With this in mind, we should see an announcement from Fortnite's social media channels later today.

How To Participate In The New Cup

This looks like it's going to be another Trios tournament and that means you're going to need to find another two players to team up with for the event. All members of your chosen Trio will need to be in the Champions League in Arenas Mode.

In addition to this, you're going to need to have Two-Factor Authentification (2FA) enabled and an account that's over level 30. At this stage of the game, this shouldn't be too hard.

After you've done this, you should be able to sign up online or through an in-game option when it goes live. We'll keep you updated on that.

Scoring Format Per Round

As always, there's going to be four rounds and your position is dictated purely on your Eliminations. There's no point hiding in a bush for this one! Here's what you need to know.
