Fortnite to Become Part of Two DreamHack Tournaments

Published: Oct 1, 2019

One of the most familiar and long-standing names in esports tournament organisation, DreamHack, has announced that it will be hosting two new Fortnite community tournaments at two of its big winter events.

The tournaments will have a prize pool of $250,000 available to be won at each event and they will form part of the DreamHack Winter tournament in Jonkoping Sweden (Nov 29 to Dec 1) and then the DreamHack Anaheim event in the New Year (Feb 21 to Feb 23).

Any Fortnite player that has purchased a BYOC ticket will be able to participate in the event.

25 Years of DreamHack

Speaking about the announcement of Fortnite’s inclusion at two big winter events, the Co-CEO of DreamHack, Marcus Lindmark stated:

“We are extremely happy to be able to bring this huge tournament to our festivals. It really gives the core of the DreamHack festivals, the visitors, a chance to play for the big money. With the support of Epic Games, we’re now writing DreamHack history by setting up the biggest community tournaments to date which couldn’t be more perfect as we celebrate 25 years of DreamHack.”

Both tournaments will be the biggest community events for Fortnite held in their respective part of the world. Details about the tournament remain scarce at this point, although it is expected that the game will be played on solo mode.

Furthermore, in addition to having a BYOC ticket, a number of additional ways in which players can compete in the tournament are scheduled to be announced soon.

Popular Move

This looks like being a very shrewd move on the part of DreamHack. Not only is it a fitting way to celebrate their 25th year, but it also opens up one of the most popular esports to their community, allowing them not just to attend the events in Jonkoping and Anaheim, but also take part in them if they so wish.

It is also a boost for the Fortnite community which, after the success of the recent Fortnite World Cup, has been seeking to enhance the prospects of play across the globe still further and these two events in Europe and North America certainly offer players an opportunity to do that.

Community tournaments, which allow anybody to get involved rather than teams or individuals having to qualify or be invited to participate, are of a growing interest in the esports community due to their inclusivity and the fact that Fortnite solo mode can see many single players competing at once, makes this a perfect esport for DreamHack to offer this particular type of tournament to its customers.

Other Events at DreamHack

The DreamHack Winter will also host its popular CS:GO tournament, as well as a Super Smash Bros Ultimate European Circuit event too.

The event which also features many other attractions and a huge LAN for customers to become part of, will also see music artists performing including Amaranthe, Halestorm and New Years Day.

Details are a little sketchier for the Anaheim event with just Fortnite and CS:GO tournaments confirmed to take place at the time of writing.
