How to purchase tickets for the Fortnite World Cup Finals

Published

on

The Fortnite World Cup Finals arrived on July 26th and you’ll need some tickets if you are planning on attending. Fortunately, tickets can be purchased easily via Epic’s Ticketmaster web page!

The Fortnite World Cup Online Opens ended a few weeks ago, but the excitement isn’t over just yet. The FWC Finals approach at a blistering pace as we make our way through July.

The Finals take place from July 26 to July 28 and feature a wide array of activities as part of the Fortnite festival. In order to enter the event, you’ll need to obtain a ticket. Epic Games has set up a site specifically tailored to get you there without hassle.

Purchasing Tickets for Fortnite World Cup Finals

The FWC Finals take place on July 26 to July 28

Organizing major events on the scale of the World Cup Finals is certainly difficult. Epic Games will be running the entire event, but have contracted Ticketmaster to assist them with ticketing services. You’re probably familiar with it if you’ve ever attending a sporting event in the US.

If you plan attending the ground-breaking event, you’ll need to grab a ticket before they are all gone. Epic Games did run a pre-registration event for tickets and even sold out the first wave of tickets extremely quickly. However, the studio held onto an additional wave of tickets until now.

To purchase tickets, head to the Fortnite World Cup Finals Ticketmaster page. Once there, you’ll be able to select seating and evaluate prices. Naturally, the “best” seats in the lower sections have been taken in earlier waves, but it’s less important for esports events than for traditional sports.

Lower sections seats are taken, but the upper stands offer great prices

From our study of the site, you can expect prices of $50.00 or $100.00 (plus taxes) depending on the section you want.

These prices will probably stay the same until the end of ticket sales. Epic Games warns against purchasing from any other source as Ticketmaster is the only legit site for purchasing these tickets. You’re on your own if you decide to try and get a better price from a reseller.

Before the event, Epic Games will contact ticket holders about obtaining and registering their Battle Pass wristband. This wristband will be picked up at the event and will allow you access to exclusive in-game content, keep track of festival activities, and more. You’ll receive additional details shortly after purchasing a ticket.

You can also watch the event from home (or anywhere with an internet connection) if you can’t attend. Epic Games will be live-streaming the Finals to Twitch, Youtube, Twitter, Facebook, and other platforms.

Alright, we have to ask, will you be attending the Fortnite World Cup Finals? The event will be the biggest esports competition in history by prize pool with $30,000,000 dollars on the line. If you love Fortnite esports, you’re not going to want to miss the action.

Patch Notes

Fortnite v13.20 Update patch notes

Published

on

It’s a new week, and that means that there’s a fresh update for us all to enjoy, as the Fortnite v12.30 patch goes live on all platforms on Tuesday, June 30, introducing a new weapon and a major change to an existing item.

Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 3 has been live for a few weeks, and while the first major update of the season made sweeping changes to the game, Epic haven’t sat on their hands, dropping the 13.10 update to add Firefly Jars, and a second patch on June 30.

The Flare Gun and Portable Upgrade Benches are the major inclusions in this week’s patch, and we’ve got everything you need to know about the new items.

Flare Gun

Epic love to include new weapons for us to try out, and the v13.20 Update is no exception, with the Flare Gun finally making it’s long-awaited debut in the game.

The weapon, which holds six cartridges and deals 60 damage on a direct hit, was first spotted in the game’s files all the way back in Chapter 1, but for one reason or another never made it to the full game. Finally, though, it’s arrived, and with its ability to start fires, it is the perfect way to burn through enemy structures and send them back to the pre-game lobby.

The Flare Gun is the latest weapon added to Fortnite.

Portable Upgrade Bench

The other major change is the to the Upgrade Bench, which can now be broken and carried around to be used whenever you need it.

Simply hit it with your harvesting tool and it will transform into floor loot, which you can pick up and place in your inventory.

The Upgrade Bench can now be broken.

Loserfruit Fortnite skin bundle: Leak and release date

Loserfruit Fortnite skin

The next cosmetic item in Fortnite’s Icon series, this time for streamer Loserfruit, has been leaked, with the release date all but confirmed for June 21.

Following on from Ninja’s skin release earlier in the year, Loserfruit, one of the most popular Australian streamers, has been waiting on her skin coming to the game for months now.

Its initial launch was pushed back due to ongoing protests around the world, but it looks like it’s finally getting a proper release.

On June 21, a handful of leakers got their hands on the encrypted files for the skin, and accessed them, showcasing a full, high-quality look at the skin we’ll soon be able to rock in-game.

Featuring a replica of Loserfruit’s hoody with rainbow-colored arms, the arm portions light up spectacularly, and there is also a backpack that mirrors her own real-life version.

Loserfruit skin release date and price

The skin is set to release on June 21, now confirmed by Epic Games. Reliable data miner iFireMonkey says that a source has confirmed this date for the entire bundle.

The bundle includes a fruity pickaxe too, as well as the Bounce Berry emote.

The skin will be available at 8pm ET. It will cost 1,500 V-Bucks for just the skin, or 2,000 for the whole bundle.

Loserfruit herself is actually already rocking the skin in-game on her stream, thanks to exclusive access before the rest of us, so you can see it in action here.

We’ll keep you updated when the skin bundle is available to purchase in the item shop.

When does Fortnite Season 3 end and Season 4 begin?

Find out the Fortnite Season 3 end date and Season 4 start date for 2020.

Published

on

We’re only a couple of days into Fortnite Season 3, but fans are already wondering when the next season will come. We’re not sick of the new season – far from it. The past couple of seasons have lasted about 120 days each, though, so it’s not crazy to hope that this one is significantly shorter.

When Fortnite Season 3 released, data miners were quick to tell everyone how much time was left in the season. At the time of release, Epic had an end date of August 27, 2020. That’s only 71 days long, which is quite reasonable.

Not so fast, though. Data miner FireMonkey was quick to point out that the number of weekly challenges doesn’t match an 11-week season. There are already 12 weeks worth of challenges in the game files, which would have Season 3 ending on September 3.

This isn’t out of the ordinary. Epic have, traditionally, extended seasons for an extra week or two with Overtime Challenges. The past two seasons, which were both extended over a month past their original end-date, are still outliers in the history of Fortnite seasons.

A one-week extension is nothing major. We can live with that – and will even enjoy the Overtime Challenges that Epic give us. There’s no need to panic, right now, but the season will likely be extended at least one time.

Normally, this wouldn’t be something we’d cover so early in a Fortnite season, but the recent history of lengthy seasons makes us wonder if this one will follow suit. Hopefully, we’ll be playing Season 4 by September 4.
