Find out everything you need to know about the upcoming Fortnite Community Cup tournament.
Competitive Fortnite players and fans are less than two weeks away from the inaugural Fortnite Champion Series (FNCS) Grand Royale event. Qualified individuals across the game's seven competitive server regions will begin their journey toward a share of the $5M USD prize pool on November 13. Epic Games recently provided more information about the official broadcast and set up for the Grand Royale.
In that same announcement, Epic revealed a Community Cup open to all players, where the top-performing teams will take home the "Victor Elite" outfit—also known as the purple FNCS Juggernaut. This outfit is the third FNCS-branded skin released by Epic Games since Chapter 2 - Season 6. The previous two were released in Fortnite's Item Shop, but players can win the Victor Elite skin through the first-ever Community Cup this time around.
