Epic Games has announced a #FreeFortnite Cup that will take place on August 23. The company notes that this is one of the final opportunities for the entire Fortnite community to play together, following Apple's removal of Fortnite from the App Store.

Apple has blocked Fortnite from the App Store, preventing players from updating to new versions. Players on iOS devices will be left behind on Chapter 2 - Season 3 while everyone else jumps into the Chapter 2 - Season 4 launch on August 27. Celebrate the quest for one more Victory Royale with friends across all platforms in the #FreeFortnite Cup this Sunday, August 23. Drop in for an opportunity to win more prizes than ever before including the new Tart Tycoon Outfit, gaming hardware, and exclusive apparel.

Navigate to the in-game Compete tab to see when the event starts for your region and during the scheduled time, you can drop in to the tournament by selecting the #FreeFortnite Cup Playlist. For four hours, eligible players have the opportunity to win prizes in the #FreeFortnite Cup. Compete as a Solo player in up to 12 matches. Scoring is as follows:

● Active Time - 1 point for every 3 minutes on the BR island.
● Eliminations - 1 point per Elim
● Victory Royale - 10 points for each Victory Royale

Prizes include a Tart Tycoon outfit, an IRL #FreeFortnite hat (20,000), and 1,200 pieces of gaming hardware including Alienware Gaming Laptop, Samsung Galaxy Tab S7, OnePlus 8 - 90FPS on a phone, PlayStation 4 Pro, Xbox One X, and Nintendo Switch devices.

Last week, Epic Games launched a direct payment feature in Fortnite that saved users 20% but didn't give Apple 30% of its revenue. Apple promptly pulled the app from the App Store; however, the company was expecting this response and was ready with a lawsuit accusing Apple of anti-competitive restraints and monopolistic practices. A similar scenario played out with Google and the Play Store but it's possible to sideload Fortnite on Android so the impact to users isn't as severe. Apple then threatened to prevent Epic Games from accessing any of its developer tools by August 28 and crush Unreal Engine. Epic responded by filing for a restraining order.
