Fortnite PS4 Tournament How To Participate In Celebration Cup For $1,000,000 Prize Pool

Epic Games has announced a PS4 exclusive Celebration Cup tournament for Fortnite with a $1,000,000 prize pool.

Fortnite Chapter 2 season 1 continues to drag on as we impatiently await the second season currently slated to begin on February 20th. However, before that happens, a PlayStation 4 exclusive tournament named the Celebration Cup will commence. This will feature a $1,000,000 prize pool with free entry for users in every region.

Forbes speculates that a two-week Fortnite Chapter 2 season 1 event will commence on February 6th. This is because Epic Games had said there would be a two-week event prior to the launch of season 2. Whether this happens as predicted has yet to be confirmed, but we wouldn't bet against Forbes' estimation.

However, while the above is unconfirmed as of writing, what is guaranteed is a two-day PS4 only tournament with free entry for those who wish to participate. Below you'll discover its date, prizes, and how to participate.
