Epic Games announce FNCS All-Star Showdown

Epic Games has officially announced the $3,000,000 FNCS All-Star Showdown, available to the top players in the community in 2021.

Fortnite Champion Series

Epic Games announces the $3,000,000 FNCS All-Star Showdown, starting after the end of Season 6.

With the start of Season 6 comes the start to an all-new competitive season for Fortnite’s highest tier players to battle in. With the decision by Epic Games to transfer Arena points from Season 5 to Season 6, we’re sure to see many more players get their shot to play in the big leagues in future Champions Tournaments.

Once the end of the competitive pre-season rolls around on March 23, 2021, players will start grinding away, with the goal of being invited to the All-Star Showdown.

FNCS All-Star Showdown Schedule

The FNCS All-Star Showdown will take place from June 23-26. Since Season 6 is slated to end on June 8, this means that we’ll be seeing the Showdown during Fortnite’s seventh season.

This tournament will be by invitation only, reserved for the most accomplished players in the competitive community. According to Epic, the invitations will be reserved for a set amount of players and will be offered based on the final rankings for the end of Chapter 2 Season 5 and 6.

Players who also play with the same teams across both seasons will also see those scores being factored together, so if you’ve had a competitive squad through Season 5, you might want to stick together through Season 6 to get a better chance to get invited.

The event itself will consist of several skill challenges, a non-Battle Royale team-based competition, and a Solo tournament, with an overall prize pool of $3,000,000. After this huge tournament, Epic has announced there will be a two-week break from competitive events, so don’t expect to see any competitions between June 28-July 11.

With that being said, we’ll update you if we hear any more about this event from Epic Games. Best of luck this season!

Some new Fortnite leaks suggest that Epic Games are planning to bring lightsabers back to the battle royale as part of a new Star Wars Obi-Wan crossover.

Fortnite has become known for its major collaborations with other popular franchises. Epic Games have brought a ton of crossover content from the Star Wars universe to the battle royale.

The Mandalorian headlined the Season 5 Battle Pass, and Boba Fett is currently an unlockable skin. Now, some leaks suggest that Epic Games are bringing back lightsabers as part of a Star Wars Obi-Wan collaboration.

According to notable Fortnite leaker ‘FNAssist,’ Epic Games re-added Star Wars lightsaber files in the v19.10 update. This means that they could be planning to bring them back to the game in the near future.

Lightsabers are some of the most iconic weapons in cinema history, and they were available as Mythic melee weapons during Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 2. There were four differently-colored versions of them in the game.

Now, players are speculating that the weapon might be included in a collaboration with the upcoming ‘Obi-Wan’ Disney+ Star Wars series. We might also see the titular character arrive as a new skin.

The leaks state that the 19.10 update added lightsaber animations along with some melee combat mechanics, gameplay abilities, and VFX. This could mean that the weapon will make its return in the game.

Alternatively, they could be working on a new melee weapon and are basing it off the animation and abilities of the lightsaber. However, this information has yet to be verified by the developers themselves.

It’s worth keeping in mind that these are currently just leaks, so take them with a grain of salt until Epic Games officially announce something. We’ll keep checking for updates regarding this.

According to notable Fortnite data miners ‘HYPEX’ and ‘ralisdumb’ the classic Spider-Man villain will be flying into Fortnite as part of a new Marvel crossover. Players will unlock him as a new outfit.

Some leaks from ‘GMatrixGames’ have revealed the complete set of Green Goblin cosmetics that will be coming to Fortnite. These will presumably be part of a single bundle in the Item Store.

Here are all the leaked Green Goblin cosmetics:

  • Green Goblin outfit
  • Pumpkin Bomb Back Bling
  • Arm The Pumpkin emote
  • Goblin Glider
  • Attack Of The Goblin loading screen
  • Pumpkin Pickaxe

It’s worth keeping in mind that these are currently just leaks, and this information has yet to be verified by Epic Games. So, take this with a grain of salt until the developers officially confirm Goblin’s arrival.

This classic villain is Spidey’s arch-nemesis and has appeared in multiple films, including the recent Spider-Man: No Way Home. So, it makes sense that Epic Games might add him after his recent surge in popularity.

How to get the Green Goblin skin in Fortnite

Leaks have revealed that the Green Goblin outfit will be available for purchase in the Fortnite Item Shop. While we don’t know the exact cost, you’ll most likely have to spend around 1,500 V-Bucks.

At the time of writing, no release date has been confirmed for the Green Goblin skin in Fortnite. According to HYPEX, it will most likely arrive in the game at some point during the next two weeks.

We’ll keep checking for any more developments regarding the arrival of Green Goblin in Fortnite Chapter 3. As soon as we get some more information, we’ll be sure to update this article.
