Following the release of the first-ever console only Fortnite tournament on Xbox One, Epic Games have confirmed a similar event will be held exclusively for PlayStation 4 players in the near future.

With the $30m Fortnite World Cup event in New York just around the corner, Epic have been keeping players entertained with a variety of different tournaments, including the admittedly disastrous Trios Cash Cup.

As well as announcing another trios event, they revealed plans to host an Xbox only solo tournament – the first ever competitive Fortnite tournament to be restricted to console. This allowed the best Xbox players in the world to earn some prize money without having to play against players on PC like in the World Cup qualifiers.

$1 million was on offer in prize money for Xbox players.

The decision was hailed, but concerns were raised as PlayStation 4 players were seemingly missing out on the chance to compete, despite console lobbies containing a mix of players from both platforms.

However, Epic Games’ community manager – Nathan Mooney – confirmed on Reddit that the developer has plans to host a PS4 Cup soon.


Mooney said: “For the folks inquiring within the thread, we additionally have plans to host a PS4 cup – stay tuned for details.”

The move is likely to be well received, with players on both platforms now being handed the opportunity to compete against the best of the best in order to take home their share of a large prize pool.

EPIC GAMESThe Xbox tournament had no arena requirements.

No further information has been released regarding the upcoming PS4 Cup, but it should follow a similar format to the Xbox contest.

The solo only event consists of a semi-final and finals, where the top 1500 players from the first day of action will qualify to battle it out for their share of $1 million.

Unlike other competitive events, players will not be required to have reached Champions League division in arena to enter the tournament, something which the PS4 Cup is also likely to include.

As always, Dexerto will keep you updated on when the event is officially announced by Epic Games as well as information on how to enter and compete.


Ali-A uncovers teasers for future Fortnite skins: Matrix, Witcher, Ant-Man & more

YouTuber and longtime Fortnite superfan Alastair ‘Ali-A’ Aiken has discovered big clues for more crossover skins that could be coming soon to the game.

Season 5 of Fortnite kicked off with a bang as The Mandalorian and Baby Yoda arrived on The Island. Since then, we’ve seen God of War’s Kratos, Halo’s Master Chief, The Walking Dead’s Daryl and Michonne, and even Predator get their own skins.

So who’s coming next? Well, Ali-A has some ideas based on a hint list that was sent to him by Fortnite creators Epic Games themselves, and it seems as though more epic movie crossovers are on their way.

What new skins are coming in Fortnite Season 5?

In a new video celebrating the arrival of Terminator, Ali-A also revisited a list of items that he’d been sent by Epic Games, with each item acting as a teaser for a ‘hunter’ that would be coming to the game at some point during Season 5.

It appears that many hints on the list have already been discovered: The cup is The Mandalorian and Baby Yoda; the sunglasses are Terminator; the face paint is Kratos; the mud mask is Predator; and the syrup is Mancake, for example.

As for the remaining items on the list, there are some very interesting theories about who they could relate to, and which iconic characters could be coming to The Island next.

Ali-A explains that the Ant-Farm item is most likely a hint at Ant-Man finally joining the game, as he was given his own point of interest during Season 4’s Marvel extravaganza but was never added as a character.

The red and blue jellybeans could be a hint towards characters from The Matrix. This will likely be either Neo or Trinity, as they’re both set to return in the upcoming sequel Matrix 4 that’s due out later in 2021.

Tokens also appear as an item on the list, and Ali-A believes this is a hint towards The Witcher protagonist Geralt, especially as the Netflix adaptation of the game features a song called Toss A Coin To Your Witcher.

A crossover with The Witcher could be coming to Fortnite.

A baseball bat could be a hint towards Scout from Team Fortress 2, or it could have pointed to The Walking Dead crossover that already happened. Similarly, space bananas could be a hint towards Samus Aran from Metroid, or it could have just been about Master Chief.

Elsewhere, the golden back scratcher is likely going to represent the long-rumored Female Midas skin, as it links up with the ‘Midas Touch’ myth. As for the hand wraps, even Ali-A is unsure what they could hint towards, but it could be a boxer of some sort.

We’ll have to wait and see whether any of these crossover skin predictions come true before Season 5 of Fortnite comes to an end on March 15, 2021.
