A year ago, Fortnite esports began with the Celebrity Pro-Am and now Epic is amping up the festivities this year.
It’s crazy to think it hasn’t even been a full year since the first official Epic Games sponsored Fortnite event was held.
During that time an absurd amount of money has been awarded, a player named Tfue rose to superstardom and filed a lawsuit against one of the largest organizations, and the game is nearly unrecognizable compared to that season.
As we near the anniversary of that event, Epic is finally repeating an event. In classic Epic fashion, they had to up the ante.
This year they have a similar list of high-powered athletes and musicians playing alongside streamers, it will be 50 duos in all.
But they also added a new event, the Creative Showdown with even more streamers and celebrities competing in a variety of unique creative events.
How to watch the Fortnite Summer Block Party
If you are lucky enough to have grabbed a ticket, you can attend in person at the Forum in Inglewood, California.
But if you own a ticket you probably aren’t reading this article, so for the rest of you, the event will be streamed on Twitch, YouTube, Mixer and more platforms.
The only stream up and running will be the official one from Fortnite, so it should be easy to find.
The event is taking place this weekend on June 15th and June 16th. The Creative Showdown will take place on the 15th and the Celebrity Pro-Am will follow it on the 16th.
There will be break ins for other events and interviews with the competitors as well.
Plus Epic officially moved back the Week 10 qualifiers so this weekend the Fortnite world will be fully focused on Inglewood.
