Fortnite $100K Duos PlayStation Cup: Format, Prize Breakdown & More

Find out how you can compete in the PlayStation Cup to win in-game rewards and cash prizes.


Fortnite players on PlayStation should be no stranger to exclusive tournaments. Epic Games and Sony have collaborated frequently to host competitions with significant cash prizes on the line. That remains the same with the upcoming PlayStation Cup. 

Beginning March 11, competitors on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 can participate in this two-day tournament for a chance to win an Emoticon and a share of $100K USD. So, grab yourself a Duo partner and keep reading below to see what the upcoming PlayStation Cup has to offer. 

PlayStation Cup Format

This tournament utilizes the Duos format, which competitive Fortnite shifted to as its primary game mode in 2022. The PlayStation Cup occurs over two days, with round one taking place on March 11 and the second round on March 12. Round one will presumably last three hours, where players can participate in a maximum of ten matches. 

Only the top 50 in each region will advance to round two. In past PlayStation tournaments, the final round is a six-game custom lobby format. We can expect the same in this competition or something along the same line.
