You've done it again, Gamers8. After recently hosting one of the biggest Rocket League LAN tournaments ever (which we were there to report live for you, by the way), we're now continuing with Fortnite!

The tournament is part of the Gamers8 Esports and Music Festival - a futuristic experience that aims to "bring the virtual world of gaming into the physical world".

Top Fortnite pros, content creators, and some coming from community qualifiers will compete live in Saudi Arabia in both Zero Build and Standard Battle Royale modes for a total prize pool of $2 million.
