Fortnite's competitive game modes allow players to test their skills and prove who's the best in battle royale. Epic Games is known for hosting cash cups and other competitions to further promote the game's competitive community. And there is always a lot of cash involved. But just because things are going well doesn't mean Epic Games is resting on its laurels.

A recent blog post from Epic describes how the competitive scene will change in Chapter 4, Season 4. Here are the details.
