Epic Games revealed the next stage of Fortnite competitive play following the World Cup and it will be the Championship Series that begins with Season 10.

During a break of the action during the Fortnite World Cup, it was revealed the Championship Series would be coming in Season 10 and it will feature millions of dollars up for grabs, as the World Cup.

“We will be debuting the Fortnite Championship series,” said Sundown. “This will give players a chance to compete against the best of the best where every single result matters with a leaderboard to track results over the course of a season.”

“Follow your favorites players on their quest to become the first season champions with millions of dollars at stake.”

Epic Games didn’t reveal all of the information about the new competitive format but it does sound like the pro community won’t be going away after the World Cup as Epic shows they are still very well invested in the esport side of things.

As Season 10 rapidly approaches, we expect to hear a lot more about what Epic Games have in store for this mode.

It’s exciting for players to have something to look forward to after the World Cup since this was looked at as the last major payday for many players for a while.

Fortnite esports have been largely considered hit or miss but considering the extremely high viewership the World Cup was able to pull it, it’s clear there is an audience for it so Epic will look to keep improving things going forward.

One thing that makes Fortnite so interesting is players from all across the world have an equal opportunity of getting a chunk of a prize pool and the Championship Series sounds like it’ll be the same.

We still don’t have an official launch date for Season 10 but Epic said a teaser for it would be revealed at the World Cup so stay tuned for that.

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.

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.
