Fortnite World Cup Creative qualifiers will run from April 29 until June 7 and will actually be quite simple to partake in. A new Creative Trial will be posted each week between those dates, and players are encouraged to upload the best clips of what they created to YouTube with a hashtag specific to that week’s trial. All the videos will then be vetted by Epic before the best are judged by the creator behind said trail. For the first one, submissions will ultimately be judged by Cizzorz, who has over 4.3 million subscribers on YouTube.
The players who win each week will qualify for the finals and ultimately head to New York to compete in July. During the Fortnite World Cup Creative event itself, fifteen players will compete to get a portion of a $3,000,000 prize pool.
