Epic Games have announced a brand new contest for their popular Fortnite: Battle Royale game.

Seeing that Season 4 has been filled with a variety of superhero-like characters and skins, coupled with the numerous movie sets that have been added across the map, the premise of 'Fortnite Blockbuster' aligns perfectly with major themes found in the game.

The replay system has been a massive success, and its complex and advanced features, coupled with strong creative ability, should result in some superbly produced Fortnite films.
