Popular YouTuber Daniel ‘KEEMSTAR’ Keem confirmed that ‘Friday Fortnite’ would be making a sensational return – the full list of participants has now been released.

The ‘DramaAlert’ host was quick to cover the recent drama between FaZe Clan and Fortnite Battle Royale star Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney with Tfue deciding to pursue a lawsuit against the organization over an “oppressive contract”.

FaZe co-owner Ricky ‘Banks’ Banks was quick to refute the claims and, as a show of good faith, FaZe offered up the amount they made from Tfue as a prize pool for Friday Fortnite – which had been discontinued for over a year – taking place on May 31.

The full list of participants has now been revealed including Twitch superstar Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins and his duo partner Malachi ‘Reverse2k’ Greiner – who will face the winner of a qualifying tournament aimed to provide a smaller streamer with the chance to gain some popularity.

Should Ninja advance past his first matchup, he could face popular rapper Daystar ‘Tory Lanez’ Peterson in a later round if they can navigate a tricky match up against Ghost Gaming’s controller duo Issa ‘Issa’ Rahim and Liam ‘Kamo’ Fillery.

YouTube sensation Jimmy ‘Mr Beast‘ Donaldson will also take part in the event but faces a difficult first-round game against Twitch streamers Sypher ‘SypherPK’ Ali and Jimmy ‘HighDistortion’ – two players known for their skills on the battlefield.

The tournament also sees the return of fan favorites Nick ‘NICKMERCS’ Kolcheff and Ghost Gaming’s Aydan ‘Aydan’ Conrad who could meet each other later in the tournament to recreate some of their famous battles at the recently renovated Neo Tilted.

100 Thieves star Rachel ‘Valkyrae’ Hofsetter partners with Team SoloMid’s Maria ‘Chica’ Lopez but face a baptism of fire in the tournament, squaring up against World Cup qualified FaZe Clan duo Danny ‘Dubs’ Walsh and ‘Megga’. 

Other competitors including Team Secret’s Kyle ‘Mongraal’ Jackson who partners with regular duo partner Team Atlantis’ Dmitri ‘Mitr0’ Van de Vrie – two players who considered among the very best in the EU region.

The full list of participants and tournament bracket can be found below.

With the likes of Ninja and fellow Aussie Loserfruit being first to receive skins in the Icon Series, Lachlan is now next in line to receive these new cosmetics.

In their latest blog post, Epic Games confirmed that Lachlan’s Icon Series set will arrive in the Fortnite item shop on November 12 at 4PM PT/ 7PM ET/ 11PM GMT/ 9AM AEST.

“Lachlan is the third creator to join the Icon Series from among the Fortnite community, following streamers Ninja and Loserfruit.” they announced, before confirming the next creator to be added, “Entering the Icon Series next will be Spanish creator TheGrefg.”

Lachlan’s Icon Series set will arrive with a new tournament that players can compete in, to unlock the skin for free. The YouTuber will also be competing in the event and giving fans the first look at the bundle, which includes an outfit, back bling, emote, and a pickaxe.

As of now, little has been shared about the upcoming tournament but Epic has revealed it to be “one-of-a-kind” with more information to follow before the event.

“Been dreaming of this day ever since I fell in love with the game back in 2017,” Lachlan reacted, revealing his excitement for the upcoming skin release, “official reveal of the skin coming soon.”

The official reveal of this skin is currently expected to be shared on November 1, and the next Fortnite star for the icon series will be Spanish star TheGrefg, although it is unclear just when he will receive a skin bundle.
