Epic Games has announced an exclusive Fortnite tournament available only to Android mobile players.
Fortnite: Battle Royale has been on a roll as of late with its in-game character skins. Some noteworthy additions to the plethora of new additions include Aquaman, Black Manta, Captain America and Deadpool. Without a doubt, these cross-promotions with DC Comics and Marvel drive a lot of traffic to Fortnite, given the cachet that comes with each recognizable character. Exclusive content typically opens the eyes of Fortnite players; as well as collectors looking to gather all skins available.
Enter Samsung, who back in August of 2018, granted Galaxy users the opportunity to acquire the highly sought after Galaxy skin. This exclusive space-themed skin was available only for a limited amount of time. At this point, players can no longer claim the original Galaxy skin, but Samsung is still fully involved in Fortnite. News broke earlier today, regarding how players can earn a brand new Galaxy-themed skin in a promotion with Samsung.
Fortnite released details on the upcoming Galaxy Cup presented by Samsung in a blog posted earlier today. It's a Fortnite tournament available only to Samsung Galaxy owners, however it will be available in all seven competitive regions. Those areas include NA East, NA West, Europe, Asia, Oceania, Latin America and the Middle East. The tournament creators have established placement thresholds in all regions.
“During the Galaxy Cup, the top-performing players for each day will have the opportunity to earn the Galaxy Scout Outfit. All players who participate in a minimum of five games will be awarded the Galaxy Wrap. Daily regional winners will be determined as follows.”
- Europe: Top 10,000
- NA East: Top 7,500
- NA West: Top 2,500
- Latin America: Top 2,500
- Asia: Top 1,250
