The devs at Epic Games released a new post today letting Fortnite players know about the impending Fall Skirmish and the start of Season 6. A $10 million dollar prize pool is up for grabs as players will be making their way to TwitchCon for the finals in the skirmish, while the company hinted that Season 6 would be starting soon without a word about what the hell it will be about. You can read more on the skirmish here.
Beginning in October, we’re opening up inclusive competition, where everybody can play and compete. To make that possible we’ve had to harden and scale our systems and infrastructure. For example, August was Fortnite’s biggest month yet, with 78.3 million of you showing up to play. This exposed weak points and allowed us to make targeted improvements to critical systems, such as stats and servers. The Summer Skirmish also, as you all probably noticed, highlighted problems with performance and spectating, which we’ve been working on ever since. We’re excited about kicking off the new competition system and we’ll have details dropping in the weeks ahead.
On to the Fall Skirmish! In our previous blog we mentioned the Fall Skirmish will include a variety of play formats each week. All Skirmish long we’ll be iterating on broadcast tools, new weekly formats and using that information to help inform our decisions for future competitive events and the Fortnite World Cup.
