Fortnite’s first UK tournament is asking fresh talent to compete against millionaire prodigy Wolfiez
FORTNITE will be holding its first ever major tournament in the UK this year, with some of the game’s biggest stars in attendance.
The major Fortnite event is being hosted by Red Bull, and will be called Red Bull Contested, which will take place in Edinburgh at McEwan Hall.
The tournament will be a one-day event on June 10, 2023, and will see Fortnite superstars from around the world competing.
Competing in the event is Jaden ‘Wolfiez’ Ashman who made headlines when he came second in the Fortnite World Cup.
Aged just 15, Wolfiez was the youngest ever player to win over $1million (£800k).
The confirmed list of Fortnite pros so far includes:
- Martin ‘MrSavage’ Foss Andersen
- Harry ‘Veno’ Pearson
- Thomas ‘Th0masHD’ Høxbro Davidsen
- Jaden ‘Wolfiez’ Ashman
- Zachariah ‘Pinq’ Siddall
- Jackson ‘Eomzo’ Fretz
- Reuben ‘Nebs’ Belisle
- Aleksa ‘Queasy’ Cvetkovic
- Alexandre ‘Andilex’ Christophe
- Sebastian ‘Trippernn’ Sommer Kjaer
It won’t just be for Fortnite pros however, and you can get in on the action and face off against some of the biggest competitors on the planet.
On May 20 and 21, 2023, Fortnite will hold open online qualifiers for UK and EU players, who will compete to earn a wild card spot in the tournament.
Wolfiez said: “This event is going to be massive for Fortnite in the UK – the best players all here for a major tournament, and with a proper Red Bull twist, there hasn’t been anything like it here.”
The tournament will use a unique competition format made specifically for the event that will see aggressive play rewarded.
While most rounds will be played as normal, the final four rounds will award double points for eliminations.
This means that players who want to win will have to take big risks to eliminate other players, rather than stay safe, away from the danger.
The tournament will be broadcast live on Red Bull’s Twitch and YouTube channels, and top players will reportedly be streaming too.
Those interested in attending the event live at McEwan Hall will be able to purchase tickets from the Red Bull website starting from April 10, 2023.
