Thanos Cup Live in Asia & Australia

While the Thanos Cup has just gone live in the Asia and Australia regions, the Fortnite servers were also having some issues.

However, they have now been fixed and you should be able to jump into the tournament without any issues.

To make up for the issues, the tournament has been extended by 30 minutes in that region.

Thanos Cup Start Time

Epic Games has confirmed that the Thanos Cup will begin on on June 21. However, they have not confirmed the exact start time on that day, for all regions.

You will be able to check the start time in game once June 21 rolls around.
