Fortnite is the most popular game in the world and it has literally gathered a cult following round the world. Though its competitor PUBG may be slightly more popular in India, Epic Games’ Fortnite still has a big following among PS4 players, and this is mainly because PUBG is not available on PS4 until December 7.

And now that PUBG is all set to invade the PS4 space as well, the organizers of Indian Gaming Expo have come up with the idea to hold a Fortnite tournament for the PS4 players around. IGX 2018, which happens to be the fourth edition of the organization in India will be holding the Fortnite tournament with not the usual 100 players, but a modest 25 players, this makes it more manageable and easier to arrange.

The tournament will be held at the Bombay Exhibition Centre in Goregaon which is the official venue hosting the IGX 2018. The registrations for the tournament will begin on November 17 on the IGX website and it will be held on November 24 and 25. The winner will be awarded a 500 Million Limited Edition PS4 Pro console in terms of prize.

We see numerous PUBG and PUBG Mobile tournaments happening in India among the available battle royale games, but Fortnite hasn’t been in the highlights for tournaments in the country which somewhat portrays the skew in the popularity of the battle royale games in India.

Even the mobile version of Fortnite has not been as popular as PUBG Mobile which has managed to gather a cult following in India.
