Our Fortnite Summer Skirmish page contains details of the confirmed players, and will be updated with schedule, stream and results information as soon as they become available.

A little earlier on this week Epic Games announced a major new step for Fortnite's competitive scene with the announcement of the Fortnite Summer Skirmish.

The event will be spread across eight weeks, with a total of $8,000,000 being put up for grabs for the winners throughout the tournament series.

In this article, we wanted to bring together all of the information that's currently known about the event in one place. Right now details are a little thin on the ground - even as we approach the tournament itself - but we'll be slotting in new information continuously as it's confirmed by Epic.

Week 1 - Saturday 14th July 2018 (Duos)

The first event in the Fortnite Summer Skirmish is a Duos competition. That means two players teaming up to try and emerge top-dog as a team. The prize pool for this weekend is set at $250,000.

In its initial announcement, Epic Games stated that competitors would be represented by community creators, as well as those players who have have already established their competitive chops in previous events.

Epic hasn't released an official list of players at the time of publishing this article, however. Through a bit of digging around on Twitter, Reddit and elsewhere though, we've been able to confirm that the following players are taking part.

(This list will be tidied up a little once we have more detail from Epic, and we know who's teaming up with who)

  • Chaps / 72hrs
  • Cloak / HD
  • Courage / Baldy
  • Jack ' Courage' Dunlop / Baldykun
  • KittyPlays / Tfue
  • Mongraal/ Domentos
  • NoahJ456 / Yelo
  • Typical Gamer / Thiefs
  • Faze Replays / Unknown
  • KP5ive / Unknown
  • NickEh30 / Unknown
  • Nickmercs / Unknown
  • One Shot Gurl / Unknown
  • Strafesh0t / Unknown
  • Valkyrae / Unknown

How to watch the Fortnite Summer Skirmish

Since we first published this article we've had a little more information from Epic about how to actually tune into the event. Here's a tweet from earlier:

Summer Skimirsh Start Times

  • 1:00PM PST
  • 4:00PM EST
  • 9:00PM GMT
  • 10:00PM CEST

Twitch Stream

You can also follow the tournament over at the official Fortnite YouTube channel.

Who's playing and when in the Fortnite Summer Skirmish

The exact timetable for the Fortnite Summer Skirmish has not yet been confirmed.

Once we have an idea of who's playing who and when, we'll add timings in here so you know when to be online for the action.

That marks the end of our guide to the first week of the Fortnite Summer Skirmish 2018.

There are quite a few gaps left to fill in but we're watching the game's official social media channels like a hawk.

As soon as Epic provides more detail on the tournament, we'll update this article. Let us know in the comments if you've found any information that's not currently included and we'll add it in with credit.

    Just added in a little bit more information that's been confirmed overnight. Start times for US, UK and EU timezones have been added, along with an embed of the official Twitch stream.

    Still no word on match times though, but if the information's released I'll add it straight in. Enjoy!
