'Fortnite: Battle Royale' is getting a tournament mode

Matchmaking during a tournament session will match players with opponents that are on similar point standings, so you'll continuously be playing against people in a similar skill group.

The game devs hope this will shine a light "onto the world's best players, increasing prize pools and player exposure from our competitions".

There will be a target score to reach during each tournament, and reaching said score will net participants a special pin to celebrate their accomplishments. If you boot up the game you'll be greeted with a splash screen with the latest news and, alongside details on the new Disco Domination Limited-Time Mode and the Fortnite Android open-beta, there's an image and description of the Quadcrasher. Controller players will be up against mouse and keyboard, and mobile players will be in the mix as well.

Description: Participate in the first in-game tournament, spanning across several days of daily competition! God help the touch players. "Every player will participate in the same competitions from start to finish, with equal opportunity to rise above the competition".

Epic Games has revealed that there's a new vehicle on its way to Fortnite on PS4, Xbox One, PC, Nintendo Switch, iOS, and Android.
