Fortnite Twitch Rivals $450K Zero Build Tournament: Everything you Need to Know

Fortnite and Twitch Rivals are back for another content creator event with $450K USD up for grabs!

 The iconic Battle Royale title removed its core building mechanic for one week only, and the world reacted remarkably well ( Content creators mainly found the game type much more casual as it focused more on angles and rotating than emphasizing the building aspect.

Those who have since moved on from Fortnite, such as Turner “Tfue” Tenney, Dennis “Cloakzy” Lepore, Imane “Pokimane” Anys and many more, gave the game another shot. Epic revealed Zero Build today as a new mode separate from the game's core modes. Naturally, tournament talk became a headline while organizers look to capitalize on this resurgence.

 Last week, Amazon's Twitch streaming platform joined the hype, teasing a potential no-build Fortnite tournament. Twitch and Epic Games made the Twitch Rivals Zero Build Creator Series official today, and ESTNN has all the details.
