A $20k Fortnite tournament featuring top streamers and entertainers is taking place on July 8th.

NerdOut, a collaborative YouTube music channel, is hosting the event that will feature SouljaBoy, Ninja, Dr. Lupo, Nadeshot, Noahj456, Tfue, Loserfruit and more.

The streamers will not be hunting each other like in the Fortnite Celebrity Pro-Am, however. The 2v2 double elimination tournament will be based on the amount of kills a player can get, rather than a high placing.

Much like Keemstar’s Friday Fortnite format, the teams of two will load into a match with their opponent, as a squad, and play two matches together. Whichever team has the most kills after two matches will advance to the next round.

There is one major difference to Friday Fortnite, sabotage is not only allowed, but encouraged. Unlike Keemstar’s tournament, which does not allow sabotage like knocking over opponent’s structures or building in front of them when they try to shoot, NerdOut’s Anything Goes Tournament will feature all of that.

Everyone in the tournament is required to stream their matches, so those interested in tuning in can simply pick their favorite streamer and follow along on July 8th.

Tfue and Cloak will enter as the favorites due to their success in the similarly formatted Friday Fortnite tournament, however they will have to deal with sabotage they might not be as familiar with.

Other famous pairs include Ninja & C9 Hysteria, Soulja Boy & Alicus, TBNRKenny & TBNRFrags and Dr Lupo & TSM Kraftyy.

The NerdOut $20k Anything Goes Tournamnet will be played according to the following ruleset, courtesy of Bebo:

Fortnite’s yearly Fortnitemares event has finally arrived, but when does Season 5 arrive?

Fortnite’s new season dropped on August 27,  introducinging tons of changes to the Fortnite World with the likes of new Marvel-themed points-of-interest, superhero characters, and abilities for fans of the battle royale to enjoy. Midas’ Revenge adds even more for fans to sink their teeth into.

Epic Games
Midas’ Revenge has introduced new skins with their yearly event.

When does Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 5 start?

With only a few days to go of Fortnitemares’ Midas’ Revenge event, Chapter 2 Season 4 has over a month left, with an expected end date of November 30th, as reliable Fortnite leaker HYPEX claims.

The Baba Yaga skin has just been released alongside the Ghostbusters bundle, with more soon to come. The skin is ‘Rare’ and part of the ‘Coven Fresh’ set, costing 1,200 V Bucks.

 

After the Fortnitemare event, the fifth season of Fortnite’s Chapter 2 should follow immediately, along with some more major changes and a new theme.

Will Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 5 be available through Apple?

A portion of the mobile player base is currently unable to download Fortnite Season 4, due to the ongoing legal feud between Epic Games and Apple, with Apple blocking all future Fortnite updates on the App store.

While the feud is being resolved, there have been suggestions that Season 4 could potentially be extended for Apple users, although that remains to be seen.

Epic Games has already extended seasons in Fortnite Chapter 2, but there has been no sign from the developers that they have any intention of doing so this time around.

What will Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 5’s theme be?

With Fortnite Season 4 being based completely around Marvel characters, there have been rumors that a DC-themed season could come next.

The Fortnite devs have already introduced members of the DC Comics universe as seen with Aquaman and Black Manta in Season 3’s recent Splash Down events. They may go a step further at the next opportunity, adding more familiar faces.

Epic also revealed plans for a Joker bundle that is expected to be released towards the end of Season 4, which could be used to build hype for the upcoming season.

With a new Batman movie also in the works, it would not be too surprising to see another partnership between DC and Epic but as for now, fans will have to wait until Season 5 draws nearer.
