Epic Games have announced the #FreeFortnite Cup Tournament and a chance to get the Tart Tycoon Fortnite skin for free.
Last week, Epic Games added in the Epic Games direct payment on both the Android and iOS versions of Fortnite. This meant Epic could reduce the prices of V-Bucks by saving from payment processing fees with with Apple and Google taking a 30% cut from in-app purchases.
This lead to Fortnite being removed from the Apple story and the Google Play Store. Epic filed a lawsuit in response, and Apple have decided to terminate the ability for Epic employees to use the Apple developer tools.
When Apple pulled Fortnite from the Apple store, Epic Games released a Fortnite short mocking Apples 1984 commercial. They also released a blog post called #FreeFortnite in which they urged players to use social media to back the campaign.
Epic have now announced the #FreeFortnite cup tournament with a chance to win prizes as well as a free Fortnite skin.
