"Fortnite" Developer Epic Games Launches In-Game Tournaments Tomorrow

Thanks to the brand new v6.10 patch for Fortnite Battle Royale, players are now able to separately change their sensitivity for building instead of it being included with the aiming sensitivity.

Fortnite is one of the most lucrative games of our time, for both developer Epic Games and subsequent content creators.

Today's update also kicked off the first official in-game Fortnite Battle Royale tournament.

Earlier today we launched the in-game tournament system and hosted the first session of the Alpha Tournament on the European Union server. By selecting Events, you'll see all of the tournaments that are coming up, along with their scheduled dates and start times. The goal is to earn as many points as possible, which are awarded by eliminating players and getting high placements in matches. "Score enough points during any scheduled event session and you'll earn a golden pin for that tournament".

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.

Messonnier said some patients diagnosed with AFM have recovered quickly while others continue to struggle with paralysis. No geographic clustering has been found and there is no other "unifying factor to explain the peaks", she added.

Fortnite tournaments will support crossplay - in fact, you need to opt in to crossplay to participate. Highlights include the ability to set build mode controller sensitivity on console, and CPU performance optimizations on Nintendo Switch. Controller players will be up against mouse and keyboard, and mobile players will be in the mix as well. Epic has explained how tournaments work in Fortnite. During the tournament, the game's matchmaking will try to get you into games with players of a similar point count, meaning the better you do the more experienced opponents you'll be matched against.

These new Tournaments will be available for everyone to play, and Epic's official announcements page describing them a chance to "compete directly alongside the pros for prizes and glory".

Description: Grab a friend and take on the world - until you are the last two left.

In-Game Tournaments will be part of Fortnite update 6.10, which launches tomorrow (October 16).
