Epic Games, the studio behind Fortnite, shared details of the Fortnite World Cup in a blog post on Friday. The qualifying period will run from April 13 to June 16, and a $1 million prize pool will be allocated to eligible players.

The World Cup will also present the biggest prize money in the export scene: 30 million dollars; even richer than The International by DOTA 2, which reached 25.5 million dollars for last year's world championship. Fortnite has been quite rewarding these days, and many people think it's because of the growing of the Battle Royale genre. Again, Epic is promising to open up these tournaments to better serve a variety of playstyles, with different modes and formats to be revealed in the coming weeks.
