FNCS 2023

Starting on February 2nd, Epic Games will kick off its returning Fornite Champion Series (FNCS) for 2023 with a massive change. Contestants will compete in a duo format to build up Series Points "based on their performance and results," fighting their way to the top spots for the total prize pool of $10 million.

When February 2nd rolls around, each week will see an FNCS Major 1 competition where duo teams will gain their Series Points. These will add up over a few weeks on a Series Leaderboard to detail the highest cumulative Series Points earned by teams. The top 40 will advance to the FNCS Major 1 Grand Finals.

That event will be held sometime in March. The contestants during the FNCS Major 1 Grand Finals will undergo the same Series Points process from the last round, but this time for a chance to win $2 million. Afterward, the best in each region will advance to the FNCS Global Championship.

The Fortnite Competitive team plans to host the massive 2023 event in Copenhagen, Denmark. It will be an in-person LAN tournament featuring the crème of the crop from around the globe. The winners take home a $4 million prize pool.

Players can watch the FNCS Majors broadcast across multiple platforms: One being in-game at Legend's Landing or on the official FNCS live stream. The Fornite Competitive team is still hashing out details on the FNCS Global Championship, so more details are to come for viewing the event.
