Epic Games strikes back and announces the Free Fortnite Cup, a tournament with prizes to make fun of Apple


The war between Epic Games and Apple is still alive. The Fortnite company has made it so with the celebration of a tournament called Free Fortnite Cup with prizes that parody Apple.

In order to continue hurting Apple, Epic Games will hold a new competition under the motto Free Fortnite that it already presented a week ago. This cup has a marked parody character for a very specific prize that will be awarded to the participants.

The next step in this war is this tournament that intends to continue pestering Apple. Epic Games has released a post in which the details of this tournament are indicated: Embark on the mission to achieve one more masterful victory with your friends from all platforms in the #FreeFortnite Cup that takes place this Sunday, August 23.

The tournament rules are very simple. You will have to compete alone in up to 12 games. In each game, a variable amount of points can be scored depending on the result of each player. This is the scale of points:

Everyone who scores 10 points will get the Evil Tycoon costume, a skin that parodies Apple with its apple shape. In addition, the highest ranked will also get a FreeFortnite cap. Other awards have also been announced.
