Epic is going to take Fortnite into battle royale esports in a great big way and has committed $100,000,000 in tournament prize pools for the 2018-2019 year of competitive play. "We're getting behind competitive play in a big way, but our approach will be different", the blog reads, "- we plan to be more inclusive, and focused on the joy of playing and watching the game."

The blog post doesn't provide any more details, but Epic is promising that "more details about competitive structures and eligible platforms" will be revealed in the coming weeks.

Stay tuned!
