Epic Games have confirmed the next console tournament in the form of the Fortnite Celebration Cup on PS4. You can grab some exclusive loot for taking part so let’s check it out. 

While the wait for new content and Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 2 goes on, Epic Games have confirmed that they will be hosting a PlayStation 4 only tournament before the new season gets underway. 

The tournament will follow a similar structure to the Xbox-only event that took place back in July.  Players will compete in their own region for a slice of the eye-watering $1,000,000 prize pool but, for those who don’t reach the top, there are still exclusive rewards up for grabs that will set you apart from some of your battle royale foes.

Cosmetics are an easy way to set yourself apart from the crowd in Fortnite.

When the online tournament kicks off on February 15, eligible PlayStation 4 players will be able to grab the Tango skin, Wild Accent pickaxe, and the Take Cover Spray for performing well inside their respective region.

Though, you won’t just be handed them all. Only the top 5% of players will grab the skin, the top 25% will claim the pickaxe, while the top 50% of players will take home the spray. 

It’s unknown if the exclusive, free cosmetics will stack up depending on your finishing position – so we can’t say for certain that if you end up finishing in the top 5% that you will get all three. Though, that does seem a likely reward for your hard work.

To be eligible to take part in the PlayStation event, though, you will have to make sure that your Fortnite account is at least level 15 and that two-factor authentication is enabled on your Epic Games account. 

If you are eligible, the cosmetics can be won on day one – February 15 – once the tournament appears in the ‘compete’ tab on Fortnite. Day two – February 16 – is all about cash, with the top 4,000 players winning a slice. So, best of luck!

Ali-A reveals unreleased Fortnite skin haunting Weeping Woods

Popular Fortnite YouTuber Ali-A has shown that the previously leaked Madcap skin looks to be coming soon as a mobile glitch has revealed a strange character ‘haunting’ Weeping Woods. 

Across the different Fortnite seasons and updates, Epic Games have released a vast amount of cosmetics – with fans picking out their favorites and donning them in-game. 

Typically, these skins are leaked ahead of time as leakers are able to decrypt games files that are added to the mix with each new update and patch. Some of these skins never see the light of day, or are held back for quite a while, despite being leaked following a patch. 

One of the skins that falls into this category is the Madcap – a glowing, purple, Mushroom-themed skin. It was leaked quite a while back, and while it hasn’t been available just yet, it looks like it will be pretty soon.

Each new Fortnite update leaks a whole host of skins.

Popular YouTuber Ali-A pointed out that some Fortnite mobile players on Android had spotted the outline of a skin sitting around in Weeping Woods. 

The character that seems to be ‘haunting’ the POI, is stood under a tree with their arms crossed. However, it’s not colorful. Instead, it’s a blacked-out silhouette – almost as if it’s going to be added soon, but is showing up as a visual glitch in-game. 

Ali-A noted that the character is most definitely Madcap because of the shape of the head, and given that he’s hanging around Weeping Woods, there might be a challenge or quest line involved with unlocking the skin.

Even though the YouTuber’s speculation seems pretty spot on, there’s no telling if he’s right just yet because Epic Games hasn’t announced anything. 

It could very well be that, as Fortnitemares unfolds, the skin will finally be available through the item shop and there are also challenges in Weeping Woods to unlock skin styles. Though, we’ll just have to wait and see.
