Fortnite is headed to Microsoft Stores across the United States, Canada, Puerto Rico and Australia. This is one of the first opportunities for many to try out local competitive gaming. The events started on Friday, April 20 as part of the store's ASUS ROG Arena program. The service has already served over 10,000 players of all skill levels and also includes Overwatch or League of Legends. Attendees will be eligible to take home the grand prize of gift cards applicable toward 2,500 V-Bucks each week depending on how high they place and how many opponents they eliminate each round. The schedules and details for this can be found below.
Solos: Friday, April 20 - Friday, May 11
Duos: Friday, May 18 - Friday, June 8
Squads: Friday, June 15 - Friday, July 6
It's a good way to get into the game or generally the competitive scene. It's worth noting that Microsoft Stores put on some great gaming events as I've personally attended a number of them. It's best to check in with your local store to see what kind of setup they have going, but the dates above are what's initially scheduled.
