order to get to the Season Finals, Duos who have top scores in each region per server will progress. Another route to making it that far will be opened up to the top scoring players of the overall Series Leaderboard, which will be tallied up during the entire season.

Below you can see the potential prize pool up for grabs for those who make it to the Season Finals, with amounts varying based on the region in which the competitor is based. As is usually the case, the Europe and North America series will be the most lucrative.

Epic have also revealed the prize pools per region for the Duos tournament.

It will be interesting to see how players compete during the tournament, whether or not the vaults will take priority or not due to the masses of loot found there, and what locations will be the most popular for the tournament too.

Epic have also confirmed that there will soon be an announcement involving a competitive roadmap for Fortnite in 2020, so once we know more about that, we’ll be the first to let you know.

We’re now in the seventh week of Fortnite’s Marvel-themed season meaning that there’s not long to go until the current battle pass items are locked away for good. Here’s everything you need to know about the latest challenges to help with your experience gains.

As with every other season, XP is vital in Fortnite. Whether you’re trying to unlock one of the 100 base tiers in the Season 4 Battle Pass, or you’re pushing beyond that for ultra-rare skins, there’s always something to pursue.

Challenges are often the best way to help boost your XP gains. Most can be knocked off in a matter of minutes for some of the biggest XP dumps possible in the battle royale. If you’ve already been ticking objectives off each week, you’ll feel right at home this time around.

From searching chests to tallying eliminations, the Week 7 challenges couldn’t be simpler. Here’s our complete overview of the eight unique tasks on offer.

Be on the lookout for enemies near Doom’s Domain this week.

You’ll be jumping around the map quite a bit this week as almost every challenge will take you to a new location. Finding eliminations at Craggy Cliffs should be a breeze as this is sure to be a hotspot over the next few days. Just be prepared for an immediate fight every time you drop here in Week 7.

The same can be said for Doom’s Domain as players will be looking to enter the vault for easy XP. Make sure you have a decent loadout before heading in as you’re sure to face some opposition here.

One rather unique challenge this week asks you to deal damage in a very specific way. First, you’ll need to find and equip Storm’s Whirlwind Blast ability. Once you’ve got an enemy in your sights, use this ability to knock them back. Once they’re pushed off course, you’ll then need to swap your weapons and deal 1,000 damage.

To tick off multiple challenges at once, you could always find Storm’s ability, then head to Craggy Cliffs, or even Coral Castle. The full list of objectives for Week 7 can be found below.

If you’re struggling with the unique tasks this week, here’s a few quick pointers. Storm’s ability can be used to knock enemies off high ground vantage points. Any fall damage will count towards your weekly objective.

Additionally, Tony Stark’s hidden Lake House can be found just North of the Stark Industries POI.
