Epic Games has announced the 2021 competitive schedule for the FNCS and other tournaments throughout Season 5.

In a post on Epic Game’s official website, they’ve confirmed plans for several Fortnite tournaments throughout 2021. Competitive events will take place on most Mondays and Fridays, with additional competitions spread throughout the week.

While the official dates have not been announced yet, at least we now know which weekdays are planned to be tournament days, and all of the events we have to look forward to.

Here’s the rundown of all the planned upcoming events.

Friday Nite Bragging Rights

Starting Friday, January 8, Friday Nite bragging rights tournaments will be almost every Friday through the competitive season. It will be split by platform, with all PC, console, and mobile platforms having their own ladder.

All winners will get a shoutout from the Fortnite Competitive Twitter account every week. This will be a trio format.

Battle Royale Cash Cups – Mondays

Beginning Monday, January 11, Battle Royale Cash Cups will be tournaments similar to Contender Cash Cups, with real cash prizes.

These events will be in a trio format and cross-platform. Events will occur on a bi-weekly basis.

LTM Tournments

LTM tournaments are back and will be similar to Wild Wednesday’s from last season. These will occur on alternating Mondays, presumably when the Cash Cups are not active.

The mode and tournament format will be announced on the Fortnite Competitive Twitter ahead of the events. Cash prizes will be awarded to top players in each region.

FNCS (and more)

FNCS will be officially starting Thursday, February 4. More information regarding the FNCS will be released in the coming weeks.

Additionally, more tournaments will be released throughout the season in modes other than trios. These will also be announced via the Fortnite Competitive Twitter.

Fortnite Season 3 Battle Pass leak reveals Darth Vader and Indiana Jones skins

A Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3 leak appears to have revealed that Darth Vader and Indiana Jones skins will feature on the new Battle Pass.

Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3 is almost here, and a major leak has allegedly revealed some of the new crossover skins fans can expect, including Star Wars’ Darth Vader and Indiana Jones.

With Season 2 nearing its conclusion, attention is beginning to turn to Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3 and what’s in store. One of the most exciting parts of any new season is seeing which new crossovers Epic has up its sleeve, after Obi-Wan Kenobi and even Wu-Tang Clan in Season 2.

Each new era comes with a new Battle Pass stuffed with plenty of skins to unlock, and Chapter 3 Season 3’s appear to have leaked ahead of time.

If the leak is to be believed, some beloved characters from classic films are set to finally make their debut in Fortnite.

In a May 25 tweet, respected Fortnite leaker ShiinaBR shared an image that seemed to suggest that Darth Vader and Indiana Jones are set to headline Chapter 3 Season 3.

The Battle Pass section pictured the iconic Star Wars villain alongside an original Fortnite skin, likely indicating that Vader will be the Level 100 unlock in the new season.

Indiana Jones, featuring the likeness of actor Harrison Ford, is also depicted on the “Coming Soon” tile. This could hint that the legendary archaeologist is the new secret skin, much like Marvel’s Prowler in Season 2.

The image came from 4chan, but the leaker claimed the chances of it being a fake mock-up were “extremely low.”

Rumors of Darth Vader coming to Fortnite as a skin have been swirling for some time, as plenty of other Star Wars characters like Rey, Kylo Ren, and The Mandalorian have all joined the battle royale in the past.

With the much-anticipated Obi-Wan series, which is set to see Hayden Christensen return as the disgraced Anakin Skywalker, releasing shortly before Season 3 gets underway, it wouldn’t be a surprise if Epic felt now was the right time.

Of course, this is all just speculation until the trailer for Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3 drops and the Battle Pass is revealed.

Will Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 2 have a live event finale?

According to data miners following the v20.40 update, Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 2 will end with a live event.

Data miners have discovered strings that appear to prove there will be a season-ending live event finale. Leaker FNBRintel has discovered a ton of strings for the event, which include an in-game countdown and a way for streamers to use DMCA-free music during it.

Another leaker, FortTory, has also said that there will be a pre-event lobby where “we can expect some animations and sequences” before the main event. However, they won’t say anything more for now.

New skins for Paradigm and Jonesy have also been found in the patch notes, and Shiina believes they’ll have a part to play in the live event finale. They also leaked that there will be “multiple cosmetics available for the event.”

When is Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 2’s live event finale?

Fortnite’s live events usually take place on the last day of the season, and a report from ShiinaBR claims that the Chapter 3, Season 2 event will begin on June 4, 2022.

According to this leak, the event will take place for the entirety of June 4, and Chapter 3, Season 3 will officially go live the very next day. Shiina claims that they first heard these dates a few days prior to this leak.

Fortnite Intel claimed in a tweet that once the event concludes, there will be “an extended downtime,” with a “waiting screen similar to previous events.” Currently, it has not been confirmed exactly how long the downtime will last.

It will most likely end in the early hours of June 5, as that’s the time Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 3 is expected to launch. However, these are currently just leaks, so be sure to take this information with a grain of salt.
