The Fortnite devs tested the esports waters with the latest limited Solo Showdown mode for Battle Royale and is diving in a big way. Today, Epic Games has announced that it will provide $100,000,000 for Fortnite Battle Royale esports tournament prize pools during the first official year of competitive play.

Not only will Epic get right into the mix with esports, the blog post on the official site suggests a plan to be "more inclusive" and focused on the "joy of playing and watching the game." Exactly what this means isn't known yet, but additional information should be rolled out as the 2018 - 2019 season gets underway.
The team plans to reveal competitive structures and eligible platforms in the weeks ahead, so stay tuned to Shacknews for additional updates.
